There is a small strip of restaurants, cafes, shops and ice cream places attached to the Stowaway Grand Hotel. We hit three of them during a recent visit to OC. The Java Beach place I went to almost everyday. It has indoor seating with good AC and outdoor seating with a nice view of the boardwalk and ocean. There are also about a dozen rocking chairs and several tables and chairs in the entryway of the hotel, right next to Java Beach.
I would go every morning to get a few hours of work in. I would get my Caramel Macchiato and usually sit at a table in the corner of the hotel entryway. There was even an outlet for my laptop. The coffee is better at Starbucks, but this is still pretty good.
The staff were always pleasant and the drink was always done right.
One night we all went in to get smoothies. They use a mix for anything but straight banana. They were ok.
They had some pretty good looking bakery items, like the big cinnamon rolls, but I didn’t get a chance to try anything.
