Just popped in to grab a couple cappuccino's but place was packed and food looked great! Espresso drinks were great! Very homey, (actually in a renovated old classic house from early 1900's) with lots of outdoor seating, and a little inside. Very hipster and cool!

Great sandwiches, some you can't pronounce. A veritable think tank of people on laptops. Cabbage vegetable was soup of the day and quite good. Took half of my big sandwich home.

This place is awesome. It has the best desserts in town. Theresa (head barista) is great and remembers everyone's name. Great music and friendly atmosphere.

This coffee joint is a great little spot in Golden Hill, just south of Balboa Park. Worth a visit if you're in the area. Coffee is good, they have good available, and the staff is friendly.
