lemon grove cafe
February 5th, 2016 Lemon Grove, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 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. …

crest cafe
December 21st, 2015 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to head down to Crest Cafe for a blogger dinner – complete with a van ride thanks to the fine folks from The DD (Drunk Driver) Van Service. Van ride = I don’t have to try and search for parking in Hillcrest = score for me!

I once went to the family owned Crest Cafe many years ago. I think I had a burger there and sat in one of the booths in the …

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 …

bagatelle cafe & bistro

Bagatelle Cafe & Bistro is one of the newer restaurants to open up recently in the Miramar area. I love it when new places open up around my office – it gives me new foods to try! Bagatelle Cafe is in the same strip mall as SuperNatural Sandwiches and they serve French-American food for breakfast and lunch. I’ve been a few times and feel I can now properly assess them.

fig tree cafe / hillcrest

The Fig Tree Cafe that I recently visited is actually one of three separate locations here in San Diego. Johan Engman, also the proprietor of Cafe Cantata, started the first restaurant in Pacific Beach and has since branched out to two additional plots in Hillcrest (2011) and Liberty Station (2013). Originally intended to be destination for brunch, the two newer locations now offer dinner in addition to the relaxed late Sunday breakfasts that we San Diegans love so much. I adore brunch like a hobbit craving “elevenses,” though, so when I was invited out for a tasting, I knew that I had to swing by on a weekend morning to try it out.

le parfait paris
December 3rd, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 8 Comments

I was recently invited to check out Le Parfait Paris, a recent addition to Downtown San Diego. This cafe is actually their second location, with their primary location in Mission Valley. They’ve got an awesome open air feel with this new spot. Tables are on the sidewalk for maximum people watching and to enjoy our usually beautiful weather. Very European!

Jake, T and I visited on a recent Saturday morning and managed to park right in front of the cafe! This …

borrego springs / salton sea / mount laguna

Getting around to Part 2 of our little weekend trip out to the desert! You can refresh your memory with Borrego Springs Part 1 over here, if you’d like to. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

After grabbing lunch, visiting “The Mall” and checking into our hotel, Jake and I decided to drive out to visit the Salton Sea. Neither of us had ever been and we were curious what it was like. It’s about a half hour drive away from Borrego Springs, down a winding two lane road in the desert.
