Due to increasing concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we will be taking several precautions to protect the safety of customers and our staff. These precautions are based on suggestions by the CDC, local government, and what we feel is the right thing to do.

These include:

  • All customers must be wearing mask to enter buildings or order. As of May 1st the City of San Diego is requiring everyone to wear a mask when entering a public building.
  • No more dining in. Customers are still welcome to come in and order their favorites, but we ask that you take the order with you. If possible, please use the Ritual app to order. We are working to get on other order & delivery apps.
  • All food & drink will be made to go. We will not be reusing any plates, cups, or mugs in an effort to limit contact. This includes customers bringing their own mugs, though we will still honor the discount if you have a mug with you.
  • Removing the self-serve stations. All items are still available by request, but must be handled by our baristas for safety reasons
  • We are encouraging the use of card or contactless payment methods. We have no intentions of banning cash, but would appreciate your cooperation.
  • Increased cleaning & sanitation. This is something we already pride ourselves on, but a little extra never hurts. If you would like your table or seat to be cleaned before use, we will gladly do that for you.

Follow our Instagram or Facebook, along with this blog post for any further updates. We intend to continue serving the community for as long as the city allows us.

    Thank you for staying open and for staying careful. Looking forward to a bit of morning food – and latte! – thanks to you. It’s much easier to cope if I can begin the morning close to the usual routine. Your diligence in keeping it as clean and “socially distant” as possible is much appreciated. I help produce the organ concerts in Balboa Park — now our weekly concerts will be available online (recorded in advance at a secret undisclosed location ; ) ). PS – Balboa Park has been reclaimed by the birds and trees – and a few more hand-washing stations. Cheers.
