We enjoyed a breakfast there where you can find lots of variaties and sandwiches. Also, they have good coffee and pastries. My friend and I loved this place.

It's clearly a local cafe that caters to an international crowd. The decor is a bit grungy, but functional. The desserts look great, but we did not try. Otherwise provides basic cafe food...sandwiches, salads, pastries, etc. Coffee is fine. Good wine happy hour price, but selection is not superb.

The coffee was stunningly good, the croissant and bagel were excellent too, please see my pix. The atmosphere was great and relaxing.... More

Quirky coffee joint near our hotel. Very friendly service & delicious coffee. A beautiful array of baked goods & eats too. The view is outstanding! Loved the decor!

Should have walked out when the worker taking our order was impatient (no one in line behind us), and acted like 4 literally capable adults were a pain in his hind end. We sat outside (the one plus is that they have outdoor dining). We were sitting at tables that were not cleared, or wiped off. We had to ask... More

After being convinced by the employee that the cake advertised as "Gluten Free" was infact Gluten Free, my gluten intolerant girlfriend decided it was worth a shot. Not 5 minutes later she was sick and throwing up. After confronting the employees about it they just kept simply saying "don't worry it 100% Gluten Free". Returning to their iPhone and refusing...

Its a coffee shop with great service. Not much more to say. Lots of room inside, some room outside. Great place for a caffine fix.

We stayed in La Jolla three nights, ate breakfast here twice. A good find with comfortable chairs and plenty of locals.

A below average place for me, there are far better around. It's dark and dingy, and the food below average, avoid the strawberry salad, it's way to sweet, it's like eating a salad covered in ice cream sundae sauce.
