I love this place for a quick breakfast. The fruit bowl with honey is so good, but even better try the Acai Bowl with peanut butter and granola. It is soooo good! And large enough to share. Fresh fruit, acai berry goo that tastes like soft serve ice cream and fresh granola all rolled into a large colorful fiesta bowl.... More

Love this coffee shop. The coffee & tea drinks are quite good. The outstanding item on the menu are the Acai Bowls. Several choices but all very yummy. Worth the wait on a busy weekend morning. The outdoor seating is a great space or you can grab and go as it is a short walk to the beach. Definite must... More

This is one of the best coffee shop experiences I've ever had and I'm so thankful to the TA community for the recommendation. First off, when you're driving up to the location, you'll see the sign for the Rincon Bicycle shop at the street, this is where you turn in to the parking lot. The Lucky Llama is on the... More

Hubby got the Mayan mocha and it had a lot of cinnamon..good thing! We both had muffins..I had the banana chocolate and hubby... More

I went to this coffeehouse on the recommendation of a friend of mine. I don't drink coffee however it sounded like a really nice place. My husband and I ended up getting the chai iced latte. We got ours with almond milk and it was delicious. I'm going to go back again before we leave and get another cup. It... More
