What a cool place! Lots of really cool antiques and books. The staff was very very kind and the coffee was some of the best you'll find in San Diego. The only complaint I heard from anyone was that their cappuccino had foam and cinnamon in it... Apparently they've been drinking Starbucks too long and forgot what a cappuccino is! Overall an awesome place.

Happy to see Bassam is still serving quality coffees, teas and yum yums despite being pushed out of the downtown location by evil corporate Starbucks. It's like everything just picked up and moved several blocks up 5th Street; drinks yum yums & friendly staff. Best coffee shop in San Diego!!!

Hands down favorite coffee shop in San Diego. One of the few places where you can feel like you are in Europe. I love spending Saturdays inside their unique interior, which holds a piano, books piled to the ceilings, a glass case of crystals and gems, and grandpa tchotchkes like old wood sailboats, bottles and cigars. My favorite treat is their iced Vietnamese coffees, which are served in stemless glassware and topped with a lovely garnish. They are sweet, but still bitter enough to taste like coffee which I really enjoy. I've also enjoyed their cheese platters and baked goods. This is a favorite destination to bring out of town guests and/or a date for a romantic night cap.

real coffee, distinctive and well-made, not generic in any sense. yummy breakfast menu. staff are pleasant but un-pretentious and are happy to leave you alone if that's what you seem to prefer. authentic eclectic atmosphere with tables strewn throughout the place in nooks and crannies. it would so be my regular haunt if i lived here! rock on Café Bassam!

This place was almost as hipster as it gets, from the baristas' clothing, to the antiques, paintings, furniture, and books everywhere. I loved it. The Iced Vietnamese definitely cured my craving for a sweet fix of caffeine on national coffee day! and the Hazelnut latte was also delicious, I can't wait to go back!
