There are many reasons to love coffee shops:
Reason 1: Community
Lumina Cafe: First and foremost, they know how to bring together a community. French, singing, craft, photography classes and a conference room rentable by the hour. Open mic nights and other events, free coffee perks and good salads.
Reason 2: Vibe
Red Cafee Good people, Volkswagen vibe with surf, skateboard, skates, lots of love in the garden and good coffee. I mean really, one of my favorites.
Reason 3: Espresso
Luwak: One of my favorite espresso blends, smooth and satin finish. Not much ambience but the coffee and service with a smile makes up for it to-go.
Reason 4: Sweets
B Cafe: Delicious treats, amazing 2-story space renovated from an old house. No wifi so bring a book or build a community of friends.
Reason 5: Wifi
Most comfortable place for me to work is the Infusion Cafe in Playas next to the bullring. Recliner chairs, tables and living room sofa area and plenty of electrical outlets. They should really charge me by the month.
And in Tijuana you have many many more excuses to visit all of them (because it’s just part of the culture now!).
