My Top Four Cafes in San Diego

It’s no surprise that I love hunting for cute cafes while on vacation.  The first one on my list is Holy Matcha, and it was by far my favorite of the four. Most of the items on the menu are made with matcha, and all of the items are gluten free and vegan! I wanted to order one of everything on the menu. I ended up ordering the pumpkin spice matcha latte, the pink lemonade donut, and the almond butter and strawberry toast. It was all so delicious and healthy too. The decor inside was another bonus! They had a beautiful palm leaf printed wall, and blush pink booth style seating. I really wish we had a cafe like this one in my home town.

The second cafe on the list is Parakeet Cafe. What I love about this cafe was that their menu consisted of many organic options. They also had gluten free and vegan options that were clearly marked. I chose an iced herbal tea and the cacao waffle and both items were delicious. The interior of the cafe is so modern, and I love the parakeet wallpaper, and neon sign that says birds of a feather. I was very impressed by the quality of the food here, and how friendly the staff member were.

The third cafe is called Communal Coffee and it was definitely the most unique as it shares a space with a floral shop named Native Poppy. You can stop in and grab a cup of coffee, and a bouquet of flowers too. They also have an assortment of small gifts too. I opted for the lavender lemonade, and a good old slice of avocado toast. If you come to visit this place you must sit outside and take a picture with the famous Coffee and Flowers wall!

The fourth cafe on the list is S3 Coffee Bar. This little cafe is every instagrammer’s dream. You know a place is good when it’s in the middle of nowhere and it’s packed. They have a cactus printed wall with an old school pink telephone that was perfect for a photo-op. What stood out to me was their unique and tasty drink choices. They had some of their seasonal fall drinks out on the menu, so I opted for the Bee Hive Latte which was essentially a Honey Cinnamon Latte. I had mine with almond milk and it was so delicious. I highly recommend this place if you want a unique, but delicious cup of coffee.

I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday and thank you for reading! Let me know if you check out any of the cafes and your thoughts on them!
