1. Kettle & Stone, 1619 West Lewis Street.
Closest coffee house to the tour/619-326-8505
At the turn of the 20th century San Diego’s Mission Hills neighborhood (five miles north of Downtown) came into being.
It started out upscale and has stayed that way ever since.  Today, there’s a home tour in Mission Hills from 10 am to 4 pm.

Before and after the tour there are three coffee establishments worthy of patronage while soaking in vintage residential architecture.

2. Heartwork Coffee Bar, 3993 Goldfinch Street/619-293-3300
Parking is tough but that’s the rub for all businesses in this trendy neighborhood.

3.  Meshuggah Shack, 4048 Goldfinch, Street/619-518-5421
Every ‘hood has a character.  Mission Hills has Meshuggah coffee cart.

This year's theme is the Gems of South Mission Hills. Guests will view a variety of houses: Tudor, Spanish, Prairie, and Craftsman. From small and quaint to large and opulent, original to remodeled.

Docents will describe distinguishing characteristics of architecture and interior details of the homes, as well as the social history of some of the interesting people who lived in the homes.
Sunset Street Craftsman
(not on this year's tour)

Complimentary refreshments featuring our almost famous homemade cookies will be served throughout the day at one of the homes.

Registration in advance is $5 less than on the day of the tour and won't require waiting in the purchase line. On Saturday, September 22, guests will pick up their informative souvenir booklet and ticket wristband at 1437 Torrance Street, between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm. It includes a map and professional photographs with descriptions of the homes. Houses will be open for viewing between 10 am and 4 pm.
