Cafe of the Moment: The King’s Craft Coffee Co

14530 Espola Rd

Poway, CA 92064

Simply put: we think this is the best coffee and tea shop in Poway! It’s a true hidden gem, hidden down at the end of Twin Peaks Rd. It’s the perfect stop after a morning spent hiking Iron Mountain or Lake Poway (AKA Potato Chip). Not only does this coffee shop have great atmosphere if you plan to spend the morning catching up with a friend or getting some work done, they serve outstanding drinks and baked goods! Plus, all of the servers are super friendly and eager to help you pick out a drink you’ll love.

First, the coffee: people love their lattes and espresso! Whether you want a basic cup of coffee or something more adventurous, King’s Craft has you covered.

If you’re not a coffee drinker, they have plenty of delicious non-coffee options from their Mexican Hot Chocolate (Delicious) to the Lavender Chai Latte (Amazing) to their Iced Teas (yes, even the Iced Tea is worth writing home about!)

Of course, no cup of coffee or tea would be complete without a delicious, fresh-baked pastry. Their scones, muffins, and waffles are all bursting with flavor and are the perfect complement to your drink of choice! They also serve Cravory cookies so if you’ve been wanting a Cravory Cookie without the drive, you can get them at King’s Craft!

The parking lot is a bit small and is right next to a community soccer field, so if you’re visiting on a Saturday morning you might have to park along Espola Rd. But trust us when we say that The King’s Craft Coffee Co is worth the trip!

One more thing we should mention: The King’s Craft is locally owned and operated and they also donate a portion of their sales of select items to non-profit organizations and community youth programs!

 

The Pinteresting Five: Tree Bookcases
