Yes this place is a must stop - they make their own power bars with peanut butter and chocolate. Also cranberries and peanut butter - I couldn't decide so I got both - ultra yummy. Best coffee and scones too. Everything you would want in a cool coffee place - strong wifi, and couches, clean and comfortable. Love the owner,... More

Just a few minutes down the road off Highway 1, we stopped at Here Comes the Sun for a something to drink and eat before getting on the road. I really liked... More

This coffee house is a bright spot on the road while traveling Highway 1. It is small, cozy, and full of personality and charm. The service is effusively positive, and your drink will be made to your satisfaction. A comfortable side room has lots of books and comfy couches and chairs. I encourage you to stop and enjoy this non-big... More

We have been here twice now and we love it! It's got a lot of great coffee options plus awesome crossiants and snacks. If you have kids, they have some games to play inside which was a hit!

When touring the Halfmoon Bay southwest of San Francisco make sure to stop at this very nice place with friendly staff, free WiFi, and excellent coffee. They also serve light fare...and very reasonable prices!

I don't remember if they are open in the evenings, but they open very early in the am to serve their customers grabbing coffee, breakfast and packed lunches on their way to work. The food is very good, and the menu eclectic. The staff is very friendly.

find this place!! Next to a boat yard- just down the street from the harvesting point. Best oysters in the Reyes area- or the world as far as I am concerned!! Buttery- not chewy. Sweet- not fishy.

We first visited this amazing little coffee house when it (re)opened a few years ago under the current owner, a young local girl recently back home after graduating from college. Back then it was a really comfortable place to go hang out and drink a yummy latte while relaxing with a good book or catching up with neighbors while listening... More
