Cold weather season is coming up and while Starbucks may be convenient places for you to get your caffeine, there are so many other spots that make better brews and also deliver a great environment to enjoy yourself at around San Diego county.

At Better Buzz coffee they say “Life is Better Buzzed.” Each Better Buzz location is unique it’s own way. They all have a modern coffee house design and atmosphere. From the lighting to your the art on the walls, Better Buzz has a distinct, cozy atmosphere that places like Starbucks can’t match. Their menu offers a wide variety of drink options from blended drinks to kombucha. They also serve a variety of fresh sandwiches, pastries, and acai bowls. Better Buzz is more than a place to get your coffee. The laid back and hip style of a coffeehouse will have you believing that life really is better buzzed.

Another option that you can stop by to relax on a chilly winter day is the Old California Coffee house in San Marcos. This coffee house has an old fashioned, western theme to it. From large wooden beams to the stone brick floors, natural lighting, and an outdoor fire pit it’s the right place to relax and enjoy a warm cup of joe.
