In America I really struggle to find good coffee as most is just black brewed coffee. In Australia where I am living there coffee is great, where true coffee machines are used to create a beautiful tasting coffee. I am also a certified barista in Australia so I now what is a good coffee and what is not. Hidden House... More

This is our go to place. When we have company in the area we make sure we bring them here for coffee and pastries. This is also our planned break stop during our bike rides.

Hidden House roasts their own select coffee beans and bakes their own pastries. The service is always friendly and the coffee, scones, and almond croissants are fantastic! All this in a lovely cottage setting. If the little tables outside are all full, there's always the park next door.

I have had a latte here several times. I love to sit on the porch and chat over a latte, watch the mom's with their kids, and shoppers on Los Rios Street. Great location. Great latte.

Ambiance is perfect at this tiny little spot across the tracks in down town San Juan Capistrano. The great coffee is an added bonus. An absolute must-visit to round out your day in San Juan.

As a resident of San Juan Capistrano, this is my favorite coffee shop. The coffee and snacks are delicious and the staff is warm and welcoming. My grandchildren love the designs on top of their hot chocolate. I love to sit on their front porch sipping coffee or iced tea and watch the world go by. They are located on... More

As you cross the railroad tracks at the San Juan Capistrano train station, you pass through a noticeable "time-warp". Everything the eyes see dates back 100+ years, each building is on the Historical Registry. Yes, beneath the trees and heavy vegetation, lies a jewel unmatched in SoCal, a "Hidden Coffee House". This coffee house offers a combination of a remarkable... More

When visiting San Juan Capistrano, Hidden House Coffee is a great place to relax. It's a quaint old building with many outdoor tables, right on Los Rios Street (the oldest in CA). My favorite is a latte and maybe a little treat to go along with it. It's a short walk from the train station and nestled among other old... More

I don't drink coffee and I love this place. Their mocha coffee is fantastic. Their baked goods are out of this world! I really can't think of anything that tastes better than their almond croissant. When they say it's the best in the world... that's the truth.
