We did a random coffee shop google search and I'm so glad we chose Best Coast! Grabbed a great cup of coffee and a breakfast bowl while we sat and watched the ocean from their patio.

We stopped by here today because it’s the place all the locals rave about. Has he hit chocolate and would highly recommend it. Smooth and rich, will definitely order again.

Great morning at Bear Coast. The scones were delish and the people friendly...felt like a regular! That morning someone bought everyone’s drinks. What a great thing to do...and we paid it forward later!!!

We stopped for a cup of coffee and a sweet roll while walking along the San Clemente Beach Trail. Service was quick and the drinks were good. There is seating at the shop, but somewhat prettier views across the street overlooking the Pacific.

Loved the coffee. This is an ideal place to hang out for an early morning cup right after a walk on the beach. It’s conveniently located by the beach.

Great place to grab a quick coffee/tea and pastry. If you have extra time just sit and watch the world go by at their sidewalk bar.
