bakery & cafe – big joy family / clairemont – san diego, ca

The sign out front of this place just says “Bakery & Cafe” and in the middle of the signage there’s a URL listed “bigjoyfamily.com” – which goes to a site that no longer exists. Aside from the website woes, this...

scripps ranch farmer’s market / san diego, ca

I love farmer’s markets. I used to go to the Scripps Ranch one a whole lot, but not as much as I used to. I still like to visit though and sit outside, eating tasty things like tacos or gyros...

szechuan house / mira mesa – san diego, ca

Szechuan House is insanely close to my house. I’ve been here tons of times and just realized recently that I’ve never posted about it. I’m not sure why though. I really like the food here, but I get the feeling...

ristorante genovese / orange – orange county, ca

I had breakfast one morning at Arthur’s in Orange (I’ll post about it another day), and noticed an awesomely kitschy Italian restaurant (and apparently, combined law office) next door that started calling my name. Seriously, it did. Kitsch beckons me....

it’s a grind coffeehouse / little italy – san diego, ca

Update: This location is now closed. Unlike mega chain Starbucks, It’s a Grind is well, a smaller chain. At least compared to Starbucks and compared to the number of locations in San Diego. I had a small hunch it was...

Volare is this awesome little hole in the wall Italian family restaurant in the Sports Arena/Old Town area. It’s in a strange location, off of Barnett Ave. near the Marine Corps Recruit place with a very large adult store that...
