Conveniently located, great coffee option other than Starbucks, owner was friendly and relaxed and introduced himself by name, café is nicely sized and offers food and drinks. Seems to be a bar and computer repair place as well. Creative space! :)
Met a friend here and really enjoyed this place. The have all sorts of smoothies, teas and organic coffees as well as a good variety of breakfast and lunch items. I enjoyed the french toast and fruit smoothie. The place feels very comfortable with music playing in the background that was not overbearing. They have a great selection of organic teas and coffee so I will definitely had back again. Just too many good things on the menu.
Really enjoy studying at this place. They have a great selection of teas, smoothies, and pastries :)
I LOVE this place. It has quickly become a tradition for me to go here and take advantage of their delicious food and beverages. They have kombucha on tap which is awesome! (I recommend the raspberry flavor) I also love the smoothies they have, my favorite is the green hornet; it even has avocado! Then the Acai Bowls are also delicious. I love the atmosphere, the people are nice and actually care about their customers. Love this place. Can't say it enough.
Nice atmosphere, great panini sandwiches!
Cool place in La Mesa. A coffee shop with comedy, performance nights, and they even sell wine and beer.
Awesome coffee, espresso, smoothies and food! Try the Pacific bagel sandwich!
Their chicken n veggie panini is delicious
Great coffee and smoothies. Creative computer themed names for the menu items. Very friendly staff. I come here about once a week.
Calm, relaxed environment. Chill with wifi, great food with ample drinks on the menu. Check it out!
Went to a comedy show and the setting was great. Customer service was good and got things out of the kitchen promptly.
Awesome café. Went in for a smoothie stayed for the food. They even have vegetarian and vegan options! Must try.
Friendly staff, good food, slow service.
Best public place to work in san diego. Nice atmostphere, great food, healthy options, and good wifi.
The lady in charge is extremely rude the food is greasy, flavorless, and putrid yet they charge insane amounts of money. When you buy fries the condiment cups are barely filled with ketchup and when you request more they sass you and make you pay 50 cents for another cup though you've already paid for the food. It's a terrible place in terms of hospitality and food quality so I would advise any sane human being with self-respect and working taste buds to avoid this establishment at all costs.
Spacebar is a nice place to go when you want a bite to eat, a nice cup of coffee(or a beer), and some wifi to do some work. 2 fridays during the month you can come for a comedy show too!
Very limited menu. No cocktail sauce for shrimp or calamari! Waitstaff was great tho!
Nice, clean place. Excellent food and drink selection.
Nice people. Good food. Healthy options.
I went there today only because a group of us were talking about the best places to go for Acia Bowls. This was not one of them.
Worst Acia bowl I have ever had in flavors and portion. Will never go there again, saw so many health violations. Staff was nice enough, but the gal who rings the register and takes money also cuts up your fruit without gloves. Even worse, she cuts them on the dish drain portion of a small stainless steel sink, that I saw other things placed on. So gross! Then after blending the Acia instead of using a spoon to get it out of the blender (which would have been so simple) instead she kept banging the side, and after only half would drop into the bowl, then proceeded to add tap water to the second half swishing it around to get it to pour in the bowl. Fortunately I got it to go, but I opened it in my car to look at it and it was all watery. Drove 4 minutes to my client's home, and removed the fruit to rinse them (who knows what cross contamination was on that sink).
The flavor of the acia wasn't just watered down by the tap water, but even the center part that made it in the bowl before the water tasted like mostly blended ice, very little acia flavor. The fruit consisted of four slices of banana (half small banana), two small strawberries sliced up. There was very little granola, and I had to pay a dollar extra for a tiny sprinkle of coconut flakes and slivered almonds that may have equaled two whole almonds if put together. Standard price without the extras is $6.95. Then .50 cents extra for each additional item that in my opinion should be standard in an acia bowl. Topping additions include coconut, almond slivers, blueberries, and bee pollen. Bowl is small and will not fill you up, especially if you have to pour out half the watered down smoothie as I did.
