Ever on the quest for a great cup of coffee, I try to find the best everywhere I go. I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but I love it, so when I indulge, I’m looking for quality. This is just that kind of place, located in San Diego, CA. Minimalist, no muss, no fuss. Small-batch, roasted in-house, drip. As close to Brooklyn-style super bougie coffee (I’m the worst offender, so I mean that endearingly) as I’ve found yet in San Diego.
If you happen through San Diego, this great new spot just opened in North Park from the people behind Craft & Commerce. The cocktails are just as tasty, but it’s so much less of a scene (in the best possible way). I love the vibe & the open air. The cocktails are DELICIOUS & only $8 (my favorite is the Ocean Side with gin, lime, mint, sea salt, & celery bitters). They don’t have their own liquor license, but if you go next door to Soda & Swine (it’s connected via hallway), you can order at the counter from the simple meatball menu & they bring your food to you in the bar. They even offer a quinoa ‘meatball’ which is right up my alley. I will definitely be a frequent offender.
