Nice selection of teas and soda. The coffee was just alright but the smoothie was delicious.
Tea selection is excellent. I wish there were more coffee choices.
They have a great tea selection. Good price and service
Great selection of teas and coffee. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable! We were able to sample both coffee's before we picked which blend we wanted. The spicy brownie was to die for!! Definitely worth a visit!
Good tea and coffee. Staff was nice and price is reasonable.
they are very friendly and the coffee is heavenly
Poor, confused service. Ended up purchasing the wrong tea BC my cashier forgot my order. Also they made my drink twice admitted it was an accident and didn't offer me the mistake cup.
I wanted a cherry green tea and I was immediately pitched by the cashier on buy 4 oz get a free drink. I decided immediately to get 2 oz of the cherry green tea and left it with the cashier. I brought back a mango with only one oz left and had to find a third tea. I grabbed an unexciting Jasmine to fill the order. Walked out with my bag and didn't notice until it was too late they gave me 2 oz jasmine, 1 oz mango and forgot my cherry green tea. Sad to tell my husband remember the amazing cherry green tea I had bought, yeah you can't taste it they gave me Jasmine instead. Also not sure if I was charged for 4 ozs BC the no receipt option.
Love this place! On my way to old town for weekend getaway, and this is what I'm most looking forward to.
OK, so I'm a boring old man. But this place is wonderful.
Just wanted to thank you so much for your incredible service! Whenever we go to Old Town we stop in and I stock up on my White Champagne Raspberry Tea, but if we're not planning to visit before my supply runs out I order online. I just received my order of tea, and to my great delight you also included 3 samples of new teas I hadn't tried, but that smell wonderful! You always go above and beyond, whether I am there in person (one time you were out of my Champagne Raspberry in the store so one of your workers ran to the storeroom in another building to get me some!) or whether I order online. Shipping is always quick and the quality never fluctuates...always first rate teas!
Thank you for your generous gift with my order! I tell all my friends....I want you to stay in business!!
This shop has one of the best teas I've ever tasted, called Michelle's delight! This place is well managed, I will definitely be back soon!
The House has high quality product, reliable staff, & knows how to handle customers; they carry various and exotic teas, spices, honeys, & coffees; and the prices, portions, & expertise is remarkable. The House is perfect for a budding connoisseur.
Friendly staff. A HUGE variety of teas. A few samples available as well. Very tasty!
Dustin really took care of me and my family, free samples were delicious enough to get me to buy a bag! Then he helped us pick up a bag for our mom! It smelled amazing! Very impressed, great service!
Dustin and Mariah took great care of us. Dustin suggested some great teas and answered all of my question. This made a great gift for my mother!!! Thanks Dustin and Mariah!
I had a weird experience here because after I ordered my coffee, the girl that took my order didn't tell me which direction I would pick up my order from. After I paid, the girl in the front continued talking to costumers and I was worried about my order not being done in a timely mannner because I had folks waiting for me outside. Thank god I didnt say anything because my order was soon ready and came from a room in the back next to the cream and sugar. An odd experience, but the store is nice and I might consider coming back if I need a coffe fix in the area.
S/O to Dustin and Mariah for the great service i myself im not a big tea fan but they suggested some really great teas and im a big fan now!!!!
I absolutely love the selection of teas and have purchased them in the store and ordered them to be shipped out of state to my home. Yesterday I tried to place another $$ order and their website warned me that they were no longer on a secured platform so I was open for hackers trying to obtain important personal information. I then called them directly and went to VM 3 times to place an online order. I then called the front desk and was told they were too busy to get someone to take my online order. Then I sent an email to their website administrator explaining about their unsecured website and have still yet to hear back. Guess I'll have to find another place to purchase my teas :(.
I love the coffee I can find here. I ended up leaving San Diego, but can still order online and the products I get are always timely and accurate.
Very historic with great atmosphere! The staff were lovely, helpful and knowledgeable. Highlander grog coffee is delicious, I get a bag or two every time I come. Great selection of teas as well.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. Their tea is super delicious and high quality. The service is fantastic and all the people who work there are super friendly and knowledgeable.
The staff was awful. I went on a Saturday and it was busy with 2 workers behind the register. They were two guys too busy ogling a couple of girls to give anyone else service. I had to wait to get service from someone in the back. Finally when I did, their ice tea was overtly sweetened. I didn't even get a choice to sweeten it myself. Save your money. Go to Starbucks!
I always make a point to stop here during my visits to San Diego. Their coffee is absolutely delicious. My favorite is Highlander Grog. They also have amazing teas.
I've always found common teas with very uncommon flavors. On a recent trip to San Diego this was a must-do on my list. Only reason not a five star there's no place to sit and spend the spend the day visiting and sipping tea.
Top notch coffee and tea store in Old Town. My wife and I enjoyed sampling the teas, the Grog is yummy and the staff is always friendly and pleasant to talk to. Fun to hang out in Old Town at The American House for yummy coffee and tea. :-)
Awesoeme tea selection.
My favorite is turmeric zest!!!!
Very helpful and friendly staff.
I will be back soon.
