“coffee oasis at the waters edge”
The Coffee Importers of Dana Point has been owned and operated by the Miller family since 1979. It was conceived as a harbor side-outdoor coffeehouse and cafe with the ambiance of Europe by Bob and Bea. Miller and currently their son Jim carries on this great tradition.Inspired by the coffee houses and alfresco cafes they enjoyed while vacationing in Europe, Bob and Bea Miller came home with a dream to create a European Cafe stateside. Their vision convinced their son, Jim and his wife, Michelle, to go in with them on the purchase of a small Coffee Store Called "Coffee Importers".In 1979, the "Millers", Bob and Bea and Jim and Michelle became the proud owners of a small coffee shop in Dana Point Harbor. Outside seating was an important piece of Bob and Bea's dream so they bought four wooden tables and twelve chairs and off to the races they went.In 1981, the Millers purchased the business across the stairway and opened the now famous Scoop Deck Ice Cream Shop. The business grew so fast that Jim had to quit his corporate restaurant job and move his family to Dana Point in late 1982. By 1985, the Coffee Importers had 35 tables and 120 chairs. Doris and Jim MillerThe business has seen a lot of changes since 1979. In 1995, the Millers closed the original Coffee Importer and started the now popular Bagel shop and Juice Bar.
