Coffee Shops in the neighborhood
In addition to the one-cupper in your room, there are some good coffee shops in the neighborhood, far better options than Starbuck's!
This is a great neighborhood coffee and tea shop just a block away at Broadway and 20th St. Bakery items made fresh daily. Cool hipster vibe. Try a croissant cinnamon roll with orange-zest and pecans or one of their breakfast sandwiches.

Small grocery store with alcohol sales on C and 25th St. I would be very careful about buying produce, fresh, or frozen foods here. Check all dates. For these foods, go to Trader Joe's, Sprouts, even Ralph's, or go to farmer's markets if you're here on the weekend.

This is the oldest existing bar in San Diego, located in the Gaslamp Quarter. Opened as a saloon in 1885, the building housing it actually dates back to 1872. This part of town used to be San Diego's red light district, and the apartments above the bar in the Tivoli Towers were once a brothel. The wooden bar and back bar are original, and the bar's first silver cash register is still on display. Wyatt Earp was an early patron who came to gamble, drink, and get his groove on... some say his spirit never left.

The Waterfront is located in Little Italy and actually claims the oldest liquor license in San Diego, opening just days after Prohibition ended on December 5th, 1933. In its early days, it was a hangout for fishermen, whose photographs still hang on the walls. One of the two original owners, Chaffee Grant, was Ulysses S. Grant's grandson. "Always lively, Waterfront is more than just a reliable eggs-and-hash-browns dealer by day, quarter-pounder griller by night. It’s like a storied community center that sells great beer." -SD Tribune
