Description

OC Weekly's Description

McClain's is a coffeehouse that resides near downtown Fullerton in an early-20th-century craftsman home that was formerly a Rock 'N Java. Though it boasts lots of cool pluses—good-lookin' baristas, live music, walls adorned with the work of local artists—the operation's heart is the large patio between the front of the building and Harbor Boulevard. A prime socializing zone, here is where small clans of people huddle around large tables under powerful space heaters and play rummy or backgammon while sipping quality Joe or smoking bogies or the occasional Sherlock Holmes pipe. Indie spots such as this one offer patrons the quality of corporate coffee with the pre-Hipstamatic ambiance of an alternative-music venue. There is a communal spirit on that porch that fosters friendly interaction between total strangers. McClain's is open till the wee hours of the morning, making it a perfect stop for revelers leaving the downtown bar area in need of a caffeine pick-me-up before work.

    Don't be stupid. Pay cash, know the rules, and don't bring your attitude. Cam McClain is both the nicest lady and the biggest bitch in the world.

    Terrible customer service. Their profile on yelp has turned into a giant story telling fest of who's been more harassed or treated terribly for no significant reason by the owner. Good chai tea though

    Crema is a good place to take a balmy window seat and nurse a newspaper, while you enjoy omelets and crepes filling enough for a man but tasty enough for gourmands.
