Sanctuary for late nighters

Mellow lighting, comfy couches, artwork and the smell of coffee. All things that can be found inside one of Fullerton’s most unique coffeehouses.

Located within walking distance of Fullerton College, McClain’s Coffeehouse is the perfect location for students to study late into the night or simply relax and hang out with friends.

A large outdoor patio accentuated by strings of lights, heaters and plenty of seating is the perfect place to play cards, chess and variety’s of other games provided by the house. The patio is also equipped with outlets for any student looking into getting some work done while enjoying a nice Fullerton evening.

If customers need a place that feels a little bit more like home, then the inside of McClain’s hits the spot. Big plush chairs and couches fill up the indoor space giving it a living room type feel. There are a lot of tables around to hold drinks, snacks and anything else that one might have.

The mellow lighting gives off the comfort of home and the soothing low music in the background is perfect for studying until its 3 a.m. closing time.

Aligning the walls are custom pieces of art work on pieces of broken skateboards, scrap wood and even a guitar, each piece different from the next and is also available for purchase if one were to catch someones eye.

A coffeehouse would not be complete without having an array of different beverages to choose from. Coffee lovers will enjoy all the different sections from espressos to cappuccinos to regular coffee. There is also a nice selection for those non-coffee drinks out there including green tea, hot chocolate, smoothies and sodas to name a few.

For those who get hunger attacks, especially during those late night study sessions, they offer a great menu. Everything from breakfast to sandwiches to salads and desserts are available. After all, who doesn’t love a cookie or biscotti with their coffee?

The prices are reasonable to chain coffee shops, but be aware that they only take cash. An ATM is located inside for those who need it. The staff is nice, welcoming with a smile and are prompt with orders.

So for any student that needs a good study spot equipped with the essentials of coffee and food, or for any customers that wants to hang out with friends, McClain’s coffeehouse is there waiting.

McClain’s Coffeehouse is located at 817 N. Harbor Blvd and is open 8-3 a.m. Monday through Friday and 9-3 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