Friendly staff and a great place to enjoy a quite cup of coffee. They also serve breakfast and lunch and a few dinner items as well.
Fun coffee bar and panini place. Spacey decor and great place to hang out.
LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Food is great and the service is wonderful!! 😆
Surprisingly delicious. But I thought this place was for computer parts or something.
I really like singing here. It's a real nice room, and I like the sound system. There is plenty of seating and power outlets on the walls. The espresso is tasty and they have good food. They also serve beer and wine. Nice mellow atmosphere and cool people working here. I enjoy coming here on Friday nights.
Excellent, relaxed family environment. Took wide and children. Two children and 3 adults, dined in and had 4 beers for less than $40.
Very, very good food & beverages. Owner & mngr. R very accommodating,& internet is very easy to use.
Great service. Lovely teas. Parking is so so.
Small fair. Live music. Nice owner and friendly employers.
Food is great. Staff is super friendly. I always have a good time when I come here. I love coming here for dates :)
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but more importantly-- the staff were so great! Sheliece (I'm sorry for the wrong spelling) was so kind and costumer friendly and made a bangin' burger for me! My friend and I loved it and will DEFINITELY be returning and will bring others!
Great atmosphere, great food, great coffee, great people and great live open-mic music on Thursday evenings! The mountain panini was real good!
Nice coffee shop. Affordable prices and extensive menu
Stuffed bell pepper dish and paninis were awesome. Great customer service experience as well.
I love this internet cafe it is one of the best in the city it's small but it's very nice I just enjoy going there.
The menu is so intricate and fun, the decor is nice and I'd rather have a drink here than Starbucks any day. The smoothies are amazing too!
My friends and me enjoy Spacebar. Great food, coffee, tea, or a nice place to chill.
I love spacebar. Great place to meet up for a quick meeting, great food, and free access to the internet.
My daughter comes to this place a lot and recommended I give them a try. I like it. I liked the atmosphere and decor of the place. The counter person who helped us was cordial. My wife and I each had our own acai bowl. You get a lot of food for what you pay. I'll be going back to try some of their other menu items.
Great, healthy food with pleasant staff. Coffee and tea is sustainably sourced and delicious!!
Really nice place, great events and open mics. Friendly staff and comfortable environment.
I've passed this place for years. Never knew it was so cool. Ordered a acai bowl, was delicious!
Food was good. Service was not great rude cashier seemed annoyed to be workinghere .used profanity at coworkers.
I had the most beautiful night at Thursday Open Mic nite. My friends Becky and Chris took me there for my BIRTHDAY !
The owner Frank was so kind and did an amazing job cooking and serving the guests. We all ate Paninis and buffalo chicken fries cooked to perfection.
Everyone of the musicians were kind and I was encouraged by their singing and playing originals and covers. When I got up to play my songs I was warmly received by the crowd.
A nice little space that offers good food and a small stage space. Really friendly employees, too. I'll definitely come again.
Went in looking to see a friend who does stand up comedy. It was a miscommunication about it being open mic.So we decided to stay away, glad we did. The show was neat and we enjoyed ourselves. We didn't order food , we just drank beer which was good. The waiter and waitresses were great and attentive. The host and hostess were great! It's a nice spot good interior and comfortable. I would come back again.
This is my favorite spot near home! I call it the one stop shop lounge. Most during the week you can go grab a delicious bite breakfast/ lunch cooked meal. My favorite breakfast is the chicken and waffles. In the evening on weekends there’s always great entertainment you can go and have some wine. OH YEAH!!! THE OWNER FRANK IS AMAZING 🎉. parking is good and it’s such a beautiful neighborhood. Definitely beats any nearby Starbucks.
My mother had her 90th birthday party here. Family came from all over the country. They accommodated all of them with a nice solid prepared menu. Good food and Patricia was wonderful
Enjoyed the music over a nice glass of Cab and charcuterie platter. Also liked seeing artwork from local artists!
