Chiefy Cafe’s Two New Locations

Puppy Chiefy Welcomes You to Two New Locations of Pet-Friendly, Family-Operated Chiefy Café in San Diego: The Best Coffee Shop in San Diego

Chiefy Café is now opening more trendy locations in San Diego to deliver the best unique, healthy, and creative coffee and brunch you will ever taste. Organic vegan coffees and yogurt-based gluten-free waffles are only a few of the specialty signature items on their menu, all for a fantastically affordable price.

Named Best Pet-Friendly Café in San Diego

by San Diego Reader, one of the Top 50 Places to Eat by Yelp, and covered by KPBS and FOX5 News, Chiefy Café has taken the city by storm. Their new Hillcrest and San Diego State University locations will cradle the same heartwarming story that has captured the hearts of San Diegans in Gaslamp: Chiefy the puppy and his desire to open the best coffee shop in his hometown of San Diego.

Owner Dani Nissan knows how to create connection out of chaos and success out of tragedy.

Chiefy Café, his own pandemic puppy, was inspired by his own dog: Chiefy, a welcoming fixture at the counter every day at work. Chiefy (with his parents!) has sniffed out the best mixture of coffee beans from around the world to offer creamy signature delicacies like the popular spiced Mexicano Latte. With a menu brimming with a range of sweet and savory brunch items from vegan to meat-lover friendly with every ingredient carefully chosen and masterfully put together, Chiefy Café guarantees something for everyone. 

Chiefy’s vegan and vegetarian options right now have already stolen the show

From their acai bowls and mouth-watering vegan sandwiches as well as gluten-free protein-packed Heavenly Waffle combinations that’ll have you craving more every visit.

To satisfy their loyal customers and their furry friends.

Chiefy Café has chosen two of the best central locations for customers to enjoy their addictive affordable delicious eats. Hillcrest and San Diego State University are ready to transform their brunch experience with Chiefy Café’s family atmosphere and unbeatable flavors.

so come to Chiefy cafe and as always, be sure to bring your favorite four-legged friend.
