If you’re looking for a 10 mile stretch of amazing beach, surfing, cafes, and unbeatable sunsets, don’t miss the jewel of Orange County — Huntington Beach. While the surf and the sun are definitely not to be missed, Huntington also has a great selection of cafes to quench your thirst and satisfy your caffeine fix.
1. Milk & Honey
Whether it’s vegan banana bread, a lavender americano, or a delicious açai bowl, Milk & Honey has artisanal coffees, teas, and delicious sandwiches. And if you need to cool down, their Wild Berry Smoothie will truly drive you wild. This hip spot is popular among locals, as it’s tucked away from the main drag of Huntington Beach. Take a mid-afternoon respite with a lavender latte and a tasty pastry from Milk & Honey.
2. Philz Cafe
Tucked into the Pacific City Mall, Philz is an adorable little cafe with a second-floor view that can’t be missed. Inventive touches like mint and cardamom make the beverage selections at Philz completely unforgettable. And the best part is it’s super close to the beach, and about a block from the Huntington Beach pier, so all you need to do is stroll across the sand for that late-afternoon pick-me-up.
3. 602 Coffee House
Last but not least, the 602 Coffee House is an amazing spot for an espresso by the sea. With excellent service, and an exceptionally creative menu, 602 is without a doubt a great spot to stop while you’re enjoying fun in the sun at Huntington Beach. Nestled one block off Main Street, the coffee shop is a great place to sit, relax, and enjoy the sights, sounds, and the scenery of the area.
Whichever caffeine canteen you find, we hope you have a splendid time in Huntington Beach. It truly is a hidden treasure in the Los Angeles area. And if you’re looking for an absolutely decadent time with (or without!) your family, don’t miss Pacific Edge’s gorgeous rental property located just blocks from the beach here.
