This month, our highlight for Irvine’s best coffee shop is falling on… Portola Coffee Roasters! Located inside the Union Market at The District in Tustin, you can find an industrial décor inside. There’s also a great outside patio area which is phenomenal for people watching.
Portola comes with a coterie of specialty coffee drinks that will make your day. And if that ain’t enough, they serve up a variety of pastries from Cake Monkey Bakery as well as delicious macaroons from Kayla’s Cakes. We sampled a few and, wow! It’s like a sugar explosion inside your mouth!
Their backstory is as compelling as their coffee. The owner (or is that RoastMaster?) Jeff Dugan traveled to Africa, South America and Central America in search of that perfect cup of coffee. Ultimately, Jeff brought back a variety of perfect cups that he roasts and brews to perfection here in Irvine. He still travels to these remote and exotic places as his search for that next perfect cup continues!
May the Fourth be with you!
How does an iced coffee sound? Because they look amazing!
We’re hoping everyone has some amazing Easter Sunday plans this weekend. We wanted to share that our store hours in Santa Ana and Mission Viejo will be altered a bit, see below: Santa Ana from 8am – 3pm Mission Viejo from 7am – 3pm Orange, Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach will have normal business hours.
They’re not just about coffee!

So what’s keeping you? Head out there and tell ‘em we sent you. They’ve got no idea who we are – we just like being talked about!
