Lofty Bean

~Outdoor seating~

Are you having a bad day? A little cranky? Need a friendly face? If you're in need of a delicious cup-o-joe and alot of extremely cheery people stop into Lofty Bean in Encinitas. We were headin' to our usual coffee place when Phil said......"Hey, I saw a cool looking place the other day across from Encinitas Surfboards". I flipped a uturn and we headed back that way. I was in the worst mood! I know I know.....its Saturday, how could I be in a bad mood? But I was. It was hot out and all I wanted to do was hang in town and go to the beach but I had an event up in the mountains where it was going to be even hotter! Luckily we went to Lofty Bean and all my irritability was swept away. This is such a great spot! Right on the corner of HWY 101 just north of Encinitas Blvd.
Everyone is SUPER nice and my bad mood quickly turned into joking and laughing with the crew. Phil and I went back again on Sunday! Ha!
~Oatmeal with berries~
~American Panini~
~Phil - Very happy I obtained an attitude adjustment~
~Japanese drip tower~
I had the coffee from the Japanese drip tower. Its cool to look at and tastes even better!
~Indoor Lounge~
Locals and tourists alike have all made their way to Lofty Bean. We saw a few faces we knew from around town and while sitting outside on Sunday we met a nice group in town from Long Island, NY.
~Eric with "Charlie" the mascot~
Eric and Lofty Bean mascot "Charlie" are hysterical. Charlie was a ham as soon as I broke out my camera. He was messin' around until I said "Charlie smile" and he looked right at me with his best paparazzi pose he could muster. We are still laughing about it.

Meaghan makes the place fun. She has cool style and a great smile and boy can she make ya laugh. Thanks Meaghan cuz on Saturday I needed to laugh and you really saved the day for Phil! Total attitude adjustment within minutes. Thanks again!
~Meaghan - Super Barista!~
My panini was so good. The pickles make it! Mmmmmmmm love the seating outside too. We love the vibe at Lofty Bean and both the coffee and food are incredible.
~Angie very happy with her panini~


The decor is super warm and inviting. We both felt like we stepped out of Encinitas into a little slice of zen. 

So head to Lofty Bean and tell Eric Myers "PHIL & ANGIE" recommended you give it a try and remember to GO LOCAL!
