Day 1- Being Out is In
Grab a coffee and a pastry from Philz Coffee
Visit Philz Coffee at Pacific City and have your cup of coffee created just for you by your own personal barista. Phil Jaber went on a quest 25 years ago to make a really great cup of coffee. He wanted to create a blend that was flavorful, complex, rich, smooth, and low in acidity. His quest took him all over the world and after visiting thousands of coffee shops, Phil created over 30 unique blends. Phil wanted to make sure the coffee-making process embodied a personal and social feel, so he designed his own coffee station allowing for every cup to be crafted one cup at a time. By personalizing each cup, Phil had found a way to allow for individuality in every cup of love.
Start your vacation the right way with a relaxing day outside at one of Huntington Beach Resort Pools: The Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa, and Paséa Hotel & Spa.
