Upgrade Your Saturday at the Surf Check

Editor's Rec: Archana Ram loves this retro trailer turned coffee stand on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard


Published:

On Saturdays you’ll likely find me at The Surf Check, a coffee stand on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard that serves coffee, acai bowls, and pastries out of a retro trailer. The routine is to put my name on the list at next door’s Little Lion, a charming but tiny bistro along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard that sometimes has hour-long waits. Their breakfast menu is worth it, and the extra time means I can grab a cup of Bird Rock Coffee Roasters from Surf Check and walk Sunset Cliffs. Coffee, food, and the cliffs all before lunch? Check.

1404 Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, Ocean Beach
