Written By: Jessica LaGrone Thunderking Brewing Co. Coffee Bar
Orange County is increasingly becoming a mecca for food fusion and contemporary drinkery. What better way to climb the epicure ladder than with a harmonious coffee partnership? Foodie sanctum SOCIAL Costa Mesa, an attractive new-American restaurant, is uniting with the local coffee masterminds of Thunderking Brewing Co. for a daytime Coffee Bar. SOCIAL’s mixology-forward techniques blended with Costa Mesa-based Thunderking’s cold brew will have coffee fanatics forgetting about their French presses at home. The Coffee Bar will be located inside SOCIAL Costa Mesa, and is scheduled to debut this summer, serving daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Coffee is a daily essential for many people, and we’re elevating this everyday ritual by providing a more memorable coffee experience,” said SOCIAL Costa Mesa owner Andrew Dorsey in a press release. “We’re confident guests are going to love discovering new coffee concoctions and really get excited about our edgy take on the overall coffee experience.”
This highly anticipated Coffee Bar is expected to offer all things java-related, including caffeine infused cocktails and a seasonal food menu with breakfast lovers in mind. The charming drink list features items that unite Thunderking’s proprietary nitro-brew and SOCIAL’s recipes prepared with or without alcohol. Visitors can indulge in “The Better Buzz”, a nitro cold brew blended with orgeat, coconut water, salted vanilla cream and coconut rum for an added kick.
Pair an artful cocktail with a seasonal breakfast or lunch dish assembled by the proficient SOCIAL culinary team. The ever-changing menu incorporates breakfast burritos, homemade donuts, even a house rendition of eggs benedict, among other artisan delights. Just in time for summer, Thunderking’s exclusive organic cold brew will be on tap to fill your caffeinated heart’s desire. Traditional coffee devotees can count on ordering customary hot coffee as well.
“We feel that SOCIAL’s culinary and bar program is one of the best in Orange County, so the decision to partner with their team for our first ever coffee bar was a no brainer,” said co-founder of Thunderking Dean Tompkins in a press release. “We love the menu and we’re excited to align with a like-minded, independently-owned business that is committed to bringing unique experiences to Costa Mesa.”
SOCIAL Costa Mesa was founded in 2014 by duo Andrew Dorsey and founder of Chronic Tacos, Daniel Biello. This new-American restaurant embodies a lax, stylish dining experience with globally inspired flavors found in each delicately crafted dish and cocktail.
Dean Tompkins and Taylor Foss are proud founders of Costa Mesa’s locally owned and produced ThunderKing Brewing Co. Tompkins and Foss are driven to create a premium natural cold brew coffee chock full of organic caffeine in to surmount its energy drink counterparts.
