Coffee Shop San Diego


San Diego may have been a little late to catch up with the craft coffee boom that started in the ’90s but rest assured that it’s more than caught up. Over the past two years, the number of local roasters and independently owned shops has rapidly grown. Some popular roasters, such as Dark Horse Coffee Roasters and Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, have expanded operations by opening multiple coffee shop locations across the county.

Indeed, these days the San Diego coffee scene now rivals many metropolitan areas across the United States. Maybe it’s not Seattle, but there is hardly a neighborhood now that doesn’t have a cozy haven with excellent espresso and coffee beverages. From up-and-comers to the well-established, here’s where to seek a fresh coffee fix.
