ALL MY FAVORITE COFFEE SHOP STOPS IN NORTH COUNTY SAN DIEGO

 

I have recently moved out of my suburban area with a Starbucks on every corner. The closest thing to an authentic coffee shop was an It's A Grind, which wasn't awful because you cant really mess up a house coffee (no creamer, no sugar). Boy have my taste buds been spoiled with the flavors of these local coffee roasters.

Since I have been in Oceanside, I have tried every coffee place from a cafe covered in succunlent to coffee served from a truck. 

HERE ARE MY TOP 5 FAVORITE COFFEE SHOP AND WHAT YOU NEED TO TRY!

Revolution roasters

The greater part of South Oceanside

The day I moved into my apartment I walked around the corner to get a coffee. Revolution Roasters was the first coffee shop I saw so I decided to try it. Let's just say now I am in denial that I spend $2 on coffee every morning... EVERY MORNING! 

The atmosphere is bright and welcoming. Each barista asks questions to get to know their regulars, though they are just as friendly with new faces. This is one of those shops where you can't leave without taking a picture whether it be the design in your latte or the subway tiles on the wall. 

Now to the coffee! Three words! LAVENDER HONEY LATTE! Even though my go to is their house coffee, I get all confident and order out of my box. I have had anything from the Coffee Soda to The Alchemist. 

This coffee shop made it to my list of favorites because it feels like home.

Better Buzz Coffee

Downtown Encinitas

I was driven down the coast and gazed out my window as I passed Better Buzz Coffee. I immediately turned around and had to go in to check it out. This place is seriously one of the prettiest coffee shops i have been to so far (and I have been to a few). Would it be weird to want to host a wedding reception here? Yeah, I thought so. 

Everyone here is so friendly and the atmosphere was warm. I ordered the Killer Bee which gourmet coffee topped with a triple shot of espresso. They have a drink literally called Best Drink Ever.

This shop is definitely somewhere you need to stop by if you are in Encintas, Ca.

Swell coffee co.

Flower Hill Promenade in Del Mar

I stumbled into Swell Coffee Company and was immediately jaw dropped by the aesthetic of this coffee house. The elegant atmosphere makes it an easy spot to meet my clients and go over my portfolio. It is a mellow place with a lot of natural light and open space. If the coffee was as delicious as the environment, I could not waste it on a house coffee. I ordered a hot dirty chai latte (you will soon find out I order EVERYWHERE). 

All in all, this coffee shop made it into my top favorite coffee shops because the atmosphere was prettier than most wedding venues, the coffee was so good finished it within a few minutes, and the staff were incredibly friendly.
