We stopped in for a quick latte. Glad we did. Some of the change coffee places use water that is too hot for properly pulling a shot of espresso. Not here. It's just right.

Started my day here 3 times. We didn't realize there was a full breakfast menu until the last day. Pastries are delicious and the coffee is smooth and strong. Wish they'd put the cream in something other than its carton. Overall reliable place.

Was good location in downtown Monterey. Has the best avocado breakfast, the avocado tartine with poached eggs. Relaxing to get coffee or cafe latte there, and hang out with my ipad and husband.

Tucked away off the main drag. Good coffee. Small but good brunch menu. Croissant sandwich, chorizo hash, etc. And the mimosas come with fresh squeezed OJ.
