    The 976 house blend of Cafe Moto beans has a full body feel featuring clean earthy flavors. A bite of acidity is added to the body with subtle mango or papaya tones. This cup would work well over ice.

    Spinach burger patty as a tomato wrap - amazing!! Summer salad with home made balsamic vinegar is very good as a lighter option.

    Such an amazing little coffee book, if you don't have time to sit and enjoy the floral atmosphere (bees!) there's plenty of grab and go options!

    the service was pretty slow but the atmosphere is great. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a quick breakfast but its great if you want to sit and relax and have some coffee and good food!

    For non-coffee lovers the Thai tea w/ almond milk and cinnamon is the best! And they're vegan cookies at the register are amazing!

    My favorite breakfast stop in San Diego before I head out home. Try the flavorful coffee selection! The food is vegetarian friendly as well.

    Super healthy lunch, but not the most flavor. Come here for a nice and cozy lunch or breakfast and sit in the sunroom.

    Place has a great vibe to sit have a cup of coffee, and do work, or chill. Awesome outdoor seating.

    Fish tacos are great! But don't use the salsa on them. They taste better without it. :)

    Great place for coffee and casual meetings but Chronic Smoothies definitely still offers a superior Acai Bowl.

    I'm a serious food snob. The breakfast here is seriously good. Throw in a great vibe and a walk from the beach. Perfect.

    Penguin Mocha here is more delicious than the Marble Mocha at Starbucks. Half chocolate mocha & half white mocha.

    Sitting out in the sun in the gardens with a cappuccino and an acai bowl is the best way to do work!

    Great place, but I ended up seated at a table next to the owner. She is an ignorant, bigoted woman who hates "the gays" and "the Mexicans." She also joked about firing her own staff. Don't go here!

    What's the opposite of efficiency? Dine here if you enjoy waiting for 30 minutes for take out.
