Lucy’s Coffee on Laurel lane in San Luis Obispo is a local charm with a sense of character that makes it feel like home. The cute retro themed decor and clean interior create an atmosphere perfect for studying or meeting up with a friend for a coffee date to chat.
The inspiration behind the shop’s name is owner Lisa’s daughter, Lucy. Lisa’s original enterprise was a coffee truck which traveled up and down the Central Coast and catered caffeine to special events such as weddings, which has now grown to be a full time standstill coffee shop.
Lucy’s roasts the beans of local companies such as Spearhead coffee and Coastal Peaks. They feature unique specialty drinks including the savory peanut butter latte and my personal favorite: the heart warming ginger tea latte.
Their staff is extremely friendly and willing to offer recommendations for drinks with their house-made syrups, all of which taste divine. I’ve also heard their toasts are extremely yummy (including a gluten free bread option! YAY!) Choices include peanut butter banana, avocado, and goat cheese. Mmmm.
Lucy’s offers free wifi for customers and an ample number of power outlets to charge a laptop or other electronic device as well as a huge parking lot with enough parking to accommodate you and all of your best coffee loving friends.
They’re open weekdays 6:30am-6pm, and weekends 7am-4pm in shop as well as for event catering at 1279 Laurel Lane in San Luis Obispo.
