    GREAT coffee, food & deserts downstairs, awesome hookah bar with great shisha upstairs. The pineapple mint shisha is the delicious. Very trendy clientele at night upstairs for hookah.

    With their free internet access, great food and coffee you'll be tempted to stay all day. The downside- parking in La Jolla is a pain. Found a parking structure that's a flat $5 at the Parisi Hotel.

    Friendly funny people work here and they are a delight even better than the great coffee and dessert. Love that it's open late.

    I stumbled upon this joint while exploring La Jolla for a week. Excellent spot to relax with a coffee or beer and the wireless is great.

    It's over priced but an excellent place to study. If you can get a table. Best not to come here for weekend study sessions, your best bet is a weeknight.

    Baklavas are nice. One of the few coffee shops open late in La Jolla! However they had run out of most desserts and the brownie sucks.

    Overrated, but it's one of the few places in downtown La Jolla that's open even mildly late. Downstairs they serve burnt espresso drinks, so opt for something iced or blended to be safe.

    Even if the cashiers say they don't have your brand in stock, tell them to check the back room before you buy Camel Filters.

    It's been some time since I've been to the Living Room. But it now has that undefined grossness that comes with a hookah lounge.

    This place has mediocre drinks, reeks of hookah and cigarettes all throughout the building which makes tasting their food horrendous, filthy and in need of cleanup, and the service is awful.
