My wife and I stopped at Seal Beach State Park and a local resident told us we had to try the pastries at the little yellow shack on the side of the road a quarter mile back. With this type of recommendation, we had to check it out even if we had to turn around to do it. Boy was it worth the detour!

We were fortunate to meet "Judy" who had just made a batch of apricot bear claws. I personally have never had something that melted in your mouth better than these treats. Matched with a pair of Lattes these Coloradans were in 7th heaven. It often pays to listen to a local and this time was sure right.

Formerly under a different name and owner, this has been a local landmark for years.

The current owners are local, and doing a fine job, providing great coffees from the Longbottom line which are Fair Trade and Shade Grown Organic certified (for those of us who are socially and environmentally responsible). (They will also sell by the pound for those who want this great coffee for later!)

Judy is also an excellent pastry chef, and makes a variety of tasty treats.

Tasty treats, great coffee, and good service, all in scenic SeaL Rock! What could be better? Grab a tasty pastry and mocha and head for the park to enjoy them with the incredible view!! (Please be sure to dispose of your trash properly -- the sea birds and animals would thank you if they could, but I will do it for them!)

Not being coffee connoisseurs we won't claim the brew was great (we had a sugar free flavored latte), but it was decent. The owner was friendly & willing to modify the drink per our request. The maple bar was very thick & doughy, but it could have used a bit more icing to balance it out.
The cinnamon scone, however, was pure ooey-gooey goodness. We'll be driving through next time just for these, with the plan to buy one fresh and some additional frozen so we can bake and enjoy them at home.

Sure there are plenty of coffee kiosks around, but not one with the excellent service, location, friendly atmosphere and of course delicious coffee. If your in the neighborhood be sure to stop by and see for yourself, it's like a pleasant topping for your already enjoyable visit.
