Mexican Coffee & Bakery Chain La Borra Del Café To Open Several San Diego Locations

October 21, 2021

As part of an aggressive expansion into California, Mexican coffee shop chain La Borra Del Café is opening several locations around San Diego. 

La Borra Del Café was founded by Leon Reffreger Alonso in 2012 in Mexico's Guadalajara region and has since grown to include 70 locations across Mexico, with plans to open 200 branches throughout California in the next decade. Inspired by a novel of the same name by Uruguayan writer Mario Benedetti, the cafes offer a menu of Mexican pastries like conchas and orejitas, as well as strudels, salads, toasts, frappes, Mexican hot chocolate, and coffee.

There are currently plans to open La Borra Del Café outposts at 1025 Prospect, Suite 150, in La Jolla, and at 226 5th Avenue & 409 F Street in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Each cafe will be designed to reflect its specific neighborhood and operate as welcoming social and public work spaces. The coffee drinks and food offerings are also unique to each branch, as the brand typically partners with an area female baker to produce its baked goods. 

There is no timeline currently available on when the San Diego locations of La Borra Del Café will open. For more information, visit
