havana grill
January 20th, 2016 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

On Saturday after running a few errands, it was time for Jake and I to have some “real lunch”! I picked Havana Grill since we were in the area and I had been curious about Havana Grill. I had seen it was finally open and wanted to check it out with Jake.

Havana Grill is in that little plaza off Clairemont Mesa Blvd. at the 805 when you start heading west. The smaller one that’s slighter harder to park in. Surely …

sunny side kitchen
December 28th, 2015 Escondido, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

A few weekends ago Jake, T and I were up in North County land for another one of Jake’s chiropractor appointments. This little jaunts up north allow us to explore some unknown territory and with the help of the internet I scoped out a place called Sunny Side Kitchen in Escondido.  

Sunny Side Kitchen is a super cute little cafe that’s open for breakfast and lunch. There are a few outdoor tables, too, so you could bring along a furry companion …

dog walks and a revisit to con pane rustic breads

A couple of weeks ago, shortly after getting my shiny new FitBit, I noticed that there was a DogFest Walk n’ Roll was happening over in Liberty Station. Wanting to do something fun for the weekend and something to help my new daily goal of 10K steps, I signed up myself, Jake and T and we brought the three doggies down to Liberty Station for the 1 mile charity walk.

There were a ton of people and their dogs getting ready for …

thyme in the ranch

A few weeks ago, Jake was working at an event up in Rancho Santa Fe with T and I tagged along to hang out with them while they worked doing airbrush tattoos. I stopped over at a place within walking distance called Thyme in the Ranch for a little bit of breakfast.

Rancho Santa Fe is a pretty fancy-shamancy looking area. The Downtown-like area we were in looked a bit like an English garden. Thyme in the Ranch fits in well …

mary’s donuts

Looking through my past donut posts I was surprised to find I have never done a dedicated post to my favorite donut shop in town! What?! Oh it’s been mentioned on here before but I felt it was high time to officially share with you my very favorite donuts in San Diego: Mary’s Donuts.
I swear it’s not because we share a name, either.

I don’t even remember how long we’ve been coming to Mary’s Donuts but it’s been a few years now. …

nomad donuts

I think you know by now that I’m kind of a donut fiend. I’ve been to many donuts shops around town and even make it a point to visit donut shops in other towns. I’m slightly wary about the “gourmet” donuts that have popped up in San Diego (for the record, I’m not a Donut Bar fan – sorry) so maybe I was a bit reluctant to try some of the newer places. I finally stopped into Nomad Donuts over …

85c bakery
January 7th, 2015 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County mary 14 Comments

85c Bakery opened up in San Diego back in November 2014 and I remember there being so much hype about it! There are a few in the north land (aka Orange County/LA) and I read about long lines over opening weekend. I decided to wait a bit before venturing over there last month for the first time. I’d hadn’t been to any of the other locations, even though I’d heard so much about them. Long lines pretty much keep me …
