A family owned coffee shop in San Luis Obispo continues to serve the Central Coast community during the coronavirus pandemic.
Nautical Bean has two locations in San Luis Obispo, and the owner, Brett Jones, said the worst part of the pandemic, along with the limited staff, is the lack of community that they value so much.
"These local people become our family, that we see everyday. I always encourage my staff to, if we're not busy, go sit down with them. Talk with them, build these relationships, because that's what it's all about in the end. Anyone can make a cup of coffee, but you have to have a place to go and a sense of community," said Jones.
The coffee shop and café is still offering their full menu, serving breakfast, lunch, fresh pastries and their many coffee options.
Nautical Bean is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
One coffee shop is located at 11560 Los Osos Valley Road, San Luis Obispo. The other is located at 2010 Parker Street, San Luis Obispo.
