Been here once, passing through Santa Cruz and tried a pour over. They have a lot of options of fresh beans. Excellent service and they offer a lot of sweets!

The best coffee in Santa Cruz! Each cup is freshly made while you wait. Has all the usual bakery goods.

We enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning. This place makes an exceptionally great cup of coffee. Beyond the product itself, this place had a special charm to me. It's inviting and tends to attract younger customers than the Starbucks right across the street. Love this place.

I went in this morning to have some coffee and pastry to kill some time before a meeting. I had a chocolate croissant which was very stale, had to be a few days old. I also had a mocha and the chocolate was average and there was little or not coffee flavor. In a large mocha you need more than... More

This is one of my favorite places to get coffee. It's always friendly and the quality of the coffee is wonderful. My favorite is Steve's Smooth French and I always take several bags home with me for myself and for gifts. They also sell pastries and a small selection of food, but the coffee is the main attraction.

Visited 5-6 coffee shops. Same deal--a lot of people taking space with laptops but hard to find a place to sit after purchasing something to eat/drink. Tried the coffee, OK but not great. Had a quiche but really, really salty. Would probably have been good otherwise but couldn't get past the excess salt. Atmosphere not so good compared to others... More

These folks are awesome. I ordered two vanilla lattes. They arrived in to-go paper cups. I explained they were "for here" and could they please pour them into ceramic cups. "No, let me re-make it." Yes, not kidding. They remade it, and what I got was two works of art with the best vanilla latte on the central coast. The... More
