This coffee roastery has good coffee, but the baristas who served us know nothing about how to make a cappuccino. Truly bad, and not worth sending back for a second try because the sweet young things working that morning did not have a clue.

Stopped by for a mid-afternoon tea and decaf at their location in Pacific Grove (surprised TripAdvisor doesn't show this location). My tea was prepared with loose tea, which the waitress turned into a tea bag. The tea was fragrant and had a good taste. My wife had de-caf, which was full-bodied and came available with her preferred whole milk instead... More

In a courtyard south off Ocean is a nice array of outside tables and inside is another area. Service is friendly and helpful, and the selection is good. The bakery offerings to complement the drinks is very good also. Being out of the crowd lets you relax with a good drink while you drink in Carmel.

I'm always up early so, while on vacation, I get up and out of the room so I don't wake the wife up and I'm out walking the area. I found this coffee shop on my first morning out and it opens at 0600 which fits right into my schedule. I had coffee and an apricot scone. Both were very... More

Coffee, cakes and service were great. We had coffee there each morning and one for the road when we drove to Santa Barbara

As many times as I have been to Pacific Grove, I have never tried the Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting. I had a very good cup there and now I want to go back for more!

They have nice blends. Get the Carmel Foglifter for example. Am a local, go here and buy their coffee often, plus other locations. Boycott corporate coffee available elsewhere at no better or worse than local coffee prices, and get it fresher here.

We stopped in for coffee as we were exploring Carmel. What we found was not only multiple choices for what kind of coffee we wanted but we had so many choices from around the world. If you love coffee stop in. It's on Ocean Ave. on the way to the lovely beach.So much to see, so much to do, one... More
