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 …

holsem coffee

I finally got a shot at trying the new Holsem Coffee this weekend. It’s the newest coffee shop in North Park, located near University Ave and 30th Street, less than a block from your “neighborhood” Starbucks. Walking by the Starbucks I saw there were plenty of people still partaking so I’m sure Starbucks was in no way worried about Holsem Coffee opening up next door. As you soon as you walk into Holsem Coffee (where, annoyingly, there are handles on the …

[revisit] brunch at kitchen 4140

Kitchen 4140 is in a pretty little slightly hidden spot on Morena Blvd., just down the street from the Costco and the Harley Davidson dealership. I’ve been here a couple of times already and documented Kitchen 4140 at least once before (I’ve been back for that insanely good chocolate bacon brownie dessert… drooooool). When I got invited to come in and try brunch I did a little happy dance since I hadn’t been in awhile and it was the perfect excuse …

nomad donuts

I think you know by now that I’m kind of a donut fiend. I’ve been to many donuts shops around town and even make it a point to visit donut shops in other towns. I’m slightly wary about the “gourmet” donuts that have popped up in San Diego (for the record, I’m not a Donut Bar fan – sorry) so maybe I was a bit reluctant to try some of the newer places. I finally stopped into Nomad Donuts over …

a-chau vietnamese sandwiches

Taking a break from all of those desert posts to tell you about some FOOD I actually ate recently. Vietnamese food to be exact! Most of the time I only seem to eat Vietnamese food around Mira Mesa but I was down in Jake’s ‘hood and needed a bite to eat. Jake was doing the Little League thing and I was on my own to grab something before his game started. I decided to go and check out A-Chau which …

85c bakery
January 7th, 2015 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County mary 14 Comments

85c Bakery opened up in San Diego back in November 2014 and I remember there being so much hype about it! There are a few in the north land (aka Orange County/LA) and I read about long lines over opening weekend. I decided to wait a bit before venturing over there last month for the first time. I’d hadn’t been to any of the other locations, even though I’d heard so much about them. Long lines pretty much keep me …

cafe cantata / del mar

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 …
