lemon grove cafe
February 5th, 2016 Lemon Grove, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Last weekend we went out to breakfast on Saturday AND Sunday, my friends. How exciting! I really wanted to hit up the Crack Shack last Sunday but the rainy weather made me change my mind about that. Instead… two days of breakfast restaurants! On Sunday we stayed near Jake’s place and went to the Lemon Grove Cafe, which used to be the Antique Row Cafe. 

Jake had always wanted to go to the Antique Row Cafe but sadly missed his chance. …

suzy q’s diner
February 3rd, 2016 Escondido, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

Jake’s really been into going out for breakfast lately which has made me a happy girl since I love breakfast! Last weekend he needed to be up in the Northland area of San Diego and on the way up, I picked out a spot named Suzy Q’s Diner in Escondido. It sounded cute and lovely and, more importantly, it was a dog friendly restaurant since we had the three little dogs with us for breakfast that morning.

There’s a dedicated parking lot …

[recipe] jackfruit banana bread with lime and coconut
January 29th, 2016 Mary, Recipes mary 2 Comments

This week is was our turn for Breakfast Club at work. Originally I was going to try and do breakfast pizzas, but Minion wanted to bring in breakfast burritos again (he does this regularly so sometimes I call him Burrito Man). I felt that pizza AND burritos for breakfast was overkill. What to do instead? I poked around in the freezer and found what I thought was mango (it wasn’t) and decided to make a banana bread. With mango. But …

jake & eggs

Last Sunday morning I wanted to go out for a little breakfast. After being cooped up for a week with the flu, I was ready to go out for a little bit of grub! I had read about a new pop-up restaurant in Ocean Beach that I wanted to check out called Jake & Eggs. Obviously the name tickled me and it seemed like the spot to take Jake for breakfast!

The chef is named Jake, solving the mystery of the …

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 …

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.
