Late Night Coffee Shops in San Diego

bclum1974 Nov 11, 2007 09:47 PM

Does anyone know of any late night coffee shops in the San Diego area. Preferably something that stays open til 1 or 2am, and doesn't mind people doing work there.

Thanks for the help!

      Rebecca's in South Park (30th and Juniper) is open 24 hours Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

      Free wireless.

      Yummy scones!

        I think BRIANS in Hillcrest is open very late. City Deli also offers late hours.

          I wouldn't drink coffee at these places even if you pay me money and I doubt that they will be happy if you do your work there.

            great negative comments, but where is your suggestion of a place to go?

              Lestat, Rebecca's, Claire de Luna. But I don't see Brians and City Deli as coffeeshops.

                Coffee Shop is a common term for a casual diner-style restaurant. Coffeehouse is more often used for what you are talking about. That being said, I think the original poster probably had something more like the places you have listed in mind - Rebecca's, Urban Grind and Lestat's would be good choices.

          I am a regular at Lestat's on graveyard hours and the coffee is always fresh. They have the BEST cookies in City Heights. I think they still use (GASP!) trans fats.

          Ate at Rudford's the other night, had not been there in years. Decent, friendly service, good atmosphere.

            Lestats is located in Normal Heights, not City Heights.

            Thanks for the suggestions. I was in fact looking for a coffeehouse where I could do my work during the early morning hours. I appreciate the suggestions. Keep them coming!

              Has anyone tried Commonwealth?

                It's not in central SD, but Studio Diner in Kearney Mesa is open 24/7 and they don't mind you working late night.
