Just a very short walk from the hotel and they make the best breakfasts ever! It definitely seems to be a favorite of many locals, we heard about it from a fellow a couple years ago who was also there in SD for a conference. So glad we did. We make a point of going there nearly every day when... More

We stopped in on foot for quick chai and coffee and were pleasantly surprised by the warm service and attractive surroundings. Would love to go again!

This is the best house coffee I had while in San Diego and I tried out about 5 or 6 of the most popular. (Better than Cafe 222, Lion, The Mission, and Broken Yolk as far as coffee is concerned) Their breakfast menu is limited to pastries, oatmeal and a couple Sandwiches. Their service was a little slow but friendly,... More

Brickyard Coffee & Tea was recommended by a member of the concierge staff at our hotel (San Diego Marriott Marina & Marquis) and we were not disappointed. The iced coffee was excellent and the bagel with pesto and cheese exceeded our expectations. We were grateful for the recommendation!

This spot was close to my hotel so I stopped here for a coffee on my way to my conference. There was no line, and just a couple people at the tables yet it took me nearly 15 minutes to order and get my latte to go. They just move slooooow, and are a little snooty to boot. I went... More

When you take the Greenline Trolley in San Diego, you pass this little place as you come into the Seaport Village Trolley station. It's small but has a unique flavor of oldness to it with the building being made of brick with some unique accents outside. The patio is nice, cozy and you can usually find a seat. The food... More

I visited the Brickyard last Sunday and had great sandwich and coffee. This place sits in a great spot, filled with activity and dog friendly. The people were really pleasant and to my surprise they had an amazing marimba player there! The music was incredible!

After my 06/29 review thought I would go back today to see if service and/or food had changed - after all - everyone deserves a second chance! To my utter disappointment - after waiting in line for 10 minutes I was told that the Brickyard was not longer serving Quiche or the Egg Bake! No more! Unbelievable - these are... More

The Brickyard has the worst service in downtown San Diego! The coffee shop does has good food and a great atmosphere, to bad the servers make you feel like you are inconveniencing them by asking for coffee. Every time I go to Brickyard there are multiple employees standing around talking and not helping customers. Then when you get service its... More
