Pannikan Coffee and Tea is located at 510 N Coast Hwy 101. This café is located in a bright, yellow house with a red brick roof. The building was previously the Santa Fe Railroad Station and was constructed in 1888, which makes the café a historic site.

When you step inside, you are greeted by a case filled with some mouthwatering pastries. A personal favorite is the Cookie Dough Coffee Cake, which could only be described as heavenly. You also can’t go wrong with one of their muffins. There are a variety of flavors, however, if you are feeling healthy, the café offers a bran muffin with fresh fruit inside. 

The local eatery also has an abundant variety of coffees and teas. Step inside and you are instantly hit with an aroma of the freshly brewed coffee. Their coffee and tea is sourced from different locations all around the world.

Pannikan continues to be a local favorite - a tradition that began in 1968 and has continued to be a family owned and operated business ever since.
