Good selection of coffee and tea. After dinner we walked down Prospect street and came across this cozy coffee shop. You can get a quick bite or dessert. We had the pistachio baklava.

This is a cozy place to sit outside with a cup of coffee and people watch. Though I did not partake, there was a glass case filled with an array of delicious looking Greek and French pastries and such. Service was friendly and prompt.

We stopped at the Living Room during our recent stop in La Jolla. The coffee was good, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location is great, right near La Jolla cove.

I wrote my MA thesis at the Living Room in Hillcrest, which no longer exists, but the location in La Jolla is still thriving. This is a European style coffee house with lots of great coffee, pastries, and food to choose from.

We stopped here for lunch during a day trip to La Jolla. It was perfect for what we wanted: light, tasty food served in a casual setting. My husband and I both ordered chicken, grape and pecan salads, which were attractively presented and surprisingly filling....More