Space Bar is my favorite casual coffeehouse in SD. They also serve craft beers, wine, and kombucha on tap. They have a multitude of salads and sandwiches that are cooked to perfection. Thursday and Friday night are open mic nights which is a lot of fun. The performers are just so full of joy. I highly recommend this place if you just want to chill
I love seeing the growth of this place! I love what they offer and their beautiful Cafe.
Nice quaint little place with great food and nice friendly service. Wine tasting and music most Wed. nights.
Not a family friendly joint-- they do not have high chairs. My wife and two young kids were met with what I would consider a rude, unwelcoming introduction to this "internet cafe". We would have spent a good bit of money and most likely returned in the future, but our server (with headphones on?) seemed indifferent or willing to help us at all. So we left and won't be returning. Just wanted to let other parents out there know that they won't accommodate for children, and I think that deserves 1 star.
Great coffee / tea shop with loads of great events! I've attached a picture of the current event line-up as of June 4th, 2019.
Real Good food. Nice waitress and bartenders. We waited a very long time to be seated though...but worth it. They need to open another one close by.
Great food and friendly service. A real hidden gem. Could use more natural lighting in the back room area.
Although a little lacking in atmosphere, they more than make up for out in great food and drink choices... Things you might not expect from a typical coffee shop type restaurant.
Excellent burger and fries, smoothies, wine and craft beers, and music most Saturdays.
They are kind of a compact, everything choice.
Good panini sandwiches and craft beers. A little cramped, but the food more than makes up for it. Interesting fusion atmosphere, good staff.
It is nice. Barista was nice. I got a green juice it was tasty, would get again
Amazing service from Jasmine. She's the best at making any kind of coffee and the food here is really good. I usually order the loaded cheese fries or the BBQ chicken wings
I came in around noon, my friend and I split a bagel and I ordered a cappuccino. The bagel was decent but my cappuccino was literally half foam, I had to scoop so much of it out. The reason for the two stars is for the service, the lady working was very unfriendly and didn't seem to really know what she was doing. I didn't mind waiting 15 minutes for my coffee, but she didn't say a single word to us and then hid in the far back corner on her phone. I was underwhelmed.
Acai bowl is the best I've had not to big not to small and you can add kiwi! Also the green drinks w protien and ginger is great after a workout. The owner ( I'm pretty sure he is the owner) was friendly and had a positive vibe. I'll be back.
It is difficult to find authentic matcha, but this shop can definitely be trusted! It is located in a shopping complex that has a parking lot (parking is charged so have cash/coins available). It is a small shop with some seats inside and outside so be open to standing or taking your food/drinks to-go.
My favorite place to have breakfast, also the coffee latte is really good. Good service, too.
Great service, friendly employees and best of all coffees are great.
As soon as things started opening up again I called around to some local coffee shops to see if any of them were open for dine-in so I could get out of the house to get some work done. This was the third place I called and the first one who was open for dine-in, and I'm SO GLAD they were, because I love this place, I've been coming here 2-3 times a week since I found them. The owner Frank and the rest of the staff are all super nice. They have a great cold brew coffee, and sometimes at the end of the day I'll get a beer because they have a wonderful beer selection as well. I'm meeting a buddy to try the food tomorrow, it always looks and smells so delicious. Also the music is great to vibe to. This is my spot for sure.
Really cool cafe with a diverse menu and great food!
Interesting little place - outdoor seating available
Give them a try. I like to the get the green smoothie and panini.
Almost a nice place. But the owner watches TV from across the room with the volume waaay up. "Could you turn that down please, it's cutting right through my headphones." "No, I'm watching my show!" Where did this guy learn customer service? Won't be going there again.
We waited over 40 minutes to get our food and it was still wrong. My wife's food was soggy on top of this. I do not recommend this place.
Really delicious acai bowls and a wonderful iced mexican mocha. I'll be back, for sure!
Great, friendly service too.
Really a beautiful restaurant and coffee bar. The Live music is really spectacular and the customers appear happy to be there.
This is my new hangout spot...read this and 173 more
