Vive La Tarte – San Francisco, CA

I stayed two nights with Peanut in her San Francisco abode. These were nights staying up late to talk, catch up, gossip, introduce new TV shows to one another. It was some much needed girl-time for the both of us. She introduced me to Vive La Tarte on my last morning with her. Vive La… Read More Vive La Tarte – San Francisco, CA


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


Claire’s on Cedros – Solana Beach, CA

My mom recently came to town via Amtrak. The train station is located in Solana Beach. Claire’s on Cedros is just two blocks down so we all met for breakfast recently. Claire’s on Cedros is known for their breakfast. I read lines can be extremely long on weekends. The friendly girl I spoke to that… Read More Claire’s on Cedros – Solana Beach, CA


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


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


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


Harry’s Coffee Shop – La Jolla, CA

I’ve seen Harry’s Coffee Shop in La Jolla over the years but have only recently visited this small restaurant. I’m not always a breakfast type of person but I will try a restaurant if I see chicken fried steak or hollandaise on their breakfast menu. Cdj suggested we finally try Harry’s Coffee Shop some time… Read More Harry’s Coffee Shop – La Jolla, CA


Queenstown Public House (Little Italy)

A rain storm was coming to San Diego so we wanted to take advantage of the warm sunshine before the skies started to weep. It was ¬†one of those lazy weekends where you sit on the couch, in your baggy pjs, wondering ‘self, where would you like to treat yourself to today’. I had read… Read More Queenstown Public House (Little Italy)


Suzy Q’s Diner

My favorite breakfast items are probably doused with either hollandaise sauce or country gravy. I don’t know why. I just, like, really love sauces on almost anything. I’m a creature of habit so finding new breakfast locations to try out has been difficult for some reason. So I was curious when I heard about Suzy… Read More Suzy Q’s Diner
