Owner Letty Davila and her family launched Eastbrew Cafe in Eastvale, CA in January 2020 just ahead of the looming pandemic closures. Now under Ownership of daughter Elizabeth Ibarra, they’re bringing the family-run coffee shop to the East Village. The new mobile cafe station is going in at 722 11th Ave and G Street, neighbors to a live/work complex of modern apartments and other growing retail sites.
What Now San Diego spoke with Davila about the new location and how her family will bring their Eastbrew traditions to San Diego. “We were looking for a second location and we love this area and the city,” Davila explains.
“In Eastvale, we make our pastries in house, sourcing our eggs and milk from local farmers. Small businesses helping each other. We’re looking to find more local farms willing to work with us near the new location.”
They already have a connection with local coffee roasters, Cafe Virtuoso. Davila says, “It’s great to be close to them, near Petco Park. I’ve tasted a lot of coffee and their quality stands out. We taste the difference.” Since connection and buying local is so important to Eastbrew, they look forward to connecting with local artists and allowing them to display and sell their creations through their cafe space.
The original Eastvale location serves a brunch menu, with salads and sandwiches along with their from-scratch pastries. Due to the size of the new space, their menu will be slimmed down to coffee and pastry service but they eventually plan to offer sandwiches down the road.
Hiring is underway at the new cafe, albeit slow with the current hiring challenges that the food service industry is experiencing. Eastbrew Cafe are planning their opening for the end of October.
