This is a great place to get a coffee and a pastry if you are feeling indulgent. The espresso is smooth and rich. The chocolate croissants were flakey. I stopped 3x. Loved it every time. The Gratitude Journal was also a wonderful touch.

Eclectic and delightful. Simple and authentic. Coffee the way it should be. Cool vibe and friendliest baristas in town. Nice variety of local art also makes for a great atmosphere.

My wife and I went to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters last week while we were in San Diego. The Cinnamon and Honey coffee was REALLY good. I also tried the Salted Caramel coffee but found it a bit sweet. Over-all the place is very good...More

Bird rock coffee is my go to place for high end espresso. Not only have they won multiple awards for roasting, but also the funky neighborhood vibe is awesome.
