This is an unassuming cafe with a light menu and decent coffee. It is across the street from the Pacifica Ocean. If it's the right time of year, you can sit, sip and watch whales spout! This is a weird thing to say, but the chairs are oddly heavy. You'll understand why I say this when you pull one out.... More

The Chit-Chat Cafe is one of the best things going in Pacifica, otherwise a kind of slow-paced chill beach town. It's a casual local experience with magnificent views of the sunsets and waves. Adequate drinks and food, but the views and live music and friendly locals are the highlights. Strong Wifi too.

This is a lovely little café with sea view, relatively close to the airport. There are a good range of sandwiches, coffee and cake. A great place to relax and watch the world go by.

This little coffee shop is home to "the locals". I found it in 2012 while traveling on and off Highway 1 and have had breakfast there about 6 times since. With great coffee, muffins, breakfast sandwiches and the Pacific Ocean on 3 sides this little spot is where I fill up, chat with a very friendly cast of characters and... More

The food and service are always excellent here and at their sister cafe at the Pacifica Pier. Fresh baked goods daily and delicious coffee, wonderful sandwiches, all served in the comfortable ambiance of a quite den. The bonus is the view of the Pacific, the Pier and, if you are lucky, whales feeding and playing in the waves.

Coffee, bagels and ocean view. What can be better? Chit chat is a nice cozy little place in pacifica. You can see an ocean from your sit. On weekends they have a band playing in the morning. Highly recommend.

Not many places around where you can get a good latte, watch the ocean in action and listen to good local music (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). Friendly staff, bagels and sandwiches. Mimosas Sunday mornings!

Stopped here on a rainy day and what a find!! Place where many locals come for coffee and/or tea. Directly across from post office. Coffee, tea, almond croissant, and chocolate-peanut butter cookie were all great. Service was first rate. View stupendous--could watch 20 foots waves break as we sipped tea. This is a short walk (3 blocks on scenic path)... More
