My husband often visits San Diego in the spring for work. This year I decided to take my family along for spring break week. I previously wrote about 5 San Diego Favorites, but I have come to realize that San Diego food has too much to offer. So, I decided to add another 5 San Diego Food Spots. Anyone who frequents San Diego and the surrounding areas knows that San Diego has great food and beautiful sights.
Sugar and Scribe – One area of San Diego that I wanted to visit this time around was La Jolla. We ate breakfast at Sugar and Scribe. I can almost describe it as a crisp, clean light vibe. Sugar and Scribe is a restaurant and bakery, they offer catering, and you can either eat in or take food to go. I had one of their specialty coffees and brioche french toast. The french toast came with strawberries and a maple syrup soaked into the bread. The plates were large and were more than enough to eat. The Sugar and Scribe restaurant offers online ordering and a full menu on their website to view.
85C Bakery Café – On the way out of town I told my husband to stop at the new 85C Bakery Café on Midway and Rosecrans. All I can say is that I should’ve stopped sooner. I purchased many baked goods to go. I bought a croissant, a chocolate chip bun, cinnamon roll, mouse cake, tiramisu, Oreo smoothie, and a strawberry banana smoothie. All were scrumptious and fulfilling. There is a small eat-in section. You pick what you want, place it on a tray, and they box up your goodies for you if you take them to go. The 85C Bakery Cafe is a must visit for a quick coffee or smoothie and a treat.
Corvette Diner – Another popular food spot is the Corvette Diner located in Liberty Station. I found the Corvette Diner by googling food locations. I had seen the Corvette Diner a few times in my previous visits to San Diego but never ate there. My two daughters and I decided to eat lunch here, and I’m glad we did. The food was decent, but the atmosphere was impressive. The hostess looked like she’d stepped out of the 50s, the waiters and waitresses were upbeat and energetic, they had a game room, there was one section that played reruns of I Love Lucy, and they even had a DJ. The Corvette Diner is a must see if you have children or if you just like oldies. It’s family friendly and fun.
Pieology Pizzeria – One must visit franchise is Pieology Pizzeria. Pieology is located in numerous states, but they have 76 locations in California alone. If you are gluten-free, this place is for you. Pieology offers pizza any way you like. You pick your crust, sauce, cheese, meats, and toppings. I ordered the PieRise crust, garlic herb butter sauce, and vegan cheese. My husband and I shared a pie. We were able to make each half the way we wanted, so I added pineapple and olives to my side. Pieology is exceptionally casual you sit where you like, or you can take your pie to go. You will find numerous quotes on the walls for inspiration.
The Broken Yolk Café – The Broken Yolk Café is another franchise in California that I have enjoyed visiting. We have been to The Broken Yolk Café a few times. They have 22 locations in California. The Broken Yolk Café is open for breakfast and lunch. They have been around since 1979 and are continuing to grow strong today. Our family favorites at The Broken Yolk are the french toast and the huevos rancheros. The Broken Yolk is a fan fav so make sure that you get there early during busy seasons.
