Better Buzz Coffee Roasters Unveils New Pacific Beach Location Featuring Matcha, Soft Serve & Rooftop Patio

May 27, 2019

Better Buzz Coffee Roasters will unveil its third coffee bar location today in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood, and the newest outpost has an expanded menu featuring soft serve ice cream, as well as a rooftop patio with views of the nearby ocean.

Founded by then-college students Tim Langdon and Stephanie Garden as a coffee cart in 2002, Better Buzz Coffee Roasters opened its first brick-and-mortar location at 1909 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach in 2007. The company has substantially grown over the past twelve years and now has outposts in Point Loma, Mission Beach, Encinitas, San Marcos, a hub at Fashion Valley Mall in Mission Valley, its roasting facility in Vista,  a gigantic 8,000 square-foot, two-story headquarters in Hillcrest, and now three branches in Pacific Beach.

The newest Better Buzz is located across from the beach in the standalone building which last housed Crazy Bowls & Wraps that was previously slated to become a drive-through pizzeria. The building has undergone a complete renovation to transform it into a modern coffee house with a drive through window and rooftop lounge. Like other area locations, the new PB spot will serve a menu of coffee and espresso drinks, including drip coffee and cold brews, as well as a lineup of organic smoothies, matcha tea, and an expanded breakfast and lunch food menu with avocado toast, grilled sandwiches, paninis, muffins, cookies, bagels, pastries from San Diego's Bread & Cie, and a variety of acai bowls. The new location will also serve soft serve ice cream in unique flavors like vegan matcha.

A La Jolla outpost will also be opening this summer at 909 Prospect Street. The La Jolla Better Buzz will have folding glass doors and a wrap-around patio. At least two additional Better Buzz locations, including one already secured for Escondido, are expected to open in North San Diego County by year's end. Justin Earley, Senior Vice President at Capital Real Estate Ventures, Inc., represents Better Buzz in securing the ideal spaces to launch new locations.

The new Better Buzz sits at 822 Grand Avenue in Pacific Beach. For more information, visit
