Not sure I’ll go back to Fig Tree Cafe in San Diego (except maybe to try their coffee trio) and here is why.
San Diego Neighborhood:
The Fig Tree Cafe off of Historic Decatur Rd. is located in a courtyard in the middle of Liberty Station at Point Loma.
When Did I Go to This Coffee Shop?
First week of October, 2019
What Drink Did I Get?
Iced Mexican Mocha
Let’s Talk About Coffee Taste:
Honestly, this was probably one of the worst drinks I’ve ever had. There was literally no a coffee taste. It was like milk. And, it was chunky! Maybe cinnamon clumps? Who knows, but it was gross!
It was also warm. I had to ask for a cup of ice to go with it.
Lukewarm chunky chocolate milk. Not a winner.
(Why didn’t I ask for it to be fixed? Partially because I didn’t want them to know I was reviewing them, and partially because I was engrossed in a great conversation)
I have no clue exactly how they made their drink, as it was a sit down cafe. I am assuming whomever made mine needed to relearn how to serve coffee.
One creative aspect, though, is that the had a coffee trio (like they do with beer). I highly regret not trying that out. Maybe the next time, if I can ever be convinced to go back?
Expensive! It was almost $6 for the drink and that didn’t include tip.
We were mostly on the outside, and it was nice in their patio. The service was poor, we got a few stink eyes from the waitresses and getting them to stop long enough to get me a straw wasn’t easy.
I have no clue if they have things you can buy, but I will say that their tomato soup and grilled cheese looked amazing, even though I didn’t get it. My guess is that this place is more of a food place.
Was it Social Good Coffee?
I don’t think the waitress knew if this coffee had any social good impact, but I had a great conversation with the local authors I was there with, about what fair trade coffee is!
As I mentioned, it was a local author meet-up (one is a tea drinker, so check out her tag on my post in Instagram!)
My Rating of the Fig Tree Cafe:
I’d definitely give the Fig Tree Cafe (in my one experience) only a 1 out of 5 for coffee!
