naseems bakery and kabob / sorrento valley
August 21st, 2014 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County, Sorrento Valley Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Our office moved last fall closer to Sorrento Valley. This is one of the places I discovered this summer with Minion and Matt, my co-worker cohorts. The very first time we tried to visit was during the lunch rush and the place was packed with all of the Qualcomm workers and there was not a spot to sit in Nassaems. We ended up at some generic Mexican place a few doors down where I felt crowded and claustrophobic all at …

revisit to bud’s louisiana cafe / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
May 16th, 2014 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Taking a little break from the travel posts to write about a place Jake and I went to last week here in San Diego. I haven’t written about Bud’s Louisiana Cafe since 2009, when they were still located in Tierrasanta! I’ve been back a few times since that post but am finally doing a revisit post. Woo!
I had a strong hankering last week for some catfish… specifically some FRIED catfish. Maybe it was that week spent in the South that …

lockwood table cafe / solana beach, ca
February 3rd, 2014 Mary, San Diego County, Solana Beach Mary Desjean 2 Comments

I have one more Restaurant Week thing to post about, but it’s late night on Sunday and it’s too many photos so I don’t wanna. Not yet anyway. Look for that one later this week.
Instead, I’m going to share a little place I discovered for breakfast this weekend. I was heading up to Encinitas to purchase some cupcakes for a Red Velvet Cupcake tasting I organized this weekend (also coming very soon in a post near you) and I had …

opera cafe & patisserie / sorrento valley – san diego, ca
January 15th, 2014 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County, Sorrento Valley Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Last month I met up with CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High for lunch near my work. I picked a place I hadn’t been to in five years: Opera Cafe & Patisserie. I’ve been trying to get my co-workers to go here but it hasn’t quite worked out in my favor yet… so I figured CC would be cool with it!
I was only able to do iPhone photos that day since I lent David my camera for his Harry’s …

bella vista social club and caffe / la jolla – san diego, ca
December 4th, 2013 La Jolla, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I’ve been wanting to check out Bella Vista Social Club for awhile after I had read Jinxi’s post about it earlier this year. At the time it was too far away for me to go for lunch, but since our office move to mid-Miramar/Mira Mesa, it’s much closer and easier drive.

It’s right near the turn off for the Torrey Pines Glider Port and there’s a small sign out front indicating that there’s a restaurant nearby, otherwise you’d probably never know …

clementine gourment marketplace & cafe / palm desert, ca

 Jake and I stayed in Palm Springs only one night – so after a very peaceful and restful night at the Riviera, we got started early to try and beat the heat of the day. Originally we went over to a place called Cheeky’s in Downtown Palm Springs, but the prospect of waiting for an hour in the ever-increasing heat was a big turn off for me. We ditched those plans and made our way back down to Palm Desert. …

elidia’s bakery | panaderia / city heights – san diego, ca

The first time I ever went to Elidia’s Bakery was because of Jake and his love of trying new taco shops. He wanted to check out this place that can be seen right off Fairmount in City Heights. While the taco shop turned out to be nothing special, I did drag us over to Elidia’s Bakery first for some treats. We’ve back a few times since that first time and I finally snapped a few photos on one of my …

cafe di roma / imperial beach – san diego, ca
January 16th, 2013 Imperial Beach, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 5 Comments

This meal is from early December – I’m a little behind in my postings! Jake, the kids and I went to Cafe di Roma after hunting for seashells in Imperial Beach and finally acquiring those elusive Star Dust Donuts. We were all hungry and since we were in Imperial Beach, I did a quick Yelp search to find a little Italian cafe. We stopped to check it out! My camera died shortly before this visit, so I apologize in advance …
