One of San Diego’s best restaurants is Cafe Chloe www.cafechloe.com it is right around the corner and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. This award winning French Bistro never disappoints and has some of the best coffee in town. Just across the street from Chloe and one block down is another one of our favorites Zanzibar Cafe www.zanzibarcafe.com they have great healthy breakfast options, homemade baked goods, a European style gourmet market and a full service bar. Just a few more blocks down the street lies our latest discovery in the heart of the Gas Lamp Quarter www.gaslamp.org/dining/ and our favorite new spot Cafe 21 www.cafe-21.com located at 750 Fifth Avenue. All the food is made from scratch daily with organic local farm fresh ingredients. We love the fancy crepes,the potato pancakes, and the individual cast iron skillet omelets with interesting ingredients like scallops or pork belly. This place always delivers the goods. Another great spot is down the street by the ballpark at 13th and J, called The Mission www.missionsd.com . It’s housed in San Diego’s oldest meeting hall, built in the mid 1800’s. This very popular spot has great simple, tasty food with a whimsical edge. Breakfast offerings in both a traditional and a Chino-Latino style. They also have a great coffee and pastry bar. All four of these great restaurants have interesting and eclectic decors and all offer sidewalk al-fresco dining.
If you are looking for just quick cup of coffee or a bagel you can see a Starbucks from our front porch and just a block further is Brooklyn Bagel and Bialy www.ordermybagel.com on Tenth and Island. We also frequent a little independent coffee shop and cafe around the corner on 9th and Market called The Village at 631 www.villageat631.com a good place to sip a cup of joe, have a fresh pastry and read a book.
These are just a few of our favorite breakfast and coffee spots but it barely scratches the surface of the dozens of other places nearby. From the gospel brunch at the House of Blues www.houseofblues.com to the extremely popular Richard Walkers Pancake House www.richardwalker.com/sandiegolocation/ If you don’t feel like leaving your room don’t forget that all of the flats come with fully stocked kitchens ideal for making a home cooked meal or just warming up leftovers. We provide the coffee and with a full size fridge and stove. You can load up on supplies from the brand new grocery store only a block away and have breakfast in bed or outside in the courtyard.
