My favorite coffee house in San Diego by a long shot. When I lived in La Jolla I would drive over here for a sandwich and drink at least once a week. The owner bakes some amazing treats and the beers are an excellent reminder that we live in a know worries paradise. The outdoor patio is a true... read more

As a new resident of Golden Hill, Krakatoa is easily the best new find of the area thus far. The coffee is superb and the food is absolutely delicious. Several sandwich varieties have been tried and all have been spot on. Previous reviews of the potato salad did not disappoint. There is no menu item to lead you astray. Whether... More

I love love love this place. You can't go wrong. Sit on the patio and enjoy the weather. I get the STELLAR (Toasted rustic cranberry-orange-walnut break spread with creamy whole-milk ricotta, sliced fresh strawberries, and drizzled with wildflower honey served with a fresh fruit cup.) UMMM OMG. ALSO, must get the potato salad. THE BEST. And the chocolate chip cookie!... More

Love funky coffeeshops like this! Possibly the best cappuccino I've ever had (and that's saying a lot!). Really nice selection of food as well. Great vibe, wish I could've spent a couple hours here people watching.

This place has the best coffee in golden hills. I always order there iced mocha and the everything bagel with cream cheese. It's the perfect combination for a breakfast snack or a good early afternoon light lunch. The outside patio is a tranquil place to kick back and read a book or browse the internet. The patio desk is covered... More

I know this is trip advisor, and I live in San Diego, so it's not much of a trip, but I just have to recommend this spot to everyone. I have the luxury of being able to work from home, but the fact is some times I get a case of cabin fever and need a change of venue. Krakatoa... More
