Huntington Beach Coffee and Starbucks

 

If you think Huntington Beach'ians (residents of Huntington Beach) aren't hooked on coffee, just drive along most major streets and report back how many Starbucks are there. Within several years Starbucks coffee has expanded its offerings to dozens of stand alone stores and grocery store kiosks. You'll seldom drive far before spotting that green logo.

 

Coffee drinks have taken the nation by storm, and that applies to Huntington Beach as well.  The year round warm climate makes for great frozen blends and even tasty fruit drinks now offered as healthy choices. 

In addition to Starbucks, there are a few alternate coffee shops for those who refuse to shop at Starbucks (several of our friends are that way.) We've tried Diedrichs and Pete's Coffee, and haven't been impressed, sorry to say. But our friends think Pete's or any other offering has to be better than Starbucks (it's clearly a matter of opinion.) One easy drive-through Starbucks is located on Pacific Coast Highway at Peter's Landing. It's fantastic, because you never have to get out of your car to get your coffee on the run. 

 

When visiting Huntington Beach, you'll find a Starbuck near the Huntington Beach Pier on Main and Olive. But right around the corner, No Ka Oi sells a rich Hawaiian blend you may want to try or take home as a souvenir.  Also downtown is a surfboard java style shop called Java Jungle on the corner of PCH & 5th St., and another coffee kiosk in the Huntington Surf and Sport Store. There you can sit among the surfboard displays and drink your brew or blend.
