Socrates is closed Monday.

A European coffee house specializing in espresso drinks. We also sell tea, beer, root beer, apple cider and other juices, pastries, bagels, and our own breakfast burritos (distinguished by its Middle Eastern recipe rather than the traditional Mexican recipe). On occasion we also offer for public consumption poetry readings, comedy, and music. We offer atmosphere peculiar to the coffee house tradition of the 1960s after which our coffee house is dedicated; it was inspired by the Prison of Socrates coffee house that was in operation in Balboa, CA, from 1959 to 1969.
