Winner of the 2012 Roaster of the Year award by Roast Magazine, this San Diego coffee shop knows how to make the perfect cappuccino with creamy foam. It has local roasts, and the knowledgable staff can talk to you about them endlessly. It offers single origins, blends, and decaf.


  • The Bird Rock caf specializes in direct trade and micro-lot coffeecoffee brewed from beans that are harvested from a single, independent farm.
  • Consistently the best coffee I've had in San Diego, and I grew up here!
  • Get the Viennese if you want something that highlights the coffee and isn't too sweet. Cinnamon & honey dance in your cup!
  • The best aroma in all the lands. And the coffee is stellar, natch. Organic. Fair trade. Get there early for a Blueberry Cornmeal Scone (from Bread and Cie) on Wed, Fri, or Sat.
  • While the highlight is their dedication to sourcing the best beans in the most ethical of ways, they also have a quaint shop in which to drink it.
  • Delicious hot chocolate with whipped cream!
  • Best coffee shop in SD! It was my first time going and the owner Chuck said hi and good bye to my friend and I. Definitely will visit more when I return to SD!
  • Shoutout to barrista Jonathan Yang
  • Check out the awesome bird rock elementary art : )
  • Lest you think that the best roasteria are in Seattle, think again. This place ranks with the best of small batch roasteria in the US.
  • Super friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Will definitely be back for my coffee fix!
  • Try the caramel mocha. It's to die for!
  • Try the Trophy Wife! Coffee as good as Seattle!! Love it here :) Baristas here are awesome too!
  • Best coffee I've had in San Diego. Direct trade, wonderful cappuccinos. Busy in the morning and closes early. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • They are known for their perfect lattes and coffees- also their delectable pastries. The 'trophy wife' is great, also their 4 shot caramel lattes with whip. Be sure to check out their walls covered in
  • One of the best coffee shops to buy beans at! A little pricy, but it comes with the quality beans!!
