Zumbar Coffee & Tea is a small coffee shop and roaster in San Diego with quite a popular following. After hearing several ringing endorsements, we felt compelled to check it out for ourselves, especially since we’ve been trying to make our way through the coffee scene in San Diego.
It’s tucked away in a small plaza in Sorrento Valley. During our visit, the place was absolutely packed. In addition to their coffee selection, they also offering a small case of pastries.
This is my usual espresso drink of choice. It came out beautifully. I loved the finishing coffee art as well as the taste of the drink overall.
We also chose a chocolate croissant to share from the pastry case. I believe their pastries are from Opera Patisserie.
Another beautifully finished drink. The cup was also huge, even for a typical latte. I did find the milk level a little too much though.
Overall, we had a really nice first visit to Zumbar and we plan on being back here again to work our way through more of the coffee menu. The staff was nice and the prices were quite reasonable. I do wish they had slightly more seating, either inside or out as it was standing room only when we went. But we’d come back regardless.
