It seemed this place was up and coming. It was noisy when we were there. They were working on adding art and such to the walls.

A trip to Bird Rock Coffee is mandatory every time we are in La Jolla, which is about 6 to 8 times a year. The quality of the coffee cannot be surpassed.

We were on the hunt for good barista coffee and were recommended to go to Birdrock. We loved it and returned every day of our stay in La Jolla

Stopped by this spot for a bit of coffee after getting off the plane. I had the cortado (quite good), but this place looks great for any sort of coffee. I spotted the barista using an instant-read thermometer to make sure the milk was steamed to exactly the right temperature. Have to respect that attention to detail. There was ample... More
