Monterey Nightlife: 40 reviews and 111 photos

Looking for a quiet place downtown to stave off the chilly winter weather or relax in front of your laptop? Plumes is the spot! This ideally located coffee shop and hi-fi hot spot is located at the corner of Franklin and Alvarado, and is very popular among MIIS students, local military, tourists, and eve homeless drifters. Plumes is a big place with plenty of street-side window seats and a few outdoor tables. They have a great selection of coffees, teas, juices, and pastries.

Many reviews of the place point to the service as being somewhat suspect, be we enjoyed our visit and had better than average help from the staff.
