A friend asked me to meet her here and I expected a place for coffee and muffins. I was very surprised to find this place has sandwiches, smoothies and all sorts of great things. Excellent food, good prices and 3 great patios overlooking the water...More

We had a great breakfast experience here on our Californian road trip. A lovely sandwich of avocado tomato and cheese and the very healthy and tasty mixed juice was brilliant. Lovely sunshine and lots of people and their dogs just all doing their thing. Fabulous...More

Sat in the sun, looking at the boats in the Marina. The spicy Chai Tea Latte was perfect, as was my dark roast coffee. They had breakfast choices too.

We usually only get there in the morning for coffee and meet friends. Today we had a Californian and a Lox / cream cheese and both were outstanding. The creatively large menu will meet everyone’s expectations.

I received a gift card to The Coffee Importers and decided to try it with my son and his family. We all loved the hot chocolate! We even sprinkled cinnamon on top. They had kid’s sizes for the little ones! Will definitely go back again!

After your morning walk or during your evening stroll to see the holiday lights, this is the place. Lots of beverage and pastry choices so make sure to get those steps in. Some inside seating and lots outside. Always busy. Good place to people watch.

We had their ice cream - could not resist having a double sugar cone, two different flavours - so filling, but very good.

Hey Sandy! Glad to hear that you enjoyed our ice cream. Lappert’s Ice Cream is namely a “premium” ice cream and is definitely thick and filling! I’m so happy that you had a good experience at our store. See you again soon! -Jim Miller, Owner

We've been gone from this area for a decade, so we're curious to see if our favorite waterfront cafe was still here. It is! And, better than ever! Perfect for a relaxing leisurely brunch by the pier, or for a grab and go coffee and...More

We stopped for breakfast on our first morning in Dana Point. What a great way to begin any day: sunshine and coffee on the harbor. We ended up going back twice more to try the smoothies and the bagels, which are fresh and delicious. Service...More
