“Great breakfast and Mocha latte.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place has high quality ingredients bursting with delicious flavors! Be prepared to wait in line and search for a spot to sit, but once you place your order the food arrives quickly. Well worth the wait.

“North County's best coffee!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I had one of the best lattes I've ever had at this neighborhood coffee shop. The soy salted caramel latte is delicious. This is my new favorite coffee shop. I love that they have multiple options for milk (regular, soy, coconut) and different options for coffee (cold brewed, press, etc.). The baristas are excellent and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They take their time to make it perfect, and it's worth it. They had a few baked goods that looked great, along with gluten-free options. I will be back again and again. There are a few inside and outside tables, but this is more of a takeaway spot.

“Worth the Wait”

Loftybean is a one of a kind coffee joint. Organic is their style and there is always a line. They also have fabulous sandwiches.

“Great Coffee and Service”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a lovely spot! Close to the beach, great food options (including Gluten free) and service with a smile to boot. So grateful we were staying close to this coffee shop during our visit to Encinitas.
