Coffee lovers have a new spot to grab a cup of Joe in Point Loma: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is opening a store in the neighborhood on Thursday.
The coffee shop, located at 4175 Voltaire Street, will celebrate its grand opening at 2 p.m. with a ribbon cutting, free samples and giveaways. The event will be attended by San Diego City Councilmember Lori Zapf and the company’s caffeinated mascot, Mr. Ice Blended.
Organizers say grand opening giveaways will include $5 gift cards, T-shirts and coffee and tea tumblers, until supplies last.
For deal hunters looking to try the new coffee shop, “Happy Hour” will be held every day through Aug. 2 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. where patrons can order Ice Blended drinks for half-price. This offer is good at all participating The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations, too.
The company was born in Southern California 1963 and has grown to operate more than 1,000 stores in nearly 30 countries. In San Diego, there are more than a dozen The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations, including stores in Mission Valley, Del Mar, Carlsbad and Poway.
