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

We enjoyed fruit with yoghurt and granola together with bacon and egg quiche accompanied by flat whites. A very enjoyable breakfast; good quality; hot and tasty. The cafe was full of life and energy with excellent wifi; the staff were helpful and polite

Good coffee and fast...the only game in town if you are staying at the cottages! Nice looking baked goods and friendly service. They open at six and stay open fairly late in the evening.

Same as the Pelican Pub without the view. Egg, cheese and ham croissant 9$ without even a plate or service? Coffee was fine but price/value is not okay.

I've been here a few times and the coffee has been consistently good. The pastries we tried (scone, cookie, quiche) were all good and the service was plenty fast. Seating was good, wifi was fast and for the younger crowd there is a Pokemon gym located at the shop. The location and views are also perfect.

You have to have time to kill and money to spend if get coffee here! The service is poor, the wait time is long, and the prices are high. The location and proximity to the beach and vacation properties keep this joke afloat. They have some fun trinkets and T-Shirts to buy. I am not a coffee snob but my... More

I really appreciate the early hours they are willing to do here. So many times I've been up in the wee hours desperate for coffee and they've always come through with a smile. They have excellent snacks and coffee. A cute little place conveniently located across from beach.

Thank DeneMiles
