This establishment serves and sells some coffee, but it is mainly a cafeteria-style/take-out restaurant. There is a large menu featuring breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, soups, wraps, bagels, and more. I had the harvest vegetable panini. It was delicious. Waiting time is reasonable. There is a...More

I love their sandwiches, their salads and their smoothies. This place has doubled in size since I was last there. There is a reason! An excellent place for a healthy lunch!

I visited this place three times while in Dana Point and was pleased with each item I ordered. Pat's bagel (toasted, buttered bagel with tomato, avocado, and lemon pepper) was great. Once I ordered it with egg (don't do that, it's too big) and another...More

Our local spot on our walk. Great location, friendly staff and really top class coffee. Tends to get short on table space so you may need to hang out, find your table before you order.

Great view and location in the harbor, but bad bagels. Clearly not fresh. Hard and tasteless. If you're looking for bagels, go to the Bagel Shack. Otherwise, stick go with other breakfast options here.

Snuggled up next to the boats at Dana Point Harbor is The Coffee Importers. With unbelievably good food, and equally delicious view, this restaurant is a not-to-be-missed when in Dana Point. Every time I go, I get the Harvest Vegetable Panini. Pure bliss of a...More
