Fresh from the launch of its fifth location in The Beacon shopping center in La Costa, Lofty Coffee is continuing its North County expansion with a new cafe that will be coming to Carlsbad Village. It will be part of an upcoming project that will convert the longstanding Antique Mall buildings on State Street into a 23,000-square-foot retail and office complex.
The Carlsbad location is due in late 2020; its footprint inside State Street Commons will span an 850-square-foot interior with a 28-foot ceiling and a 650-square-foot private patio. Lofty Coffee founder Eric Myers told Eater that they are also planning on sidewalk seating. It will serve Lofty’s full kitchen menu with a rotating selection of fresh roasted coffee and just-baked pastries delivered daily from its main roastery in Encinitas.
