    Nothing to report that other reviews don't already cover- get the cinnamon toast and girlfriend (London fog but with more deliciousness inside!)
  • Cassandra Z.
    Try the grapefruit juice. Listen to the music. Read the stickers. Awesome espresso drinks.

    There's no menu here so be prepared! Just ask for what you know if you are a coffee connoisseur.

    Get a Toast: go with the standard cinnamon sugar for your first time, then explore peanut butter honey, or Nutella.

    If this is your first time here... Welcome! Ask for the "build your own damn house." If you're not feeling that adventurous, get a toast and latte.

    I asked, "what toppings do you have?" The guy rolls his eyes and sighs for a long enough time for us to get that he was annoyed, then told us. He did this to other people after us. 9/5/2015 @ 12:30pm

    Their cinnamon toast is the perfect reward for the bike ride out to Ocean Beach. Don't be put off by the price, just try it and you'll understand.

    Coffee with an attitude. Not necessarily rude, not necessarily kind. Don't like strong coffee? Don't like expensive toast? Don't like torturous music? Well sir, you can kindly f#%k off. Loving it❤️

    Get a coffee and toast while you wait for your table at Outerlands for brunch. The coffee is roasted on the darker side.

    Here in the morning? Get a Gibraltar with a slice of peanut butter toast with honey on top. If you don't have a great day after that start I'm not sure I can help you sorry.

    Get an espresso and a toast. (Skip the cappucino, the milk feels like expanding foam.)

    The original artisanal toast. Grab a slice, a coffee and take a walk to the beach.

    Soy Gibraltar is liquid perfection! Toast is off the charts as are their pastries and the crew is awesome at both locations!!

    The home of artisanal toast! Buttery cinnamon toast, fresh coconuts, and oh so much faster that The Mill.

    Come here for the famous $4 toast. Hang out outside on the log and enjoy your toast with some great espresso. Also, generally good tunes. Nice staff, but can be intimidating and overly-hipster.

    The place where the toast craze began. Grab a coffee and a toast to tide you over while you wait the hour to get into Outerlands.

    You must get the toast. And find the PS Mag article about this shop. It's an inspiring story and it explains everything.

    Cinnamon toast, cinnamon toast, cinnamon toast. Try it to believe it. While you're at it, order a coffee or two.

    Can't hang with caffeine? Neither can I. They are yet another establishment that is too awesome to consider people with medical conditions. Rad!

    The people that work here have a major attitude problem and be prepared to pay $3.50 for the tiniest latte of your life.

    The ultimate power breakfast: a cup of coffee, a thick piece of white toast slathered with butter and cinnamon sugar, and a whole young coconut.

    I always get the cinnamon toast. It's the perfect bite of soft crunchy bread and sweet cinnamon drizzled with a bit of butter. A great way to start my day!

    The cinnamon toast is outta this world. Super-thick sliced bread is slathered in cinnamon-sugar butter and toasted until the crunchy top shatters into tiny shards with each bite.

    Hover at the counter and listen for, "TOAST!" They don't put your name on it, so you've gotta snatch that shit as soon as it pops up.

    Went here a second time. I really enjoy the environment of the place but sweet jeebus it's overpriced! Finally tried the cinnamon toast though and it was decent.
