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!

Tiny patio, dark interior, European vibe. Makes this a gem among lots of restaurants. Super friendly wait staff at the counter. 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.

This is such a cool place and it has fantastic drinks. I had a chai tea latte and it was one of the best I have ever had. Very rich and tasty. Definitely worth a stop.

Had a few minutes before dinner. Walking around found this shop. More than just coffee. Peek a boo view of the ocean. Lots of people conversing and seemingly happy. Ordered an expresso (done nicely) and sat in a comfortable chair and relaxed. Has a sort of unpretentious feel. But, the overhead music was awful and too loud. Maybe that is... More

I really loved the environment! It has this quaint gourmet coffee house bakery vibe. At the time, I wasn't hungry so I ordered a strawberry and banana smoothie which was delicious but very sweet. My buddy ordered a waffle combination which I tried to get a piece of when he wasn't looking but was unsuccessful. When I go back I... More

We stopped here on our last night in La Jolla for a quiet, easy night out. It's a very nice atmosphere with a great view of prospect street from the balcony. The customer service was very good, the hookahs were well made and the prices were reasonable. I am, however, docking one star for using instant-light coals.

Thank Paul N
