On the corner of Hollister is a welcoming row of teal umbrellas.
Turn left and see a spacious, modern coffee shop called Dean Coffee Shop. Dean is relatively new to the Goleta community, opening in August of 2020. It is a perfect spot to grab a coffee, relax, or study and have plenty of room to think.
The shop offers a variety of coffees and teas, as well as toasts and pastries. Near the entrance of the shop, a customer can also find quite a few food and drink options, like kombucha and salads, in a nifty retro refrigerator.
The expressos have just enough kick to keep you focused, if your goal is to get work done at the shop. While the smashed bean sourdough toast may look a little smaller at first glance, the bite is filling and delicious.
The atmosphere is friendly and productive, a great get-away from a busy work-from-home setting.
If you’re looking for somewhere new and hope to see a fresh modern shop in an old, tasteful town, then Dean Coffee Shop is the place! For more information, visit their website for hours, photos, menus, and reviews!
