Krakatoa is located in a former Craftsman house in the heart of Golden Hill on 25th Street between B and C Streets. This unique and cozy cafe is nestled under the shade of a large fig tree, with a sizable patio deck that wraps around the front, side, and back of the building. Our patio is dog-friendly and we have a smoking section in back.
We offer free wireless during business hours and free parking can be found on the street or in our parking lot at the rear of the building.
The owners of this establishment keep it local and are responsible for such venues as the Casbah, Station Tavern, Live Wire, Starlite and The Whistle Stop – all San Diego institutions.
We proudly serve coffee and teas from Caffe Calabria, one of the finest roasters on the West Coast. Let us tantalize your taste buds with one of our espresso drinks or a fresh brewed medium, dark, or light roast drip coffee. We carry dairy and non-dairy milks as well as homemade whipped cream and a wide selection of flavored syrups to customize your drink.
With cookies, muffins, cakes, quickbreads, vegan and gluten-free options, and many other delectable treats, you may find it hard to decide. Be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram to see what we have this week!
We also offer a selection of tasty breakfast and lunch sandwiches, as well as salads and soups. Not only is our café named after a volcano but so are our sandwiches! These mouthwatering morsels burst with flavor and are served with homemade potato salad or fruit.
Krakatoa carries a wide selection of craft beer and wine by the glass. We also offer smoothies, fresh squeezed orange juice, water and sodas.
There is something for everyone and always a quality cup of coffee to help you start your day or see you through it. Thank you for supporting your neighborhood coffee shop and we’ll see you soon!
