We ate breakfast there every day. The atmosphere, the help were great. The food was great although not a coffee drinker did have a delicious cup of tea and Hot Chocolate. My wife latte was delicious as were our breakfast.

Believe this is a part of Monterey Plaza Hotel, and offers coffee, pastries, yoghurt, some pre-made sandwiches, etc. While staying in the hotel my wife went for takeout coffee, and brought to the room. Absolutely the worst Americano I ever tasted. Avoid. The Macchiato was OK.

First of all, the staff is amazing. They are so friendly and welcoming! Walking in definitely makes the day start off so well!

Since I travel a lot and usually for business I find eating at the same chain restaurants gets old. Café La Strada is not a chain and it is delightful and different. The staff is very friendly.

Coffee perfection! Nice way to start the day today. Ordered a cappuccino and a latte. Sat outside sipping our coffee looking at the ocean. Staff was pleasant. Coffee was delicious and the perfect temperature. So much better than Starbucks!

Sorry. Don't understand other reviews. Went for coffee/breakfast. They fave perfected the art of selling a large cup of foam under the name cappuccino. Fruit at least a few days old. Grapes fermenting. Tables dirty. There are plenty of other places to go. Why bother?

We purchased and enjoyed our morning coffee here. They had a unique and excellent choice in pastries and breakfast selections. The Nutella filled pastry was excellent. Service was fast, it was a convenient location to the hotel.
