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

Does it have the best coffee or atmosphere? No. But it's a timeless place to hangout in Santa Cruz. Verve, up the street, is way better, but this place is great since Verve closes at 8pm most nights.

A hit all around. The staff helped me pick a perfect cup of coffee and then brewed it to perfection. Why anyone would go elsewhere is beyond me!
