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 …

lucky’s golden phenix restaurant [revisit]

It’s been over four years since I posted about Lucky’s Golden Phenix Restaurant back in 2011. 

I’m happy to report not a whole lot has changed. Jake and I brought T here for breakfast one recent Saturday morning. It wasn’t too crowded in the restaurant and it didn’t take long for Lucky to swing by and say hi to us.

A few things on the wall have been added or swapped out but the rest of it looks about the same.

cruisers malt shoppe / gardner, ma
September 18th, 2015 Mary, Massachusetts, Travel mary 2 Comments

On the morning of my cousin’s wedding, we all went out for breakfast to a local diner called Cruisers Malt Shoppe. 

Cruisers Malt Shoppe is a cute little diner in a corner spot in downtown Gardner, MA. The outside has some cool murals on it!

And inside Cruisers Malt Shoppe there’s a lot of neat, old decor. There’s a heavy focus on Coca-Cola related products plus lots of old records and car stuff. 

It feels very much like a 1950’s Americana diner in …

mama kat’s
September 4th, 2015 Mary, San Diego County, San Marcos mary 4 Comments

One lovely and crazy hot Saturday morning, Jake, T and I were up in North County. We don’t really spend a whole heck of a lot of time in the northern parts of San Diego, but here we were. It was still breakfast hours though the time was creeping up and over noon and I figured it was high time to try out this spot called Mama Kat’s.

Mama Kat’s is over in a little strip mall not too far from …

jamms restaurant / las vegas
August 17th, 2015 Las Vegas, Mary, Travel mary 2 Comments

We played around with some ideas for breakfast the next day in Vegas. Should we do a buffet? Should we go on the cheap? In the end I decided to try another off-strip restaurant called Jamms Restaurant. 

Jamms Restaurant is way, way off the Strip in a strip mall. No oversized casinos and flashy lights here, folks. When you get away from the Strip, Las Vegas starts to look like a “normal” city!
The item that really caught my eye while browsing …

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. …

funky fries and burgers
July 20th, 2015 El Cajon, Mary, San Diego County mary 8 Comments

On Saturday, Jake and I went out for a bite to eat at a brand-spankin’ new spot in El Cajon called Funky Fries and Burgers. We managed to get their BEFORE the torrential rain started (though we got stuck in it later after we went to Parkway Plaza). I found it over on Yelp. There was a video on Yelp showing a basket of fries with two eggs on top and gravy being poured over the top. I showed the video …
