“Great place to hang out ”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

A nice neighborhood feel to this shop. Though I didn't bring them, the children have a fun little chalkboard booth to play in. Very thoughtful given it is located perfectly for college students. The espresso blend was unique, but delicious. And the service was great, friendly, and prompt. I love this place!

“Coffee lovers paradise”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This place is always bustling with a hip crowd. Being in a nice part of town (Bird Rock, La Jolla) you can almost always be certain of this sort of crowd on any day of the week. They are all here for the coffee (why there are ever people across the road at the Starbucks is truly beyond me!) and it's fabulous. Free wifi, seating inside and out. People with laptops, strollers, dogs and bicycles, they are all regulars (probably!)

“Best coffee ever”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

Stopped for a quick bew and had the best coffee we've ever had in our long lives. Bird Rock Coffee is located on the strip just south of La Jolla, has comfortable outside and inside seating, and is a nice relaxed atmosphere. The server was very helpful explaining the coffee's to use and the barista manually crafted the espresso. He brewed and created a beautiful latte for myself and my husband, who no fan of specialty coffee, had a cafe americano. The coffee was full of fresh flavor and delicate undertones that are burnt out of so many roasts. We both regretted not living on the west coast and bought a pound of monkey bite beans to take home. Love you Bird Rock Roasters.

“Delicious Coffee, Pleasant Atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

I loved the feel of this coffee shop. There was a crowd of locals hanging out both inside and outside. What's even better is that the windows are garage doors, so there's really not an inside or outside: it was very open and welcoming. The downtown location was great too; we stopped in from the interstate, and it wasn't too much of a detour. The staff was very nice and helpful. And the coffee was delicious! I recommend the French Roast.
