This is a super cute coffee shop. It has lots of book and you can even buy them for just $2. The coffee and pastries were great. Parking was the major downside. We had to park across the street.

Only have had the brewed coffee an I find it the best in Dana Point. Did drive through as parking is a little of a problem. They have different types of brewed coffee and all are good.

If you are in or close to Dana Point and want a coffee or tea drink, please don't go to Starbuck's. JC Beans is 1 block away from a SB and light years better in every respect.
