ZEBRA HOUSE COFFeE opened its doors in mid-2011. San Clemente locals, Jay and Robin McIlwee, dreamed up the idea of a coffee shop many years before in a trip to Nicaragua. It was there that they discovered their interest in great quality coffee. When the location on El Camino Real became available, Robin and Jay jumped on it, offering San Clemente’s only drive-through coffee shop. They brought the place to life with cozy furniture, bright colors, house-made breakfast and lunch items, and wonderful coffee. In mid-2016, Robin and Jay partnered with family friends, Sara and Curtis Peterson, who are now operating the coffee shop. Sara and Curtis’ family has been in the coffee business for many years and in fact are now roasting ZEBRA HOUSE brand coffee fresh for customers every week.

When you come to ZEBRA HOUSE, you can count on three things always: our love of great coffee, an inviting atmosphere and true appreciation of our amazing customers. We love getting to know every person that comes through our doors and we make sure that we make their day a little brighter.

In the end, the ultimate goal is to deliver memorable service and top notch coffee. From our family to yours.
