Independent Coffee Cafes are arguably the last strong hold of Small Business in the US. They were strategic in the American Revolution, and now one could argue strategic to keeping the independent soul of small business alive in the US.

Independent Coffee Houses and Cafes are bastions of creativity for those that use them as office space, galleries, or community platforms for expression of all kinds from music to social causes.  As such, they are great partners for increasing awareness of local and global social responsibility in our communities.

Independent cafes also support other small businesses by sourcing from local Dairies, Farms, Bakeries, and Creators of artisan chocolates as well as drinkware and crafts, so remember that shopping local for the Holidays does more for our San Diego community than enrich a few shareholders, it ensures a thriving local economy and the livelihood of many small businesses and people. Keep San Diego's Small Business thriving! Drink local, drink often, the weekend of Saturday, November 29, and all year long!
