Centrally located on Downtown Escondido’s historic Grand Avenue, Kettle Coffee & Tea is a neighborhood coffee shop committed to quality and great service. Kettle Coffee and Tea features fresh, locally roasted coffee in a variety of brewing methods and loose-leaf tea available by the cup or by the ounce. 

Careful attention is given to proper espresso extraction and milk steaming as an essential part of Kettle’s coffee program. Additionally, Kettle’s baristas craft unique drink recipes using natural ingredients, including our chai made from loose-leaf tea. To compliment our coffee & tea program we offer fresh locally baked pastries, as well as seasonally inspired sandwiches and salads.  Kettle’s food program always features unique and delicious provisions to pair with equally unique and delicious beverages.

Spring & Summer Menu is up!

We've put up the new seasonal menu and we're crazy about the Bahn-mi-ni, the Caprese Panini (a Kettle staple), the Farmer's Market Salad featuring arugula and fresh strawberries and the Heart Beet Salad with roasted beets and quinoa!

We've also brought back the Horchata Latte, the Cardamom Latte and introduced two new tea concoctions, one featuring Cascara, the dried coffee cherry, and local jam. The other features Tumeric and lemonade! 


Loose-Leaf Tea now available in 3 oz packages

We now offer our entire tea selection in 3 oz packages, most are certified organic and all are whole leaf teas or all natural tisanes. Our teas are carefully selected direct trade teas, chosen for their high quality and great tasting notes.
