The coffee is decent. The snacks are okay. They do have the famous VG donuts, which you should definitely try if you like donuts. The breakfast burrito tasted suspiciously like it had been frozen but it was grilled and I liked it okay.

So why do we love the Nautical Bean? It’s the million dollar view of course! When we walk Oceanside Harbor and do some sea lion watching, we love to pick up hot coffee and sit outside and take in the sunshine. Try it. You’ll like the coffee but you’ll love the ambience.

Overpriced coffee shop with poor quality product and a staff. This shop takes total advantage of tourists. They give you about half a cup of coffee and the staff are rude if you question anything. Basically treat customers as if they are a nuisance.

The place sounds nice, but go elsewhere for good coffee. We had a medium latte and a couple of scones. The latte was overpriced {it cost more than a Starbucks) and it did not taste that great. The scones were stale. I don't mind stale scones, but be warned. There are many nicer coffee places in Oceanside--go find one of them and avoid this place.

We were visiting the harbor and someone told us there was a good coffee shop there. We were a bit skeptical, but went anyway. We like our cold brew and nitro. We were totally surprised, they have some very good coffee.

Best coffee and casual breakfast. I actually considered not reviewing so the lines won't get longer. Enough said. Oh, maybe I should mention Jamaican Blue and Kona.....espresso con panna

Just go and you won't regret it
