Raise your hand if you’ve ever woken up at the crack of dawn in an unfamiliar bed surrounded by little hands and feet and thought, “I can’t wait to brew the complimentary coffee in the bathroom of my hotel room!” Yeah, me neither. The good news is that our Beyond the Zoo Guides always include a favorite local coffee or breakfast stop along the route.
The first stop of the Beyond the Zoo Guide to Torrey Pines & Solana Beach is Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, an award winning San Diego-based craft coffee roaster known for its Farm to Cup brews.
Coffee connoisseurs may spring for Bird Rock’s famous $11 cup of coffee while budget conscious moms and dads will appreciate that a 12oz batch brew is a reasonable $2.50 investment. We gravitate towards the Monkey Bite Espresso.
