“Internet Cafe”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Needed to find internet while on vacation in Pacific City. This fit the bill with a coffee and bakery and comfortable seating are. Beats Starbucks.

“Quiche is delicious!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

My boyfriend and I visited this place while in Pacific City for the night and had their breakfast quiche, which was absolutely delicious. Coffee is great too, and they have neat books and posters in the shop for purchase. Highly recommend!

“Yummy treats”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

The cafe is a cute little spot for your coffee, and or tea break. We enjoy breakfast there, and mid afternoon snacks. You can get yummy cookies, biscotti, croissants with various fillings etc... I don't drink coffee, but have heard the coffee is good. They offer assorted Smith's tea. A great place to sit outside, and watch the happenings of Pacific City, and the beach.

“Good use of my stimulus dollars!”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

I like to find non-Starbucks coffee shops when I'm out and about. Stimulus Cafe in Pacific City is a fine example of why it's worth the search. Great service ... with only 2 baristas behind the counter, they handled a line that wrapped around the cafe, with ease and speed. I tried their dark chocolate mocha and it was amazing. My husband, pretty much a non-coffee drinker, tried their hot chocolate coffee drink and barely tasted the coffee! They have both sweet and spicy chai and mixed them together for a wonderful hot chai. Had to try a cinnamon roll ... they rate a pretty good, not great. Could use raisins or dried cranberries or cherries in them or something. A bit bland. Also tried the quiche for lunch. Tasty! Plus the baristas happily warm up your food. On a cold, wet day at the beach, it all hits the spot.

The "I Got Stimulated" t's and hoodies are cute. There's even a few shelves of books for sale. Or you can simply take a seat, sip away and enjoy your drink. I'll go back.

With tables and chairs a plenty inside, plus outside seating with a view of the ocean, this makes for a great coffee stop.
