Cafe of the Moment: Communal Coffee

2335 University Ave

San Diego, CA 92104

o (1)

If you’re in the North Park area and in the mood for unique drinks and tasty eats, you have to check out Communal Coffee. They call themselves a craft coffee company, but they also serve tea, lemonade, cold pressed juice, matcha, and more. Our favorite drinks on the menu are the Rose Vanilla Latte, the Sea Salt Caramel Latte, the Sparkling Lavender Lemonade (for those hot summer days), and the Lavender Honey Latte. If you’re hungry, we recommend the Avocado Toast, Lavender Honey Toast, or one of their sweets treats like the Blondie or an Ice Cream Sandwich.

The atmosphere is cheerful and hip – like visiting a carefully curated Instagram feed. In fact, Communal Coffee is practically made for Instagram. They have a collaboration with Native Poppy so the coffee shop is full of beautiful flower bouquets. They also sell fun gifts and cards so be sure to spend some time perusing their selection!

Parking is definitely limited. Like so much of North Park, it’s street parking early. So if you live within walking or biking distance, definitely leave your car at home. But Communal Coffee is definitely well worth the parking struggle!

Cafe of the Moment: The King’s Craft Coffee Co

Poway, CA 92064

Simply put: we think this is the best coffee and tea shop in Poway! It’s a true hidden gem, hidden down at the end of Twin Peaks Rd. It’s the perfect stop after a morning spent hiking Iron Mountain or Lake Poway (AKA Potato Chip). Not only does this coffee shop have great atmosphere if you plan to spend the morning catching up with a friend or getting some work done, they serve outstanding drinks and baked goods! Plus, all of the servers are super friendly and eager to help you pick out a drink you’ll love.

First, the coffee: people love their lattes and espresso! Whether you want a basic cup of coffee or something more adventurous, King’s Craft has you covered.

If you’re not a coffee drinker, they have plenty of delicious non-coffee options from their Mexican Hot Chocolate (Delicious) to the Lavender Chai Latte (Amazing) to their Iced Teas (yes, even the Iced Tea is worth writing home about!)

Of course, no cup of coffee or tea would be complete without a delicious, fresh-baked pastry. Their scones, muffins, and waffles are all bursting with flavor and are the perfect complement to your drink of choice! They also serve Cravory cookies so if you’ve been wanting a Cravory Cookie without the drive, you can get them at King’s Craft!

The parking lot is a bit small and is right next to a community soccer field, so if you’re visiting on a Saturday morning you might have to park along Espola Rd. But trust us when we say that The King’s Craft Coffee Co is worth the trip!

One more thing we should mention: The King’s Craft is locally owned and operated and they also donate a portion of their sales of select items to non-profit organizations and community youth programs!

Restaurant of the Moment: Corner House Cafe

Corner House Cafe

11815 Sorrento Valley Rd, San Diego, CA 92121

858-755-3183

If you live in Carmel Valley or Sorrento Valley, Corner House Cafe must sound familiar! The family-owned business has been impressing our taste buds since 2000, and is a hot lunch spot due to it's impressive menu, and central location. The cafe offers a wide array of food, anything from pizza to wraps, but specializes in hot and cold sandwiches.

As adults, sandwiches seem to be an underrated food group due to the fact that we consumed countless PB&J's while growing up. After discovering Corner House, sandwiches have become a popular food item for us once again. The cafe uses quality meat, cheese, and bread to provide a hearty sandwich that makes you a repeat customer.

If you are in the mood for a hot sandwich, the "Iron man" is a fan favorite and consists of Grilled Chicken Breast, Avocado, Swiss, Honey Mustard Dressing, Tomato & Sprouts on Sourdough Bread. Our favorite cold sandwich is the "Turkey Avocado" that includes turkey Breast, jack, avocado, onion, tomato, lettuce & mayo on sourdough Bread.

Be sure to order the "special sauce" too...it's a perfect compliment for any sandwich on the menu!

Parking is limited so be sure to allow enough time to find a spot!

This house-turned-cafe is located on the popular Del Mar street, Stratford Ct, and has been a staple of locals for years! Walking distance from the beach, the delicious cafe offers quality homemade food that coincides perfectly with the healthy Del Mar lifestyle.

Good news for dog lovers, the cafe is very dog-friendly. It is rare that you will ever see less than five adorable dogs relaxing on the patio, and be sure not miss the picture of dog trainer extraordinaire, Cesar Millan, that is framed next to the register!

The beach-casual cafe serves breakfast and lunch all day, and makes some of the best hot drinks. If you are in the mood for breakfast, our go-to healthy item is the Powerhouse scramble that comes with with egg whites, soy sausage, spinach, tomato, feta cheese, black beans, and a spinach tortilla on the side. For lunch-lovers, the sandwiches are drool-worthy and are served with the best homemade cilantro pasta.

Before leaving, do yourself a favor and order the Comfort Bowl. Don't let the name deceive you as it is a warm drink that consists of frothed soy milk, honey, and chamomile tea.  Although simple, it is surely one of the most delicious things we have ever been lucky enough to taste!
