Neat Coffee

If you are looking for a hip coffee shop for a cozy book read or to hang with some friends, Neat Coffee is a definite must. Located in the heart of Costa Mesa, Neat Coffee is a friendly neighborhood coffeeshop that will keep you coming back for their one-of-a-kind brewed concoctions. These concoctions aren’t always on the menu, so be sure to ask for the special drinks. Can you say Honey Cinnamon Latte?!

Owner and barista, Ally Garvin, always welcomes you with the sweetest smile and will make you feel like a good friend from the bat. If you are a frequent visitor, always carry your punchcard and get a free drink after every 10th purchase! Isn’t that neat?

Tru Bru Organic Coffee

Hidden in the Orange hills, Tru Bru Organic Coffee is home to perfectly roasted organic coffee and some of the most delightful breakfast sandwiches in OC.
Unlike most coffee shops in Orange County, this one is unique because you’ll see the occasional horse ride-by. And it’s right across the street from Santiago Canyon College, which makes it a popular place to study and get work done. Don’t forget to sit on the side closest to the windows, because that’s where you will get the best Wi-Fi signal.

Bodhi Leaf Coffee Traders

First impression of Bodhi Leaf Coffee: Lots of open space with a beautifully aged ambience and the best cinnamon almond milk latte that has ever graced this planet.
Entering Bodhi is like walking into a rustic and antique coffee roasting room. Bags and bags of coffee are displayed and roasted in front of you and sent straight to your coffee cup. Can you get any fresher than that? The beans are also sustainable and fair trade so you can help support a cause by drinking their coffee. If you are looking for a place to sprawl out and get your creative juices flowing or a quiet space to read and relax, then you’ve found your haven. With plenty of tables, natural light, and an open breeze you can get any goal accomplished in here.
