Have yet to figure out how they are able to make their sandwiches so flavorful with such simple ingredients and recipes, but they cracked the code. The sandwich line absolutely knocks it out of the park every time. Pastry's are AMAZING!!! Seriously if you're thinking of stopping at Starbucks, try out a local small business instead. The first time I came through, the owner actually knew many of the customers by name. PET FRIENDLY and...

This place is very, very good. The Italian is also incredible and the coffee is best I've had in the area. Plenty of space to sit and work.

This is a lovely coffee shop in Windansea in La Jolla. My friend and I had the best coffee we have ever tasted made especially for us by Ciara. If you are out exploring gorgeous La Jolla, stop in and enjoy!

I love this spot! Adorable coffee shop right by the beach. Their vanilla latte is my favorite, along with their donuts which are from the famous VG Bakery in Encinitas. For food, the avocado toast and Italian sandwich hit the spot.

Service was very friendly and pretty quick. There were a handful of customers dining in and they all seemed to be enjoying their food and drinks. They have a few tables outside as well. I'll definitely be back to try their fancy toasts and sandwiches.They do have a rewards program (through Toast) and you can sign up when you pay with your credit card.

Meet Abby

Hi! I’m Abby, the owner of Rosemonts Cafe, located in the beautiful Windansea neighborhood of La Jolla, California. I was born and raised on Cape Cod, MA where the tourism industry is booming in the summertime. I started working as a waitress at the most popular restaurants on the Cape, and I quickly fell in love with the hustle of the restaurant industry.

After graduating high school, I moved to attend Florida Gulf Coast University, where I studied Hospitality & Resort Management. Throughout my twenties, I was constantly on the move, exploring over 30 different countries and even living in 6 states and 4 other countries.

In between my travels, I would often find work in the hospitality industry somewhere in its peak season to make and save as much as I could for my next trip. Prior to opening Rosemonts, I was living in Denver where I had started a Meal Prep Delivery Service out of my studio apartment kitchen in 2017. I had moved to Colorado from Miami Beach because I loved snowboarding, but the ocean had always been calling me back, so in 2018, I moved to La Jolla and opened a second location for my business. For years, I was back and forth from Denver and San Diego before eventually selling both business locations. Of all the places I have lived and visited, I can honestly say La Jolla is the most special, so I always knew it was a place I’d want to plant some roots.

I moved into the Windansea neighborhood in July 2020, and every day for months, I would walk by this empty space, which is now Rosemonts, wondering why nobody had turned it into anything. I would often daydream about what I would do with it if it were mine. I made my first inquiry to the realtor in March 2021, finally toured the space in October, and put in an offer to lease in December. Two months later, on 2/2/22, I got the keys to the vacant space, and here we are! Rosemonts Cafe opened on April 30th, 2022.
