Try this place where they brew wonderful organic, fair trade coffee. The black iced coffee was great.

I'm working in Oakhurst for a few weeks and have come to love this cafe. The staff is very friendly and helpful, their coffee is delicious and organic, and they have a great array of pastries, sandwiches, and delicious quiche. They have high-speed internet and a a really nice patio, making it a great place to sit and do work. The only downside is that they share the patio with the pizza place next door and I have a hard time resisting the pizza, too (but that's my problem, not theirs!). I am usually a Starbucks fan, but in this town Cool Bean Cafe is by far the better choice. It's a much cozier place with great coffee, yummy food and friendly service.

We didn't have breakfast were we stayed and found this place by chance. We liked the food and the coffee was really good. Free WiFi and very nice people.
