“A Caffeinated Surprise in Dana Point!”
Review of Crank & Grind

Restaurant details

What a cool place this is. I have been to Crank and Grind a number of times during my visits to the area.

No rocket science here. Just great coffee whether a fresh brew or top notch latte. Housed in a local bike store, even if you are not a cyclist, you might just find some unique items and clothing.

Plenty of seating inside and out and perfect for people watching the surfers, Orange County Socialites, Tourists and other locals.

So leave the Starbucks behind and opt for a traditional coffee house. You will be met with a smile, great service and amazing coffee. I'll be back.

Best flat-white outside of New Zealand :) Superb coffee made by skilled & friendly baristas... Plenty of shiny bikes to look at while you wait, just dont mention to the Aussie bike shop owner that you support the All Blacks or England, he will turn away and not speak to you again!

Looking for GREAT or should I say AMAZING coffee? This is the place. Walk, ride or run to the best coffee in Dana Point. Try their cold press brew- you won't be disappointed.

Rode our bikes up from the harbor to try the best coffee in so cal (per TA reviews)
Fast friendly service, a perfect cappicino and delicious apple crumb cake.
Bummer it was all served in paper and plastic when others are served in real coffee cups and glass. Only reason I did not give 5 stars. Not Earth Friendly. Love the coffee and cake, would stop in again.

Staying here in Dana Point, My Brother-in-law Ritch a Cyclist, recommended to stop in and have a "Pour Over" at a Bicycle Shop!! WoW! We dont have anything like this back in NY!! The Guys are So Friendly and Knowledgeable about their Coffee, it was soooo Good!! Cant Beat a Great Cup of Coffee. Different Types of Roasts from Mild Blends to Coffee that will get your heart Pumping!! The Bike Store is also Amazing, See Mike There, Has a Great selection of road Bikes and Mountain Bikes. Coffee Shop opens Nice and Early 6am during the week and a little later on Weekend, they have some tables to sit and enjoy also some great Danishes! Cant wait to go Back, Great Job Guys!! Wish they did this back on Long Island.
