Located on University Avenue, in North Park, this quaint coffee shop remains a favorite among locals for coffee, pastries, and just a place to curl up with a good book. Claire De Lune opens early and closes late daily. They also serve up some of the most creative and tasty coffee drinks in San Diego. Established in 1997, Claire De Lune caters to the college age crowd and hosts live musical acts quite often. So whether you’re looking for a relaxing night in a comfy chair, a casual coffee date, or your morning cup of joe, Claire De Lune is the coffee lounge for you.
Several weeks ago, a friend and I had breakfast at Claire De Lune. It has good coffee and OK breakfasts. We liked the music, but asked that it be turned down "a bit." The wait person returned to let us know that the manager said that she liked the music that loud and would not turn it down. The server was polite, just conveying that the manager's wishes come before the customer's comfort. With so many great coffee places from which to choose in that area, we were surprised by her attitude. We will not return.
