Such a cute little cafe with a decent sized menu. A regular cup of coffee is delicious. I love that they have healthier options. Indoor and outdoor seating and lots of space inside. Our breakfast only cost about $13. Staff was very friendly and the cafe was very clean.

Fast experienced baristas, friendly service, great in-house baked pastries, nice roomy atmosphere, dogs are welcome, small coffee there is cheaper than a small cup of crappy 7-11 coffee, and there's outside seating as well as indoors.

My husband and I stopped for a quick lunch after a walk in Balboa Park. We had bagels which were nice and coffee - my cappuccino was bitter and I wasn't too impress by it... But we had a nice pastry to end the meal and we both enjoyed. Quite nice place to spend some time too as the atmosphere... More

I am one who works 7 days a week like most that I know. For the first time in a long time, I had a sudden day off. I decided to take myself to this coffee shop (the Golden Hill location) since I finally had the time, and ordered the egg scramble on a croissant. I have NEVER eaten such... More

Not a bad alternative if the place up the street is packed. Staff is friendly and the place is really clean. Nothing bad about this place just prefer another spot. Great place to get some work done and grab a quick bite.

Here in the little Italy area for a few days. Once I discovered this for coffee, I was there every day. They have a great African coffee that's worth drinking black. On the last day, I went for the coconut lemon scone...big scone and plenty of taste. I'll be back in a few weeks and I'll be back here each... More
