Welcome to the Pannikin. We have been in the business of serving the community with all of its coffee and tea needs since 1968. The La Jolla outpost of popular coffeehouse chain offers quirky decor & artisanal drinks, plus brunch.
Pannikin Coffee and Tea opened in 1968 in one of the cottages at the Green Dragon Artist Colony. Bob SinClair started roasting coffee and blending teas selling them wholesale out of his home. Bob’s vision of roasting craft coffee and blending the best teas and spices was one that would be followed by the likes of many craft coffee joints
Obscured from clear view by trees and fancy car dealerships, Pannikin is a safe haven for the old, the young, and the black sheep of the family. We are a community of artists, dreamers, and outcasts.
