Breakfast

Cafe Topes – Carlsbad, CA

I’ve made mention that I’m the brunt of jokes in my circle of friends because…well…I wasn’t born here. That’s the running joke/eye rolls/wtf reactions I get when I use that as an excuse for not understanding phrases/terms/jokes/etc. I’m lucky my friends have a thick skin as we’re often mean to one another (in a brotherly/sisterly… Read More Cafe Topes – Carlsbad, CA

Zel’s Del Mar

Sundays can be stressful for a variety of reasons. One consistent reason has always been breakfast. Friends and I always have the same question every Sunday around 10a. “WHATAWEDOING” for breakfast is the text I get every single time. Unbeknownst to me, they made an executive decision without my input, consent, yay or nay…well, you… Read More Zel’s Del Mar

Pegah’s Kitchen – Escondido, CA

I was in Escondido to have my car serviced. It was an early morning and all I could think about was chicken fried steak. And country gravy. I discovered Pegah’s Kitchen on my Yelp app and decided to try the restaurant as they offered chicken fried steak with country gravy on their breakfast menu. Pegah’s… Read More Pegah’s Kitchen – Escondido, CA

Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Happy Good Friday 2017 everyone. Easter is upon us and I’m looking forward to quietly celebrating with family. What’s the most important meal during this time though. You know the answer. Starts with a B and ends with an H. I think I have friends who would guess the wrong answer. Kidding aside, brunch is… Read More Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

StreetCar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Doughnuts & Coffee – La Jolla, CA

I was browsing Yelp when I gasped at what I was seeing on the screen before me. StreetCar Merchants was open in LA JOLLA ? Say what.

They took over a previous restaurant building next to the Inn and re modeled… Read More StreetCar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Doughnuts & Coffee – La Jolla, CA

DELICATESSEN

Elijah’s Restaurant & Delicatessen

It was nice having close friends around during the holidays. There’s more laughter and, most importantly, there are more chances to eat out. Cdj has been a fan of Elijah’s Restaurant & Delicatessen. The restaurant used to be located in La Jolla but is now located in Kearny Mesa. I tried Elijah’s a few times… Read More Elijah’s Restaurant & Delicatessen

Brunch

Karl Strauss Brunch (Sorrento Valley)

I’ve been wanting to re visit the Karl Strauss Brunch for a few months now. My mom took me and Cdj in 2013 and we had an ok time. The all you can eat brunch comes with endless mimosas; a pint of beer; OR a flight of beer. You can’t choose all three but one… Read More Karl Strauss Brunch (Sorrento Valley)

French

The French Gourmet

Breakfast is a meal that I don’t look forward to as much as, say, lunch or dinner. I used to enjoy going to breakfast alone in the mornings to gather my thoughts before work. I stopped doing that some years ago. The French Gourmet has been around for years. I swear they sold their fruit… Read More The French Gourmet

Hash House A Go Go – San Diego, CA

There are certain food photos that instantly remind of cetain  friends and family. The food photos turn out nicely but all I remember are the conversations and laughter I had during that meal. It still feels like it was last weekend that I ate at Hash House A Go Go with Cdj and Ny. I had… Read More Hash House A Go Go – San Diego, CA

Snooze an A.M. Eatery – Del Mar, CA

Does life get so busy that you forget to write about a breakfast place. Or maybe the food wasn’t that great and your blog’s subconscious doesn’t want to put in the effort. Can a blog even have a conscience. Or maybe there was meaning behind the meal that wasn’t worth sharing about at the time… Read More Snooze an A.M. Eatery – Del Mar, CA
