One of San Diego’s most prolific coffee companies is announcing two new locations that will open this spring; Better Buzz Coffee Roasters, which already runs two popular cafes in Pacific Beach, will move closer to the beach with the launch of a 1,344-square-foot coffee bar at 822 Grand Avenue. Scheduled to debut in early May, it will feature drive-thru window and a rooftop deck with beach views and a covered seating area. On top of its espresso and specialty drinks, it will offer a substantial food menu that ranges from pastries and acai bowls to avocado toast and grilled sandwiches. Better Buzz will also introduce soft-serve ice cream, in flavors like matcha and coffee.

Slated to open by early June is a new cafe in downtown La Jolla at 909 Prospect Street. Featuring folding glass doors that open onto a wrap-around patio, this location will serve a full menu similar to the Hillcrest outpost.

Anchored by its production roastery in Vista, which delivers fresh coffee throughout the week to its satellite locations, Better Buzz operates branches in Mission Beach, Point Loma, Fashion Valley, Encinitas, and San Marcos in addition to its stunning multi-level corporate office and cafe in Hillcrest.

Marketing and purchasing coordinator Daniel Greig tells Eater that the company is planning to expand up the coast, and will open at least two additional locations by the end of 2019.
