Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters | Great Coffee in Cannon Beach
Review by: Indi Aufranc
If you’ve ever been to Cannon Beach, Oregon, you hardly need me to tell you to visit Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters. Its reputation precedes it. The constant line out the door tells it all: people are willing to wait for as long as it takes to try the coffee house’s offerings.
The tiny inside of the coffee house bustles with the nonstop flow of people and orders. Despite this chaos, the warm wood interior is inviting, and the iconic font of the logo spells out the espresso and specialty drinks on the menu. Amazingly, the baristas and servers are constantly full of energy, chatting away with each customer who comes to the register.
The signature espresso blend in their lattes is strong, aromatic, and inviting. It’s bold, rich, and sure to kickstart your morning. This coffee is what draws lines down the block, and what continues to grow Sleepy Monk’s popularity in Cannon Beach and beyond. Their coffee is available to buy wholesale both in store and online. If you’re feeling particularly inspired, you can buy shirts and coffee mugs in store as well!
To complement the coffee, pastries are baked fresh daily and sell quickly. The cookies are the size of dinner plates– definitely best to share with a friend. The orange chocolate chip scones are a must-order. Soft and fluffy, they almost border on the texture of a muffin. The sugar-encrusted outside clings to your fingertips, and the gooey chocolate chips accompany the orange flavor in a decadent partnership.
Sleepy Monk is a place for coffee lovers and beachgoers alike. The sense of community at the coffee house is tangible. Colorful seats adorn the outside of the store, and people chat among themselves with coffees in hand. Tourists and locals are drawn again and again into Sleepy Monk’s quaint doors, hooked on their excellent coffee, tasty pastries, and welcoming ambiance. It’s truly special to find a coffee house that is not only loved, but revered by loyal customers. A detour to the Oregon coast, if only for a day trip, is worth it just to experience Sleepy Monk.
