A Guide to Seal Beach Coffee Shops
Bogart’s Coffee House
Near and dear to the heart of town, Bogart’s is a locally beloved hallmark among Seal Beach coffee shops, given its warmly familiar ambiance, sea blue walls, comfy leopard-print armchairs, art pieces, touches of greenery, remote work accommodations, live music performances, and unmatched views of the Pacific Ocean. The soul-stirring decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages, house-made pastries, crepes, and Hawaiian shave ice perfect for sunny summer days.
Humblemaker Coffee Co.
Down the road from the pier, Humblemaker offers guests an aesthetically gifted atmosphere underscored by warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white walls, chic furnishings, vibrant rugs, windows that let the sunshine pour on through, and the tantalizing aroma of gourmet java diligently roasted in-house. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this adorable abode with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, and solo study sessions.
Humblemaker ‘s mission is not just to create craft premium coffee, but to shape an incredible future for children living with autism; they do this by donating 10% of annual profits to enriching the lives of children living with autism via experiences such as surfing, music, and the great outdoors.
If you truly love and appreciate the art of java, search no further than Javatinis, which has been a center for coffee culture in Seal Beach for over a decade and is passionate about intentionally micro-roasting the world’s finest beans on-site. In addition to delectable drinks graced with gram-worthy latte art, the menu boasts premium Italian gelato, scrumptious pastries (vegan and gluten-free options available), and breakfast sandwiches.
The Crema Cafe
Snuggled amongst the storefronts lining Main St, The Crema Cafe provides patrons a relaxed yet refined, European-inspired culinary experience accentuated by gram-worthy brunch fare ranging from egg scrambles and omelets to heavenly pancakes and waffles to savory and sweet crepes. Whether you’d like to settle into a cozy corner and appreciate the company of loved ones over a steamy mug of joe, dine al fresco on the tranquil patio with your furry four-legged companion, or stop in for a high-quality pick-me-up on the way to the office, whatever the case may be, The Crema Cafe has got you covered.
What this walk-up, hidden gem among Seal Beach coffee shops may lack in size, it more than makes up for with wholesome hospitality, proximity to the historic Seal Beach pier, refreshing smoothies and Acai bowls, tasty bubble teas, and last but certainly not least, exceptional java. Marina Cafe is the perfect addition to any beach day!
Peet’s maintains a reliable work and gathering environment that features tables to sit down at and stay awhile, there’s also a lovely sidewalk terrace shaded by umbrellas. The founder, Alfred Peet, wasn’t trying to start a coffee revolution when he set up shop in Berkeley back in 1966. He just thought Americans deserved a real cup of coffee.
Five decades later, his lone store has since blossomed into 200, each holding true to his vision: sourcing directly from the world’s finest estates, hand roasting to order in small batches, and making sure every cup is brewed as fresh and full-flavored as possible.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
After enjoying outstanding coffee throughout Europe, Herb and Mona Hyman decided to bring the specialty coffeehouse concept back to America. That being said, the brand was established in 1963, opening its first store – which continues to operate to this day – in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Since then, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has grown to over 1,000 stores worldwide.
