Located in a 1920s era cottage on the corner of Cass & Felspar, Cafe 976 is an institution in the Pacific Beach neighborhood that has been enticing San Diegans with its coffee drinks, rustic fare and beautiful, rose-filled patio for more than two decades. Over the course of its nearly century-long existence the space has gone from being a home to a school to an antique store, until finally becoming a coffee shop in 1993.
Cass Street Real Estate Holdings LLC, led by local developer Michael Turk, purchased the property in 2015. Although the space was initially listed for sale, we were informed by the owners that they are no longer looking to sell the property. We are not sure what happened to give cause the owners to have a change of heart.
Cafe 976 is located at 976 Felspar Street in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood.
