The coffee is great. The service however is something to be desired. This morning I waited 10 minutes for a coffee. It was very clear that they were understaffed. With only two staff working they could not efficiently manage the food and drink orders. I really hope things turn around and there are improvements and an effective management strategy is... More

The staff are helpful and very friendly. The coffee is great. They make some mixed lattes, etc. and they are pretty good - even have sugar free options, but they don't have low-carb milk (or they didn't during summer 2016). There's a little gift shop inside and a patio to sit on but it gets really hot, as it's in... More

A bit pricey! Most customers were siting outside. I liked the Hawaiian decor inside. Lots of different coffee drinks offered. Coffee was full-bodied and good!!

Tried other locations while in... More

This place is a joke. I am a local and my family and friends went in one morning and we could NOT believe what we saw. First, the owner (Ken Lawson) is the biggest jerk! He must have thought it was OK to flirt and make inappropriate comments to my friend. She was appalled. He was rude to other customers... More

We've heard and saw the reviews for this coffee house, so we had to make a stop. They rushed on my wife's mocha and it was cold and tasted like water. My house coffee tasted just like our hotel's coffee. Don't expect a wow.

Great selection of coffee. Breakfast sandwiches and bagels etc. The mudslide cold is to die for. The interior is very cute and the service is excellent.

I love this place! I've been going every time we are on vacation and then after w removed here. Coffee is tasty with lots of different flavored and really yummy smoothies. What a fun, relaxed laid back surf vibe. Great Service. Every time.
