Explore San Carlos: Get Your Caffeine Fix

With our newest Neighborhood of luxury apartments debuting in San Carlos, we decided to get to know our new neighbors and discover the answer to one of the most important questions to consider when finding a new place to live. Who has the best coffee in San Carlos? (Bonus points for avocado toast.)

Mints & Honey

Mints & Honey is much more than your typical neighborhood café. They also double as an event space and floral design studio. Head in for a latte, and stay for a Little Chef Party. Snag some avocado toast (which is amazing, by the way) and entertain your little ones with a modern Lego party. Mints & Honey is perfect for stopping by with your family in tow. Their wide variety of treat selection will be a delight for your eyes, as well as your mouth.

Go To Chocolate                                                                                          

Alright, so we went a little outside the coffee category for this one. But considering its chocolate, we don’t think you’ll mind too much. Go To Chocolate has some of the best chocolatey delights in the bay area, a perfect companion for a hot latte. Each decadent treat is handcrafted by chocolate artisan and owner Michael Hohenthal. Our favorite is the Dark Chocolate French Gray Sea Salt Caramel. Or maybe the English Toffee. Whatever you pick, you can’t go wrong. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s a little shop you want to check out.

Papachay Peruvian Coffee

Papachay is an escape to the mountainous regions of Peru without leaving the streets of downtown San Carlos. Their coffee is shade grown on their family plantation in Peru, and imported to their roastery in San Carlos. Every step of the coffee making process is painstakingly refined at this Peruvian hideaway, resulting in a steaming cup of goodness when you place your order. Have your coffee in-store, or get your beans to go. Papachay, translated as “Greetings, friend!” will keep you coming back for more.

Plantation Coffee Roastery

This spot is a local favorite, with regulars often going behind the counter to fill up their own cup. Plantation Coffee Roastery has a diverse selection of coffee and breakfast sandwiches, offering whatever it is you need to get your morning (or afternoon) going. Bring your laptop to get some work done, and cozy down with a caramel macchiato and muffin.
