Cosmos Coffee Café
- 8278 La Mesa Boulevard, La Mesa, CA 91941 | Directions
The best place to get your Friday night going early is Cosmos in La Mesa Village. The coffee’s great, the sandwiches are fine, and from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., the Sam Johnson Jazz Trio lays down some really solid old-school jazz standards such as “Blue Monk,” “Caravan,” and “My Funny Valentine.” Grab a caramel macchiato ($3.85 for 16 ounces) and a turkey, avocado, bacon sandwich with chipotle mayo, ($6.50) settle into a leather couch, and listen to Sam on the upright bass, Alan Worthington on the guitar, and George Kezas playing the hell out of the tenor saxophone.
