“Pour Over Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Walk past the startbucks across the street and get the good stuff (not that starbucks is bad, this is just a lot better). Get the pour over of the high end specialty coffee and you are in for a treat. What they do is simply better than what the mass market is putting in front of us.

“Great place to hang out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Great coffee and a great place to hang out. If it is a nice day in La Jolla, and it almost always is, spend a little time with a great latte and enjoy the coffee, the company and the atmosphere.

“Coffee to warm the soul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

I went to Birdrock for a quick breakfast and a drip coffee. The extra five minute wait was well worth it for a cup of the hand dripped coffee. My quiche was enough to constitute a full meal. Much more value than other coffee shops and chains. A must visit if you are staying in the area!

“Best coffee in San Diego area!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

I've been going to San Diego for years and can't believe I just discovered this place. Their coffee rocks!!! It's always crowded, but the service is super friendly and quick!! Can't wait to visit again on my next trip to the West Coast!! If you are a coffee drinker, this place is a MUST!!!

“Bird Rock Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We stopped at this place, while going upthe California coast for a 2 week vacation, and we're very glad we did. The coffee was wonderful, we bought a few pounds of the Monkey Bite coffee as gifts, and now that we're home we're sorry we didn't buy more. The atmosphere was very calm and nice, and the service was great, with the clerk very interested in what we might like. The pastries were wonderful (we found out that they buy them from a local French pastry shop) and we had a very good experience. Highly recommend them and will be back next time we're in the area!!!
