San Luis Obispo classic for hearing great musicians, ranging from local to visitors passing through. One of my favorite discoveries there was Teresa Tudury.

I was looking for an espresso like a machiato, but not exactly (where in this country do they make the equivalent of a cafe con leche?) they were able to give me something like what i was looking for, so they get bonus points for their ability to add hot milk (not froth) to a double shot espresso, but it didn't hit the mark. The pastries were OK but nothing great.

Our daughter strongly recommended we visit Linnaea's Cafe if we were in the area, so we made a point of stopping in for breakfast as we traveled north on Hwy 101. Good choice! We enjoyed the best cappuccino and latte we'd had in ages, plus a mango scone so scrumptious we had to try a second variety (orange and rosemary), and it was equally delicious. My husband ordered a breakfast burrito that was excellent; made me wish I'd ordered the espresso eggs. (Next time.) The young folks working the counter were friendly and welcoming. The outdoor courtyard was charming, though a bit chilly and damp (it is November, for heaven's sake). Thank you, Linnaea, whoever you are!

They have good coffe and snacks and the place has a nice quiet patio in back. Service could be more attentive and friendly. They barely acknowledge you.

Linnea's Cafe is a great, traditional, side-street coffee house just off the main drag in San Luis Obispo. It has great coffee and tea, yummy snacks, and local entertainment.
