“A Must Do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We recently stayed at a nearby hotel and came here every morning for breakfast. My husband loved the coffee and they also had tea available which I drank. Coffee aside, their scones are THE best. The first day we had the bacon blue cheese scone and we fought over every crumb. The second day we had that again and the orange chocolate scone...oh my gosh, I am craving them right now!!

“Great coffee and gluten free snacks too !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

This coffee shop has a great ambiance and the coffee is wonderful. I was particularly happen to find gluten free lemon seed cake and banana cake. The latter is hard to find - it was fresh and tasty.

“They do coffee right!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

It is often difficult to find a good cup of coffee when traveling but this tiny shop fills the bill in Cannon Beach. You can stop here either for a cup or to buy beans to make your own if you have a place to brew them. Sleepy Monk has been roasting beans for more than 20 years and the experience shows in the flavor of the coffees. For those who wish just a regular cup of brew, you can chose your desired size and then taste sample an array of coffees ranging from light to very dark roast to select your preference. It's an approach I wish was used in more shops because it gives you the chance to compare the differences in roast types. If you wish something more exotic, no problem there as they offer the usual selection of coffee bar favorites and I can attest that they make a delightful cappuccino. They offer a selection of baked in the shop coffee treats to accompany the beverages. We sampled one which sounded a bit different from the norm - a bacon and blue cheese scone. It was delicious! The scone was as light as a cloud and the bacon/blue cheese combination was not only delicious but a welcome option to the typical sweet flavors.

The shop decor tends to the eclectic and funky. A number of the wall art pieces have been done especially for the shop and add an additional touch of uniqueness. If you're in Cannon Beach and looking for coffee and a bit of local feel, this is the perfect place but don't come late as they close mid-afternoon to let The Irish Table take over for the evening.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Visiting with my wife while in Canon Beach. Druids Delight was fantastic and we also had some pumpkin chocolate chip bread that melted in your mouth. Great place and fun atmosphere. Very busy, but moved quickly.

“Really Special Coffee House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Do yourself a favor and stop in at Sleepy Monk for coffee while in Cannon Beach. Both the coffee and pastries will make it worth your while. For the quality, the prices are more than fair.

The mochas are made with a bittersweet chocolate, so they're not too sweet, and topped with a homemade chocolate whipped cream. Fantastic. A 12oz, two shot mocha was $3.75 - a real steal. They also have a caramel sauce available; again, the latte is nicely sweetened by the caramel sauce but isn't over the top.

As for the pastries, get there early, as many of the them sell out. The "Good for You" muffin is exceptional. I'd hoped to get an orange chocolate scone on my second visit, but, alas, I was too late. The chocolate oat cookie I purchased in its place was very satisfying (unlike the coffees, though, no sweetness was spared in the cookie).

The only caution I have is that you shouldn't stop in if you can't wait. It's 10-15 minutes from ordering to preparation, but that's due to their tremendous popularity. They have all the staff that can possibly fit in the space and they're all busy working. Can't fault 'em for being too popular, just be aware that it takes time.
