About Us

We strive to bring back the traditional local coffee shop, with friendly service and one simple goal: Brew quality beans into simply good coffee with a smile at an affordable price. We are conveniently located off the 5 Freeway near Old town next door to a local watering hole, Home & Away, 2222 San Diego Ave. Open 7 days a week with walk-up service.

Independently owned and operated, owner Morgan is passionate about connecting with customers on their morning commute and forming bonds over the waking effects of a quality cup of coffee. Morgan brings valuable North Western drive-thru coffee experience and expertise down to San Diego. Specialties include quick roasted “white coffee” with a unique flavor and even more unique caffeine buzz. California Bean has a unique fixed menu but also offers monthly and seasonal specials to always try new things and offer something special to new and returning customers.
