Having been in San Diego Magazines ??Best of San Diego?, this business truly is a hidden gem. KiKi has been at this location for 20-25 years, however she started sewing when she was a little girl while in Greece. When she came to America in the late 50's, she worked in clothing manufacturing. Then, after being a housewife for a little while, she started working in La Jolla in the early 80's. Finally, she opened her own shop, which can be found off of Herschel Avenue. I got to speak to Kiki's daughter, Tammy, who explained that her mother has many customers who have been with her for so many years that they are now bringing their children. At this clothing alteration business, it was pretty clear to me that they truly cared about the work they did, and the customers as well.

Kikis alterations is the only place I get my alterations done. Recommended to me by a friend, I have had great turnouts since my first visit. Quick service, friendly and affordable prices. Kiki has done a great job on my pants, shirts and dresses. I would recommnd this place to anyone male or female!

Kiki is a La Jolla institution, and her superior tailoring skills are the reason why. From simple hems to major alterations, she is an expert seamstress who really knows her stuff and takes the time to make the result exactly what you need. Her prices and turnaround time are totally reasonable/in line with others (prices may even be a bit less), and the very few times over the years that I have taken jobs to other tailors have always been a disappointment -- I even had to bring one (expensive) piece to Kiki to fix what another tailor had done badly! Kiki is simply fabulous.

Kiki's is a pretty good tailor shop. She seems to take longer than some places to do alterations, but she does a good job and her prices seem to be in line with most other local tailors. The parking on Fay in front of her building is fairly good, and you should not have to walk too far. I would recommend her.
