Philz La Jolla: San Francisco Flavors, San Diego Style

Coffee lovers rejoice, Philz La Jolla is here! The closing of Peet’s Coffee at the Shops at La Jolla Village was a sad day for local caffeine junkies, but luckily, you don’t have to give up your access to amazing coffee. Based in the Bay Area, Philz Coffee is insanely popular in Northern California–and it’s already gathering a loyal fan base in San Diego. What exactly is so unique about this place? Here’s what you need to know about La Jolla’s newest up-and-coming coffee shop.

Order Up
The ordering process at Philz can be a little confusing if you’ve never been there before. But don’t worry! We break it down for you. Once you get to the front of the line, let the barista know what coffee or tea drink you’d like (the barista who takes your order will be making your drink). There are several options on how to have your drink so keep reading to know more. Then, go to the right where you can add food and pay for your order.

Although it depends on the time of day, this is already a very popular spot for coffee lovers, so expect a sizeable line. Each order is individually brewed so allow some time as it takes awhile to drip. If you’re really short on time, you can order ahead with the new Philz Coffee app. You can place your order, check on its progress, and swoop by to pick up your pour over without the wait.
