Public Square Coffee House


Sadie Neville, Co-Editor in Chief

From its industrial chic decor to eccentric variety of coffees and pastries, Public Square Coffee House is the up-and-coming hangout of La Mesa.

Located on La Mesa Boulevard in the Village, Public Square is on the corner of pedestrian hubbub and foot traffic, giving it an optimal location for passers-by.

Whether you’re looking for a place to meet a client, or just a quick cup of coffee before school, Public Square has it all.

Their house Chai latte ties into the atmosphere with a sense of relaxation and harmony, and the pastries melt in your mouth.

Their minimalistic decor is guaranteed to declutter your brain, as you sip your coffee surrounded by greenery and white tile walls.

The food is served on wooden trays, and each cup of coffee comes attached with a pick-me-up printed note.

The coffeehouse provides ample indoor and outdoor seating. Along with that, a small stage is in the corner of the restaurant for nightly performances by local musicians and poets, along with options of open mic nights.

Coffee, culture, and cause is the name of the game for Public Square. They partner with the community’s local organizations, with a goal of helpful cause. The coffeehouse intends to bring La Mesa closer together in today’s busy society.

The staff is friendly and helpful, with willingness to customize your order and satisfy your tastebuds.

So, if you are looking for a cup of coffee that both tastes amazing and gives back, I sincerely recommend Public Square.
