Best coffee in town. They roast at this location, so it's fun to see roasting going on while the barista prepares your brew. Many brews available. They take their coffee very seriously here and really know what they are doing. Gotta go in the morning, though -- they close at noon at this location. Also, they don't offer food yet other than the most delicious chocolate biscotti, but it's worth a trip just for the coffee.

Sister location to the San Diego Zoo. Very large savannah-like enclosure where numerous animals roam free and interact. You have to ride a tram around it. Lorikeet enclosure where you can feed these beautiful noisy birds that will land right on you. Cheetah run once a day in the afternoon.