Great place! Will definitely return. Best Kona blend I've ever had. Looking forward to trying the teas.
Purchased the coconut vanilla and Kir Quincy tea. Both were so good we went back for free refills. Purchased both of them so we could enjoy at home.
I'm sorry to do this as a review, but I can't figure out how else to get a hold of you. I placed an online order a few weeks ago, and have not received the item, nor any details about when I might receive it. I've sent an e-mail without a response. I called the store and selected the option for online orders, but it took me to a voicemail that was full. I tried connecting to the store itself, and got a voicemail that had not been set up yet. I'm just wondering if I will ever get my order or if I can get a refund.
Nice place for some tea or coffee. I thought there would be a lot more tea to choose from, but it was fine.
It had a great selection of teas and coffee. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The Chocolate was amazing. I highly recommend checking this place out.
Very nice place best teas and coffees and very friendly staff
Good coffee, comparable to the coffee from Barefoot Cafe. Nothing like a good soy latte on a cold rainy day with your friends. This place is very modern and chic. Not the dark brown classy singer song writer coffee house feel... but I like that feel. But this place is still really good, love the coffee.
One of my favorite spots in all of Old Town.
American House Coffee is an awesome local coffee option.
This location in particular is a bit hard to find. You have to turn right off of market street and turn left to get inside. You'll see the blue bottle logos in the window. It's not a great place to spend time or work, given that it has very few places to sit and isn't the best area.
I'd recommend leaving ~10 min for your drink to be prepared. All that said, it is great coffee!
Fantastic coffee to get me going all day long! This place is a must stop whenever I come to SF. Pro tip: go early!
They have a good selection of loose leaf teas.
Good tea and service. Would definitely recommend.
Great tea ! My favorite place in SD to get a nice cup of tea or get some to go.
They had 3 sample for you to sample. Nicely layout of teas from around the world.
A ton of teas to choose from. All loose leaf. Friendly staff that's happy to help you find what you're looking for. They also ship, so if you find something you love and are just visiting, you can still get your fix.
We loved this place! The staff is so friendly and helpful, we tasted a few samples and ended up purchasing the empress blend black tea and the blood orange herbal tea. They are both really good.
Check the place out if you're in the area!
Great coffee and good atmosphere. Just don't expect a seat. Lots of customers that will set their stuff down at a table before they go stand at the back of a 10 person line. Happened with a full table three times in the last two weeks. They should put a sign up, but both times I've asked the customers who did it said, "well, I want a seat".
I love coffee. I love American House Coffee & TeaI have been to several locations all over the state. A few here in the Bay Area LA SD. Every time has been a pleasurable experience. I will be back to this location soon!
Amazing selection and displays of teas. Samples are fresh and you are free to smell each jar of tea. The girl at the counter was more than helpful in recommending and helping us checkout. Will 100% come again :)
I really like this place and try kir quency tea.The tea taste so good.👍
The best place to buy loose leaf tea in San Diego! Amazing flavors with a massive selection. If you are an avid tea drinker you must check this place out. You can smell all the teas, buy a cup of it to try if you wish or buy some tea leafs to take home. They also have spices and other things but the tea is why I go. It's fantastic!
Amazing coffee and tea shop! They really know their stuff and take their time educating people on their products
Delicious coffees and teas. Also kind and helpful staff
I live in Dallas, TX. We visited San Diego 2 years ago and stopped in for coffee. It is some of the best we’ve had! I wanted to help make this quarantine more pleasurable so one Saturday morning, I placed an order 4 bags of coffee and a package of Tea. I had my order by Monday. I couldn’t believe it!! You guys ROCK!
Blueberry coffee is our favorite 😃☕️☕️
We are sure missing this
Place. The best selection of Coffee, Tea and Spices. Everyone that comes from out of state leaves addicted to our favorite flavor coffee. Highlander Grog.
Great little breakfast/ brunch spot to hit! Coffee is great and comes with picture worthy latte art. I love love love their toasts! I've tried almost all of them and they do not disappoint. They are open for pick-up (and I believe delivery) during COVID and only allow 3 people in the cafe at a time. I ordered online through yelp (grub hub) and my food was ready for pick up at the exact time it was promised. If you're ever in SF, stop by Home- you will NOT be disappointed.
"Have you been here before? No? Welcome Home." was the perfect greeting for this place!
The cute, colorful, IG-gold lattes might draw you here, but the quality coffee beans and super friendly baristas won me over to become a loyal "Homie."
I drive over an hour to get my favorite coffee's from here and love it. I'd give it a 5 star but I have been trying for over a week to call them. When you select 3 to be connected to the store, it says "please wait while we connect you" and then nothing. I call back and hit 2 for internet orders and it does the same thing. I can't drive down there for a question unfortunately and would love to be able to speak to someone before making the drive out there. I've done that before and they didn't have the coffee I needed. Would have been great to be able to check with them via phone before driving there.
Great teas, great coffee, great service. Really love this little gem in Old Town.
I'm not really much of a tea or coffee connoisseur, but even I have to acknowledge how amazing this place is. We recently stopped by while on vacation....read this and 210 more
