Where to Eat in San Diego

Urban Solace:

For those with a sweet tooth, here are your marching orders: Pecan cinnamon roll with a scoop (yes, a scoop) of cream cheese frosting. If you’re more into the savory side of things, try the pork belly benedict. (And don’t worry, there are plenty of lighter options, too.). Bring a friend or two and dine outside on the covered patio during Sunday Bluegrass Brunch. Or stay inside and gaze at Ron Burgundy while he keeps watch over the bar. Wonderful, charming staff.

Culture Brewing Co:

A short jaunt from Bixby and Ball, this dog-friendly brewery is full of locals enjoying a myriad of offerings noted on the chalkboard. There’s also a very sunny (this is San Diego, after all) no-frills patio in back for enjoying a cold one.

Cafe 222:

For breakfast, get their early and come hungry. You must try the banana-stuffed French toast. And when you’re stuffed, lean back and admire the darling teaspoon and teacup chandeliers.

Lucha Libre Taco Shop:

Tucked into a chaotic intersection and parking lot, this Mexican-wrestling themed taco shop is a cheap eats must. The decor alone is worth a visit but don’t worry, the food holds its own. Where else can you get a burrito with french fries in it? Yes, french fries.

The sprawling, lively Mexican restaurant located at The Headquarters can do no wrong with seafood: from cod to octopus to lobster and everything in between. The salsas are smoky, spicy and creatively put together, like pistachio-jalapeño.
