TERI Common Grounds Café & Coffee Bar | Est. 2021

Your Neighborhood Spot for Delicious Eats, Drinks,
Great Company and Fun!

Dine. Shop. Relax.

Your patronage has a meaningful purpose!

TERI Common Grounds Café was recently named as one of Redfin's Top 10 destinations for unique dining, live music, and educational experience. Moreover, all profits go towards TERI’s programs for San Diego’s special needs population.


One way to support TERI is by purchasing organic and fresh produce in our Café from our organic farms. And that's not all, as you slurp on a delicious Soup of the Month, feel free to browse our small but amazing retail space where each product is brought to you by our talented clients, local businesses and artisans. Either way, shopping at the Café positively impacts your community.

Super cute coffee shop! The location is really secluded and beautiful! I ordered my usual iced Americano with oat milk, and it was delicious. I also got a ham and cheese bagel, which was also really good. Will definitely return to try other food items. Service was great!!!

As a retired school psychologist, I cannot recommend TERI & this coffee shop highly enough. This is the best model I've ever seen throughout the country. Please support this amazing place. Miracles happen here! Food: 5

Service: 5 Atmosphere: 5
