    SLO's best kept hidden gem! Exceptional and very knowledgeable staff. With a peacefully shaded terrace in the back to enjoy your coffee.

    Get the Espresso Eggs if you need a quick delicious breakfast bullet to the stomach. They get their name from previously being made on the espresso machine.

    This is one of the first places we played at. We love the staff and the atmosphere, especially the back patio. Fantastic live music makes Linnaea's more than your average cup of Joe.

    Avoid the Peet's this one time and try this neighborhood gem. Great garden and low-key vibe. Expect bleary-eyed co-eds studying, 60s tunes and home baked food. Nice place.

    Must spend at least $5 to pay with a card. Bring cash if you only want one drink!
