Just spent a lovely afternoon at Cafe 976. Had lunch and the Hot Caprese on sourdough with chicken added was mouth wateringly good. With the magnolia tree providing shade and the flowers everywhere I feel transported away from my busy day. The iced almond joy was so good I had a second one with the lemon bar. Caffeine and chocolate to keep you buzzing. That is seriously the best iced coffee drink I have ever had. Sometimes you have to switch to the Thai iced tea for a change of pace. Being a transplant, I love how friendly people are, both the customers and the servers. The table service is really an improvement over the old system and if you just want drinks or to go items you don't have to wait in that line anymore on the weekends. I love to bring out of town guests here. It really shows off what PB and San Diego is about, a relaxed good time.
Pros: Garden, ambience, distinctive food
