the cafe at harrah’s rincon casino | valley center

Last week it was Spring Break for Jake and T. To “celebrate”,  my folks got us a free room at Harrah’s Rincon Casino and we had a staycation. The resort is far enough away to feel like you’re out of town, but...

kung fu tea | kearny mesa

Every other Monday I go down to see my chiropractor and when I was leaving from his office, I spotted a new tea place that had just opened up called Kung Fu Tea. Dr. Gilmour came out when he saw...

TIABI Coffee & Waffle Bar: Our last meal in Vegas

And now… for my last Vegas post! After some “just okay” dinner at a Chinese place called China Mama (which we visited last time) and some gambling (I finally played roulette – and won!), we hit the hay late in...

lemon grove cafe

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...

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...

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

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...

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.
