The living room is unassuming, but has great food and drinks. We had the falafel wrap and a salad with grilled chicken, all excellently prepared - Wouldn't expect it, but the desserts are greas and a nice assortment of cakes etc.

As you wander around the hills of La Jolla feel free to stop by this hidden gem of a coffee shop. The Living Room Coffee is a great place to hang out with your friends, write your next novel, munch on delicious treats that go with coffee or tea. Casual, but hip, affordable, but quality.

Absolutely loved our visit today, everything was yummy but the blueberry muffin was the best I have ever tasted! Trust me I have tried a lot but never one so amazing!

Ate here today. The food did take a while but was worth it in the end. I had nachos and my partner has the burrito both were excellent as were the macaroons.

So glad we found this place. Food was so good that we went twice. I had the falafel wrap both times! Others had the hummus wrap, soup, and muffulata. Everyone enjoyed it!

Tasty food with lots of choices, muffins to hot food but expensive, we are family of 4 from Chicago prices are not this high, but you decide: we had 2 chicken tender plates it had 4 tenders and fries,...

We stopped in the Living Room after walking along the beach to grab something cold and tasty before driving back home. It is right on the main drag with lots of parking options available. The service was great and the ambience was mellow and inviting. I just had some regular coffee and my husband got a blood orange iced tea.... More

So disappointed, treated like I was supposed to know that you pick up your coffee from the counter when your sitting in AFTER you're given a number card at your table. I heard "cafe au lait" yelled out twice (this was after my sandwich was delivered to my table) when I approached the girl to ask where my coffee was... More

This place has been around for a while. Great place to relax and enjoy a drink/dessert if you're tired from walking around beautiful La Jolla Cove. There are plenty of couches and space to sit down and relax.
