“Eclectic cafe for owl-lovers”
Review of The Night Owl

The Night Owl
Ranked #5 of 10 Coffee & Tea in Fullerton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 September 2017

Corner cafe in the heart of Downtown Fullerton. I had driven past it several times because it is located at a busy intersection but I finally stopped by to grab tea with a friend. There is ample free parking around the area with an entrance to the cafe in the front and back. The front of the cafe has several sofas and small tables with seats available. Desserts are on display in a glass case by the register. There are coffees and an assortment of teas available - I went for an iced tea. There are some benches lining the wall towards the back with a very small stage displaying some artwork. Bathrooms are available and the hallway continues to the back to the back door that goes out to a back patio with more tables/seats that have umbrellas. Seems like they hold events back there because as we were leaving, they were setting up for a small band. The name is fitting for the space as there are many owl statues, statuettes, artwork, etc. scattered throughout the space. It is really cute and I would like to go back to do extensive reading as it had a nice vibe playing mellow jazz music lightly in the background.

The coffee, and other drinks are great as well as their treats. Local musicians offer their talents here! Great ambiance!

This is a cozy little coffee house at the corner of Harbor Blvd. and Amerige. The staff is very friendly. They have good coffee and baked goods. I have always sat on the patio in the back. This is a great place to meet friends for a morning coffee and a stroll to the Fullerton Museum to see the latest exhibit. It has a real small town feel to it.

I like the Night Owl, but I struggle with going back because of the higher prices and the line to the cashier is very akward for more than a couple people- you are either crowded in a line down the hallway or stuck in the middle of the people sitting down in chairs/couches. They do have live music and it is always crowded, but I'd rather spend the money at Layer, or I'm afraid to say...Starbucks.
