We found this on our last day in San Diego and it is by far the best coffee in Barrio Logan. The staff are friendly and the coffee was amazing. If you want a great cup of coffee visit this place.

Amazing. Cubano cortado was the barista choice today. The other day was honey cinnamon late. The store has the best selection of coffees and teas. Nice people serving you

Great coffee. Cheapest in town. Quiet spot in Barrio Logan. I'm not sure why I'm not giving it 5 stars...well it's because I don't hand those out easily.

Had the privilege of getting to sample some cold brew and a hot latte. The cold brew was smooth and they have different sweeteners, cream and flavoring so to add. However it didn't need anything. The hot latte was creamy and smooth and there was no bitterness that you get on the finish.

A small, clean parking lot greeted us (love that) and then wonderful, smiling, warm people greeted us at the door! Did not want to leave! The barristers seemed to really enjoy each others company and handle the flow of customers quite well. They seem to use high quality coffee, tea and milk (Strauss Milk - which I love) and I... More

Cafe Moto is my favorite coffee. The cafe is amazing they have a 12 & 24 hour cold brew coffee that will change the way you think about coffee. The staff is friendly and knows so much about all the different coffees Cafe Moto serves. If you love everything coffee come to Cafe Moto in Barrio Logan San Diego.

We got lost in San Diego and stopped at Cafe Moto for a wifi connection. Wow, it is in the top 10 tastiest cup of coffee I ever had, (I drink +5 cups/day), after an hour of tasting, came out with 5 pounds of various origins. This is on my list to do on my next visit in San Diego.

I found Cafe Moto while working my way through a long list of hip cafes tucked into various corners of the greater San Diego area. The cappuccinos here were perfect. This cafe is in a quasi-industrial area south of downtown where you might not expect it, which makes the discovery that much sweeter. If you enjoy seeing the transformation of... More
