Experience Our Music-Infused Culture
No matter where you go in our San Diego cafe, music history surrounds you. Memorabilia from the greatest talents in music adorn the walls, including a vintage fabric tank top worn by Gwen Stefani on No Doubt's 1996 -1997 “Tragic Kingdom” world tour, a Gibson Les Paul Joe Perry Model Guitar signed by all the members of Aerosmith, and a boxing glove used on stage as a prop by Sugar Ray.
