I love supporting local businesses and Norma Jean's is one of our top go-to places for coffee and the best darn lox and bagel you'll find anywhere in the county. Located in the heart of the small, charming town of Aptos, this place offers great breakfast burritos, yummy homemade carrot cake and many other wonderful comfort food choices. A really... More

You can't go wrong with this less-known place. It has excellent service, wonderful atmosphere and the best drinks around. You can walk to the beach from this Aptos Village place.

I found this coffee shop early one morning when visiting Aptos before going into Nisene Marks park. I had coffee and a coconut macaroon and found it delicious. The other baked goods, baked on site smell wonderful and are gone quickly. I'd love to see this family owed business flourish as it deserves to be frequented.

Norma Jean's is not as fast as Starbuck's; stop and catch your breath. N.J's is not offering the same thing as every other Starbuck's around the world; try something different. Right next to the Bayview Hotel, it's just sweet; what else can I say?

Coffee selections are quite tasty and I have had the chai (I like the sweet and spicy option). My husband says their kona (might be a blend) is very good. My favorite however is the oatmeal with everything. By that, they serve a beautiful bowl of oatmeal covered in berries, bananas, nuts, brown sugar... and I think even more. The... More
