The baristas at All The Perks Espresso Caf? in La Mesa are even more passionate about coffee than they are about wordplay. So much becomes apparent after just a sip of their signature creation, the Perk-u-ccino. This delicious concoction brightens mornings with a blend of crushed ice, espresso, and sweet add-ons such as chocolate and peppermint or strawberry and banana. If you need an extra pick-me-up or get-me-over-that-wall, you can also opt for a sweet mexican mocha made with chocolate and spices. Customers may also choose from a large selection of teas, served hot or cold. But coffee and tea aren't the only perk at this cozy La Mesa shop. Complement your cold or steamy beverage with a breakfast wrap or a freshly made sandwich, both available all day long.

That woman playing the acoustic guitar onstage at Java Joe's just might be the next big thing. As the San Diego Troubadour noted, owner "Java Joe [Flammini] loves music and he loves people and he has an enviable track record of successfully, memorably bringing the two together." It's hard to argue with that: the shop has helped artists such as Jewel and Jason Mraz develop their careers, prompting U-T San Diego to ask, "Has any other San Diego music venue nurtured as many gifted young troubadours . . . as Java Joe?s?" The coffee shop has had many iterations since it opened in 1991, yet this dedication to the local music scene has remained constant. Still, the coffee should get some of the credit for the shop's success. The staff sources it from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, a "farm-to-cup" local enterprise that produces its beans sustainably. Patrons can also get a bite to eat or a smoothie to wash it down; either way, there's a good chance their order will be made with local and organic ingredients.
