Like many of you, I can’t start my day the right way without a delicious cup of coffee in my somnolent hand, especially when doing SEO San Diego coding work. However, over the past few years my love for the black beverage has been growing steadily, after I discovered craft/artisanal coffee, and the delicious blends they can produce.
You might not know this but, much like cuisine, the production and consumption of crafted coffee have spawned an entire sub-culture around it. And people like me who love to try new blends of coffee and preparations, are always looking for the places that serve them.
However, unlike Portland or Seattle, the coffee scene here in San Diego is somewhat new, and the coffee culture is still growing and finding its way.
So, to help it along, and more importantly, to give you, my readers, an excuse to go out and enjoy a delicious cup, I’ve put together a short but significant list of some coffee shops downtown San Diego that I think are definitively worth your attention.
Ok, you have probably heard about this place already, but in case you haven’t, I’m starting my list with it, since Achilles Coffee Roasters is my go-to spot Downtown for coffee.
Their specialty is cold brew pour overs, and if you don’t know what any of that means, you are in for a great learning experience. The back has a beautiful, open space to lounge. I think the prices are very reasonable, especially when you take into account that everything here is handcrafted. The mere act of watching the staff prepare the drinks is a treat in and of itself.
Recommended Drink: The Turk – Cold brew, Mint, Cardamom, and Brown Sugar.
We have inspired and motivated business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals around the world for the past few years, and we’ve designed apps that both boost brand awareness and drives productivity off the charts. However, we realized that we couldn’t help everyone. and the truth is not everyone is our match made in heaven. Therefore, we only accept new clients after an extensive screening process that helps us determine whether we will be a good fit for each other.
Next on this list is Elixir Expresso Bar. If you want a trip back in time driven by the taste and aroma of excellent coffee, this is the place to visit.
Right on the first floor of the iconic Marston building in the heart of Downtown, you can enjoy the most delicious blends in the mezzanine of one of the architectural gems of San Diego. The place has soft music, but it is quiet and relaxed, the perfect ambiance for a light conversation with your friends or for kicking back and reading a book.
Recommended Drink: Mexican Mocha – Rich and hearty flavor topped by latte art.

After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
The Mud Bar is living proof that you don’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience.
It is a sidewalk kiosk located right in the heart of the city’s business area; The Mud bar is the ideal place to stop by on a busy day when you get the need to have a delicious, high-quality coffee in your hands.
There’s also a few chairs and a little bar area where you can spend your time drinking your coffee if you don’t need it on the go, and is this convenience and easy access that makes this one of the must-visit coffee shops downtown San Diego.
Recommended Drink: Iced Vietnamese Coffee – Sweet and Refreshing.
Give Heartsleeves a visit, and it will steal your heart. It is as simple as that.
This place has the most adorable, Alice in Wonderland inspired decoration, which gives the site a unique and lovely ambiance with a laid back, outside-sitting kind of vibe. Many coffee places in San Diego capture a sort of magical feeling about them, but Heartsleeves certainly stands out from the others in that regard.
Recommended Drink: Unbirthday Cake Latte – Condensed Milk, Bourbon Vanilla. Very sweet and delicious.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
