Nice space, nice location

Went to java depot for a meetup. The location is good, the staff pleasant and the atmosphere is really relaxed. Had a cappuccino and liked it.

Stopped in while touring the pacific coast in need of some caffeine and found this cozy shop that allowed you to enjoy both indoors and outdoors while sipping Java. The brew both hot and cold were enjoyed. A definite recommend if in the area.

Great location with average service and average coffee and average food. Such a nice location with great patio and outdoor seating but just okay. Popular because of Coast Hwy location.

I ordered a 12oz coffee with a shot and honestly it had hardly any body. This is the second time I tried Java Depot. I like the seating and atmosphere, but the coffee will not bring me back.

My wife and I grew up in North County and spent many hours talking and sharing what was going in our lives at Java. The environment at Java is excellent for getting together and hanging out with friends. We don't live in the area anymore, but every time we visit the area we stop in for a cup of Java.

I really liked the relaxed atmosphere and the juice and smoothie bar next door (same building). I had the coffee which was good, but the breakfast burrito was only ok.

our server was very friendly, but the coffee was rather weak and our dessert was old and dry. not worth the money we paid for it.

While looking for Starbuck's we were guided to Java Depot. We ordered an iced tazo chai equivalent and a cafe mocha. They were having problems with their CC scanner the day we were there and we tried entering our info for emails (we will be back in that area soon) but it didn't work either. The coffee and tea were... More

Folks were friendly, but they seemed a bit disorganized and it took a long time to get my salad, which was not at all great.

Years before Naked Cafe, Zinc, Claires etc opened their doors in Solana Beach, Java Depot was the place to go for coffee and good food. I used to study there when I was in college and I loved the atmosphere. I still enjoy their outdoor seating area and their veggie bagels and breakfast croissants are excellent. In fact, when I...
