About This Coop

The OG coop; the one that started it all! What began as a passion project to leverage some of the incredible ingredients coming through the kitchen at adjacent sister restaurant Juniper and Ivy, is now a staple in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego. This coop is completely open air, with lawn games and a full bar to soak up craft cocktails, local beers, and the perfect SoCal sunshine. Don't squawk at the line, it moves fast. And while parking isn't up to us, this coop has spots out front dedicated to curbside pickup for busy hens and peeps on the move.
