About Us

Imperial Beach Pier

Imperial Beach Pier

We started a small deli and catering business in El Cajon back in 2005 in order to do what we love the most: COOK. In 2010 a storefront opened up in Imperial Beach and we jumped at the chance to expand our services into a full blown cafe by the beach. Since then, we’ve been brewing the best coffee in San Diego and cooking up some of the most delicious food in California. All of our fare is made from scratch and is often described as “comfort food” by our loyal patrons.
Our menu began with the basics, like coffee and breakfast burritos, but evolved over time to feature a variety of sandwiches, gluten free foods, vegetarian options, specialty drinks, soups, wraps, salads, breakfast combinations, muffins, cookies, cinnamon rolls, smoothies, milkshakes, espresso, hot meals, and cold ones. At the West Coast Cafe there’s something for everyone. If you can’t find what you want already on our menu, you’re welcome to create whatever you’d like using any of our available ingredients.

What We Do

At the West Coast Cafe we serve the best coffee in Imperial Beach along with specialty drinks that will easily have you ordering a second round. Our java is brewed using some of the highest quality beans available and our popular mocha mix is made on site.┬áIf you’ve been looking for a cafe that serves huge portions of delicious food, then you’ve definitely come to the right place! All of our menu items are large and in charge. Breakfast or brunch, meatless or meaty….at the West Coast Cafe you can have it all. We not only offer a wide variety of culinary creations, but we’re always happy to make any changes you prefer.
If it’s comfort food you’re looking for then weekends at the West Coast Cafe are made for you. That’s when we bring out some of our fan favorites, like our mouthwatering biscuits and gravy. We also offer seasonal menu items, like our famous acai bowl, so you only get the best selections at the right time of year.
Baking is something we do year round and there is no end to what you’ll find available at our counter. Cakes, muffins, cookies, cinnamon rolls, and specialty dishes all find their way into our ovens. If you want to be in the know about what’s coming out of our kitchen next, just follow us on social media to get the word before anyone else does.
Doing something big? Need somebody to cater? No problem! At the West Coast Cafe we also provide catering services and rent out our facility for events, like awards banquets. Our cafe is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the area, so there’s no better place to have an open mic night, host a party, or even have an art show. At the West Coast Cafe the possibilities are endless, so give us a call and we’ll be happy to oblige……that’s the West coast Cafe way!
