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.

Howdy folks. It’s Monday again. MINION MONDAY. I love this whole “let someone else write for Monday” thing.

Tucked in near the Del Mar Horse Park, Cafe Cantata sits at the forefront of the recently revamped Flower Hill Promenade. Though we weren’t on our way to play with the ponies, Allison and I were both …

ham n scram / westminster, ca

Over Labor Day weekend this year, Jake, T, and I made our way back up to Orange County to check out the Civil War Reenactment once again. But first… we had to stop for breakfast. Breakfast is very important after a long drive and a little Yelp research led me to a little place in Westminster called Ham n Scram.

It’s not a big spot. There’s about four tables inside and the place was full that morning. We were worried we’d …

the original broken yolk cafe / pacific beach – san diego, ca

Welcome to another edition of MINION MONDAY *cue dramatic music*! Minion will now tell you about another place he visited recently, alleviating me of this very, very hard duty.

Next to our amazing Mexican food, The Original Broken Yolk Cafe is one of San Diego’s proudest institutions. It’s been featured in countless TV shows, including one …

naseems bakery and kabob / sorrento valley

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

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 …

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

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 …
