The Old Fashion Style of Twiggs Coffeehouse and Bakery

Image
Twiggs Coffeehouse and Bakery offers a homey atmosphere with traditional coffee shop décor and plenty of tables. Located in the University Heights business district it has created a name for itself through its bakery items and custom cakes. At any particular time you can find all types of people ranging from business professionals to students engaging in lively conversation and munching on a chocolate chip cookie.  This is not your “cookie cutter” establishment with franchise style décor. It is a real, down to earth, traditional 1950’s style coffee shop. Living room furniture with lamps rests in the corners while a variety of well worn tables are spread about the floor. It has a “throwback” charm of a time before the advent of computers.  Twiggs also supports the arts.

Pappalecco Gelato Lounge is an eclectic café near Little Italy in San Diego. It is not a large place but seems to be popular with local people.

If you are seeking a little coffee get away far from the cookie cutter establishments of more upscale locations you might want to check out Mystic Mocha.   It is not on a main street or located in a high traffic throughway but it does offer plenty of traffic. It is a neighborhood coffee shop primarily known to locals and off of the beaten path for unknown visitors.  The location is small with a half dozen tables on the inside and a number of lounge chairs in the yard. The inside is simple and doesn’t hold any expensive thrills or masterpieces of art but is comfortable enough for a few hours. However, one can feel comfortable in a place like this as not a single person has anything more to prove than the other.  The menu is somewhat limited with sandwiches, burritos, wraps, mochas, ice coffee and regular coffee. Yet this is quick eating and run type of place. Price is generally under $3 for a cup of coffee and $7.00 for an artichoke wrap. It is possible to order a breakfa
