This roadside café, coffeehouse, and nursery (yes, nursery - the plant kind, that is) constitutes a rather dark wooden hut that you might miss if you drive down Highway 1 too quickly out of Half Moon Bay. There's a parking lot with a main entrance to the rear of the building. Inside, it has a typical rural café feel. It feels a little like a family-run place, but a little better than that. They serve baked goods, breakfast items (eggs, burritos, weekend waffles), and other light dining fare. There are several indoor metal-topped café tables - and some worn wooden picnic bench seating in the rear outdoors. Using a three-group Conti machine in the service area, and Moschetti coffee (they make their service area presence known in HMB), they pull shots with a pale to medium brown mottled crema served short in a shotglass-sized cup (Romania ceramic from IKEA). It has a healthy body and a smoothed-out flavor of mild spices. For milk-frothing, they can be a bit irregular and frothy - but they will ask if you want your cappuccino wet or dry. Their milk-based drinks are deceptively large-looking and come in white or blue IKEA cups. One of the better coffee options in this outpost town.
