Fuel Your Caffeine Dreams On This Southern California Coastal Coffee Trail
By Natasha Kayes|Published June 16, 2023
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and will never tire of the West Coast, although I spent several years living in Southeast Asia, about as far from California as you can get. Wherever I am in the world, I love straying from the beaten path, experiencing local life, and discovering hidden gems - camera in hand. The beach is my happy place and when I am not there (or writing), you will usually find me baking, watching movies, and cuddling my pugs. I have traveled around the country and around the world, and it never, ever gets old. Being able to combine my passion for travel and my love of writing is nothing short of a dream.
Coffee has become far more than just a warm drink. It is a morning ritual for people like me, an afternoon pick-me-up at work, a conversation topic, a passion, and a reason to get together. In fact, “let’s get coffee sometime” doesn’t even have to involve coffee – that’s how important and symbolic this caffeinated wonder has become. Coffee culture is a real thing and at least one Southern California has become a serious coffee destination. Coffee houses in Oceanside, CA, are found on nearly every block, from laid-back neighborhood hangouts to trendy and creative, and everything in between.
Whew! That is a lot of coffee! It’s a good thing these awesome coffee houses in Oceanside have so many other amazing things to try. Are you ready to eat and drink your way up the coast on this caffeine trail? Let us know which of these coffee shops you would love to visit, or which ones you have already tried! If you would like to make an entire weekend of it, we have just the place to stay in this lovely beach town.
