Our original shop is one of San Diego’s original espresso coffee houses and is considered a favorite by many of our long-time customers for its intimate and romantic setting.
In fact, it is considered one of San Diego’s finest first date establishments.
As is the case when we first opened in 1989, customers wait in line for their tum to order from the counter, find a cozy table while their dessert and drink are prepared, and then have their order brought to their table.
Please note that we do not take reservations and all of our services are provided first come, first served. Also, our menu varies daily base on ingredients and the seasons. Therefore, we are not guaranteed to have your favorite items available for every visit. Both of our stores do provide dine-in and take away service.
We are located at 2929 Fifth Avenue in San Diego’s Banker’s Hill/Hillcrest neighborhood, just steps away from beautiful Balboa Park. Fifth Avenue is a north-bound one-way street. We are between Palm and Quince Streets.
