“Great pastries and so-so coffee”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

This is a place we wanted to love - easy on and off to Hwy 1, a nice homey interior, friendly service and wonderful home-baked pastries. Their peach muffin is delicious - moist, full of peach flavor and not too sweet. Unfortunately, the primary reason for stopping at a coffee house is great coffee and this restaurant falls way short of that basic goal - in fact, my cappuccino was probably the singularly worst one I've ever ordered - virtually no expresso flavor and a cup full of warm milk. Some great beans and a little barista training could make this place a winner. In the interim, there are much better choices in the area for a good coffee drink.

“Good coffee in a comfortable environment”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

This is a coffee house that is low-keyed and the opposite of Starbucks. They have several selections of good coffee and a few bakery goods for sale. It's located right off the freeway at the beginning of town of the east side. The shop itself is done in what I call conservative "hippie style" which makes for a comfortable environment.

“Good coffee right off the highway.”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Have been here twice now. Getting ready to drive up the PCH and stopped for a good cup of coffee. Nice service and good place to hang out. It is very convenient and reasonably priced so I know I will stop here again next time I am in the area.
