Welcome to Kays!
Locally roasted coffee, organic loose leaf tea and homemade from scratch baked goods all served in Ventura & Camarillo.
Kay's Coffee Shop is an independent, locally owned and operated coffee shop.
Proudly pairing Beacon Espresso with Straus Organic Barista Milk and brewing direct trade, single estate coffees from Beacon Coffee Company and small batch roasted, fair trade coffees from Wild Goose Coffee Roasters. Cheerfully serving homestyle, from scratch baked goods made at the Ventura location. We also feature an ever evolving selection of premium certified organic loose leaf teas.
Kay's Coffee Shop serves traditional espresso-based drinks, including cappuccinos, lattes, and mochas, as well as signature drinks like the brown sugar latte, “dirty” spicy chai latte, and coconut mocha.
Our standard milk choice is Straus Family Creamery's Barista Milk (whole, 2%, or non-fat) and we offer gluten-free oat milk for a small amount more. Almond and soy are always available at no extra charge. We also serve any espresso drink as decaf.
For the non-coffee drinkers, we offer chai lattes, golden turmeric lattes, hot chocolate, organic loose leaf teas, and hand crafted sodas.
We have a small kitchen in our Ventura shop where we lovingly bake most of the tasty treats and pastries available for purchase at either location. We make flourless and dairy free treats and offer a small selection of gluten free and vegan options.
On A Personal Note...
We opened our doors with two ideas in mind: offer people the best there is and serve it like you mean it. Our inspiration was a man named Everett “Kay” Hansen. A skilled craftsman, carpenter and machinist by profession, and an even bigger model airplane enthusiast, he believed anything worth doing should be done right.
Since 2013, we have done exactly that. We offer our customers top quality, locally roasted coffee and we proudly make most of the pastries, treats, and snacks that you find in our shops from scratch. What sets us apart from other cafes is our belief in what coffee stands for and our passion for service. To us, a coffee shop is one of the few remaining gathering places where people can commune, connect, commiserate, and maybe even solve the world's problems. In short, for us coffee equals community. When you come to our shop, you aren't a customer. You're a guest in our house and the person who just moved in down the street that we haven't gotten to know yet.
We look forward to serving you,
LaDonna & Melinda Hambrick
and the ladies of Kay's Coffee Shop

“The Shop,” as the Ventura location is affectionately known, has been serving friends, neighbors, beach goers, and travelers since October 2013. Customers are welcome to get comfortable at the few tables inside or soak up some sun on the patio. Due to limited seating capacity (and proximity to the beach) WiFi is not available.
Kay's Coffee Shop was the first coffee house in Ventura County to exclusively use Straus Organic Barista milk as standard for all of our drinks. We proudly brew coffee roasted by Ventura's own Beacon Coffee Company and Redland's Wild Goose Coffee Roasters. We use stone ground organic chocolate in both our hot chocolate and hot/iced mochas, and our famous chai lattes are made with small batch, micro brewed tea, spices, and honey.
We believe in keeping things simple and honest and we make most of the baked goods we offer. Although pastry selection varies daily, you can generally expect to find scones, breads, coffee cakes, brownies, and lemon bars on any given day, baked with a lot of love and the same ingredients you probably have in your pantry..

Loose Leaf Teas
All of our milk based drinks feature Straus Organic Barista Milk. Soy and almond milk are available upon request at no additional charge. We also serve gluten free oat milk for an additional charge.
We take pride in preparing your tea with the same amount of care as we do our coffee. Our selection is always changing, so be sure to ask what is currently being served. All of our teas are certified organic.
Number Two or “Rillo” opened its doors in November 2016. We believe if it isn't broken, don't fix it, so there you will find the same great coffee and a slightly smaller selection of pastries as we offer at our shop in Ventura
Number Two is the big “little sister.” Seating isn't an issue, so whether you want to meet friends, hold a business meeting, or have a study session, we are here for you. We are proud to display rotating exhibitions from local artists and host live music from local musicians. WiFi is available to our customers.
