Spill The Beans Coffee & Bagels Location In The Works For San Diego's Ocean Beach

September 25, 2022

San Diego's Verant Group of bars & restaurants (Barleymash, Maverick's Beach Club) is planning several new locations of its morning-focused Spill The Beans Coffee & Bagels concept, including a branch opening in the heart of Ocean Beach.

The Verant Group opened the first Spill The Beans coffee house in summer 2017 as an adjacent cafe to compliment its The Smoking Gun bar and restaurant in downtown San Diego. A second location opened in the Lighthouse District of Seaport Village in late 2020. The cafe concept offers a menu centered around freshly made "California-style" bagels in non-traditional flavors and playful coffee creations from San Diego's Dark Horse Coffee Roasters.

A new branch of Spill The Beans will open next year in the former Union Bank drive through ATM building location on the corner of Newport Avenue & Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach. The OB location will be the first with a drive-through window. In addition to a creative variety of housemade bagels & cream cheeses, the eatery will also offer, coffee & tea drinks, taro lattes, kombucha & other soft drinks, chia bowls, pastries, infused compound butters and a menu of breakfast sandwiches.
New Spill The Beans branches are also in the works for Mission Valley, which will include a larger onsite dining area, as well as a location installing in the 1,212 square-foot space that previously housed Mama Mia's Italian restaurant on Balboa Avenue in Pacific Beach. Last year, Verant Group founder Joe Vaught purchased the 3,854 square-foot building that houses several condos and was previously occupied by The Patio on Lamont restaurant for approximately $3 million, as well as the space that last housed Mama Mia's Italian restaurant for $1,725,000.
Spill The Beans Coffee + Bagels is anticipated to open at some point in 2023 at 4827 Newport Avenue in San Diego's Ocean Beach. For more information, visit spillthebeanssd.com.
