Loved the fruit cups, the cranberry scones, the panini and smoothies. Very reasonable prices. Fresh pastries and a chance to eat outside. Highly recommend.

A casual quaint deli/coffee shop with delicious food. Arriving late at our hotel across the street we grabbed some quick sandwiches so fresh and yummy and then got some wonderful coffee and scones at 6 am the next morning before we took off. Nice patio and pleasant wait staff.

Had a business meeting and the client selected Brick and Bell for a coffee and some conversation, I am so totally the coffee fanatic, as my search for the perfect double latte will attest. I addition to getting almost the perfect latte, I did get some amazing pastries. Great service nice staff and cute place..

We were staying in a hotel close by and this coffee shop was open early and in walking distance. The croissant was delicious and the coffee was high quality.

We found this cafe on our first day and visited often. Great sandwiches, coffee and treats to enjoy. Scones are amazing!! It's in a great location to sit on the patio and enjoy the weather. A must see if visiting La Jolla.

Cozy and clean, I think people come here to relax and read, I really like the Ceaser Wrap and also tried the Turkey sandwich. You see everyone just be themselves and they do have some great pastries.

We happened upon this place upon arrival in La Jolla on the way to our hotel. They have great scones but also have a variety of other baked goods and refreshments. If you were hungry for a sandwich you could have those as well. There are tables and chairs outside to enjoy your purchase.
