It's at a great intersection...THE main one on town. Parking is easy behind. Had comfy leather chairs, never crowded and never noisy. Wi-Fi is often flaky.

I'm hesitant to complain about bad Italian-style coffee in the USA, but this place asked for it via a "Hand Tamped Espresso" sign visible from the street. The implication was that a) they know what they're doing b) they're interested in customers who can taste the difference. Sadly, they failed on a...miserably. We asked for a real, ceramic cup rather... More

We love stopping here in the morning after our run, their coffee is really good. I'm a café latte fan. We also like their outdoor seating right on Linden Street. Has a very community/local vibe.

Service is great. My favorite is Chi Tea. I like that you can sit outside. Carpinteria is such a cute beach town.

I recently got an ice blended mocha here and sat outside in the sunshine just relaxing. The drink was very good - by the last quarter of a cup it didn't end up as a load of separated ice and weird-tasting coffee leftovers like the Starbucks equivalent often does. The staff were very smiley and friendly.
