What keeps you motivated during the week? For me it’s that one coffee date I set up mid week with a friend or a family member. Yes I know we all love Starbucks and are probably there everyday picking up our mobile orders, however once in a while I love to explore and experience a different and unique coffee shop near me. Sometimes i just want to sip on my coffee or take a bite of something sweet to give me the feeling of being somewhere away from reality. So today I am going to share with you my top two cafe’s.
My Top Two Coffee Shops Near By In Orange County :
- Euro Caffe
Let me start by saying how impressed I was with Euro caffe on my first visit there. I remember craving a matcha latte and a sweet dessert. I had found this place on yelp and decided as the explorer that I am to give this place a try. I visited the Santa Ana location which is near South Coast Plaza. This caffe is small and cute but make sure to arrive during a non rush hour time cause it can get super busy.
What To know About Euro Caffe :
- They are known for their famous crepes which are made by hand, to order
- Their coffee is made by beans from around the world
- Their goal is to bring you a taste of Europe, and i have to say they truly do
- They have seasonal special items
- They were 3 times nominee “Best Coffee” in OC weekly
- Home of the original Nutella latte
- They provide full line of catering
Euro Cafe Menu:
Their drink menu includes a variety of lattes, signature expressos, signature lattes, espresso drinks, non-espresso drinks, teas, frappes, and frescos. Their food menu also includes a variety of sweet and savory waffles, crepes, paninis, pizzas, sandwiches, and much more.
You can eat breakfast for dinner if you wanted to at euro caffe. I remember ordering a matcha latte, big ben waffle, and the crepe gatsby for dinner that night i visited the euro caffe ( side note: how cute are the names of their menu items!) . I was so impressed with their plate presentation, everything looked freshly done and delicious . Their waffle was freshly made and nicely crips on the outside and soft on the inside. the crepe was soft and tasty made like a real European crepe.
Euro Caffe Locations:
- Santa ana
- Huntington Beach
- Aliso Viejo ( Opening soon summer 2019)
So if you looking to get a taste of europe without having to fly far far away this is the place you want to visit with your friends and family members.
I remember the first time I walked into Moulin, I literally felt like I was in France. The french waiters, baristas and hosts were speaking loudly in french and the beautiful accent that circulated the cafe just took me to a different place. It was like being in Europe. If you are looking for a cute coffee shop for a latte and pastries this is your spot! I also highly recommend their brunch/breakfast experience. They have a nice patio area with outdoor seating and also some small tables inside. they have a little bakery if you want to grab something there or to go. the restaurant/cafe is full of amazing goodies! I have so many recommendations and here they are!

I especially love their raisin pastry, It is so delicious and moist. Great for morning pastry with coffee, or even an afternoon delight!
