The Swell Café

San Diego

If you like your caffeine with a side of ocean breeze, this small-batch roaster is just a block from Mission Beach and has a big outdoor patio where you can breathe it all in. Swell is all about sustainable coffee and being as environmentally friendly as possible. Their coffee roaster is near-zero emissions, the place is lit with L.E.D. lights, they encourage "for-here" cups as opposed to the paper or styrofoam kind, and they recycle, which makes them pretty swell.
