Great hidden gem in a wonderful town. The Acai Bowls by Harvest Brazil (located inside the coffee shop) are incredible. Fresh fruit, tasty acai and wonderful toppings. Hands down the best we found in Southern Cali.

Went in pretty early and ordered coffee and a couple breakfast sandwiches (on bagels). Everything was great. Quick service since they were not busy. Nice place for coffee and a small breakfast!
