Start of with your favorite coffee drink. There is a large variety of bakery goods and sandwiches. There is a nice lounge area with ocean view for enjoying your morning coffee.

We always stay at Inn at Cape Kiwanda and it's nice to have Stimulus just downstairs for a quick breakfast in the morning. Their cinnamon rolls are excellent!

I've been coming to Pacific city for years and love it. Stimulus was always a great place for coffee, free wifi and all kinds of freshly made sandwiches that you can take to the beach. Now all the food is premade and totally not the same. You can still get your fluffy coffee drink and watch the ocean. Not sure... More

Nice, clean, fairly new looking coffee place. Stopped in here to check on some work e-mails and was pleasantly surprised by great servers and coffee. Wi-fi connected quickly with no problems. I was able to get my work done before I was done with my coffee.

My mom loves her coffee and she raved about this place. She wanted just a good coffee and breakfast item, like a scone or muffin, and she wasn't disappointed. This place is in the front of our hotel, open early and great view of the beach. Worth the stop. She even got some coupons and the service was fast.

The only place in Pacific City open at 6 AM...good specialty drinks. Friendly staff, and a really great area to sit and hang out, catch up on the news, and drink the coffee. Skip the rest of the coffee joints such as they are...head to this one

We received a few coupons while staying at the cottages...coffee's were excellent but I'll never understand the locals desire to pollute good coffee with peanut butter and caramel, etc. Breakfast croissant with sausage was super tasty but really really rich. Solid place to have coffee everyday. Nice touch to post the tides for surfers.

The coffee is really good and the view of The rock at Cape Kiwanda is terrific. the atmosphere/decor inside is really ordinary and just doesn't live up to the great coffee and amazing view across the street. so get your coffee to go and head for the beach. It is an easy walk across the street. Staff is friendly and... More

The spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean is just the beginning of your experience. We offer Stumptown coffee served proudly by professional baristas in a vibrant, engaging environment.

Oh yes, free wi-fi, too, if you need to work on your vacation or just update your Facebook. Now that sounds delicious.Stimulus is open from 6am to 6pm everyday of the year.
