If you are in or close to Dana Point and want a coffee or tea drink, please don't go to Starbuck's. JC Beans is 1 block away from a SB and light years better in every respect.

Best Coffee spot in South Orange County. Great selection of beans from all over the globe. The Danish/pastries are also excellent. Tables to sit and talk or finish their studies.

We stayed in Laguna and were on the hunt for good iced coffee. We found JCs and loved their drive through service. We only had iced coffee but it was a great coffee and very cheap. Well worth the 5 minute drive for the right cup of coffee!

Local spot with good service and coffee. I stop in here every time I am in town. I often get the Killer Dana blend to go with whole beans ground for my french press.
