Good place to meet for a quick drink, don't hope for too much if you order food. I fell they exploit their employees. Good for people watching and relax meet ups.

Great sandwiches and coffee. The music made for a very relaxing hour plus break from the hustle and bustle of walking/shopping in La Jolla.

This local coffee shop is cozy, central in La Jolla and has tasty desserts! The views from the back side are nice as you overlook the LJ cove I can't stand SB so I always try and go to the local places. Parking can be tough in LJ but thankfully most of it is still meter free.

The coffee was great, a million times better than the usual chain coffee houses. My only issue is that it took 15 minutes to make it!

Our family drove to La Jolla to see the sealions and tide pools. We came early and were lucky to park by Scripps Park. Because of our early head start, we hadn't had bkfst yet.

Enjoyed this little cozy spot for a morning cappuccino. Nice selection of sweets to choose from as well. Don't be fooled by the exterior. Inside you will find nice seating areas and a little slice of the Pacific Ocean to view.

Large inside and nice patio outside. Good coffee drinks and pastries, salads, etc. Parking is an issue in the area.

Oh boy. My wife ordered the Suizzerra. I went latte. I was jealous. Next day I ordered the Suizzerra and my wife went with another.... she was jealous. 3rd day, "2 Suizzerras please." There are lots of coffee shops, well, everywhere. We were impressed with the mochas. I did not eat at Living Room, BUT I did enjoy the ocean... More

I got the Bomb Alaska Freeze - EXCELLENT! They create this white chocolate frozen drink and then pour in 2 shots of fresh espresso creating a poof of steam. Really cool and tasty. Great prices and beautiful location! Wanna try something other than Starbucks? Check this place out!
