Indie Coffee

Known for their gourmet and specialty coffee, Laguna Coffee Co. has become the coffee connoisseur’s heaven on earth. They use only the best beans that are selected from all over the world, and the beans are slow-roasted right in the store! I asked for a one of their most popular and raved about blends, the Black Pearl. It was phenomenal! A dark blend that had a deep flavor you could taste until the last drop. I chose to pull up a seat outside in the alley-like patio. It had that European café feel but with the cool ocean breeze to keep me company. For those that want to brew their own cup of Laguna Coffee Co., they sell bags of beans you can purchase for use at home.  Every Saturday morning 10am to 1pm you can enjoy LIVE jazz while you have your cup of Joe. And in true Laguna Beach fashion, the café highlights a different local artist’s work that is available for purchase. Come to Laguna Coffee Co. for that hand-roasted coffee that you are craving!

Open Monday-Friday 5am-5pm
Saturday 6:30am-5pm
Sunday 7am-3pm

As you are walking into Koffee Klatch, you are transported into some other world. You may spot a treasure any where you look……purple and jewel-toned tapestries, leather stools nestled among potted plants, amber chandeliers reflecting light, tables and chairs tucked away in a quiet corner. It makes for a great, bohemian hideaway. Outside, they offer patio seating where you can access  Wi-Fi . And every night they play free movies at sunset. The coffee is great.  I ordered the Mayan Mocha, served hot, with lots of whip, and it was like a vacation for my mouth. Smooth and sweet with a touch of cinnamon that tickled my taste buds into a frenzy of delight. Koffee Klatch has a nice selection of teas, sweet treats, breakfast and lunch choices, and everything can be prepared to go! Stop by to experience a bit of their bohemian flare.

Open Sunday-Thursday 7am to 11pm
Friday and Saturday 7am to 1am

If you’re not already familiar with where Coffee Pub is located, it is hidden away on Forest Avenue next to the Post Office. I love that Coffee Pub feels like a hidden-locals-only-know-where-it-is kind of place. When you walk in, the café opens up to a spacious seating area and back patio.  I decided to order the White Mocha, trying to quench my NEVER satisfied sweet tooth. I fell in love with this creamy, sweet delight and will be returning to have it again. Coffee Pub also has quite a selection of food, including frozen yogurt, smoothies, sandwiches, salads, garden burgers and soup. If you’re going to be meeting up with some friends for some downtown shopping, the Coffee Pub is the perfect spot to grab a snack and a cub of Joe to give you some fuel for your shopping adventures.
