If you are in a bind and need something quick downtown, this place is ok. I had the ham and cheese croissant. The egg was really hot but the ham was cold and the cheese wasn’t melted. I ate it anyway and probably will not...More

Stopped by here for the first time while downtown with my wife. I was very excited to see that they had a vanilla macadamia coffee. It was amazing. My wife had an iced coconut latte and enjoyed it. We will be back.

I walked here twice during our stay in San Diego and had the oatmeal bowl both times. So good! Great coffee and service, too.

Great hang out for work, leisure, or alone time. WiFi with purchases. Great variety of drinks, tasty treats and more. Small venue but big tastes. Staff is quick and friendly with service. Always occupied but never seemingly too busy or over crowded.

Had lunch here twice during a visit to San Diego. The Sandwiches and healthy Duke fruit bowl were freshly made and the price was very reasonable. Would go back when n town.

Always look forward to visiting when in town. Located in the Gaslamp district, this was a short walk from our hotel. We ordered the pitaya bowl and large coffee, which was plentiful for two. Service was friendly, the cafe is quaint and comfortable. What a...More
