A San Francisco institution, Java Beach Café has been serving homemade & locally sourced eats for decades. All of our coffee is freshly roasted by our team in the San Francisco Bay Area & brought right to our cafés so that we can serve you the perfect cup every single morning. 

We are located in the Outer Sunset, right across the Great Highway from Ocean Beach. We are easily accessible by car, public transit, or surfboard.

“Neighborhood people serving the community since 1993”

Java Beach started with one simple question: Why should neighbors have to take a road trip out of the neighborhood for a decent cup of coffee? The foundation of Java Beach has always been a commitment to serving superb coffee. All our coffee is locally roasted and it is all organic, sustainable and fair trade. We look forward to drinking our coffee everyday ourselves!

Forever a work in progress, Java Beach is the love and life work of Patrick and Buffy Maguire. Java Beach is more than a coffee shop; it is a second home to many and a friend’s living room to others. Many relationships and marriages began at Java Beach and now the second generation of Java Beach customers are tall enough to order their own drinks and, sometimes, old enough to pay for them!

Java Beach has evolved over the years, but the spirit of hope and possibility that manifested itself on that fateful day in October remains with us and is part of the magic down here at the edge of the world where we perch on the Pacific Ocean.

In short, Java Beach was started with a briefcase of nothing but chutzpah and 22 years later it has become the embodiment of “be bold and great forces will come to your aid.”

Live your dreams.
