Market Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By PapaJohn29 - San Diego

Every aspect of the eating experience exceeded expectations. Complimentary tastings between courses were delicious and the chef made individual exceptions for 2 of the diners food restrictions (vegan and gluten free). The traditional meals were phenomenal, but the fresh locally grown vegetables made the vegan roasted dish greatly appreciated.

V.G. Donut & Bakery

Reviewed By WontonTomatos - Solana Beach, California

I am here almost every week early morning. If you're there too early sometimes the selection is limited but they're slinging it all day long. Really can't go wrong with this old school doughnut shop. Cakes, breads, rolls and more. Its a Cardiff icon.

Great friendly place to eat. Decorated with fun twists like lights that look like birds nests and chandelier near kitchen that is made out of large kitchen whisks. Outside dining area fantastic in a warm day.

Had Claire’s lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberries. They were amazing. Poached eggs perfectly cooked. They always give you a little shortbread cookie for each person after your meal.

Visit Claire’s Too in their parking lot for a latte or mocha while you wait for your table. The are pulling shots of Bird Rock Coffee (local roaster in La Jolla).

Jake's Del Mar

Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.

Pipes Cafe

Reviewed By gswhiz13 - Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California

Each year from March 1st through June 30th, we are Camp Hosts at San Elijo State Beach in Cardiff By The Sea, CA. Pipes is our very favorite restaurant. We especially enjoy their Cheese Burger Basket with great tasty fries. We always make sure to get there early, because they are always packed by mealtime. We especially enjoy their outside dining area where we can see and enjoy the ocean while we eat. We certainly highly recommend Pipes as The Place to have a great dining experience.

Bangkok Bay Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By lloyd b - Vancouver, Canada

Bruno said it was his favourite Thai restaurant and so it was a natural for our last night. The decor was a melange of traditional Thai and Buddhist art and statuary. What struck me as unique was a portrait of one of the ancestral kings of Siam; now that deserves a much longer conversation. Bruno ordered and we devoured; all remarking just how great the food was. Don't miss it.

Tony's Jacal

Reviewed By 2beans2000 - San Diego, California

We have been enjoying Tony’s for over 20 years and we still love its family-run ambiance, well-run service, family-friendly atmosphere, and great food.

My husband always orders the El Vaquero with a Chile relleno and a carnitas taco. Tonight I ordered a Chile relleno ala carte. We both commented how delicious the Chile rellenos were... just like home-made because they are home-made!! Really wonderful. A dear friend of ours, Martha, makes home-made Chile rellenos and hers are the benchmark against which I measure all others. If Martha’s are a 10, then Tony’s are a 9!!

For years I ordered the carne asada each visit to To y’s... it’s simply the best. Try it.

They’ll ask you if you want rice or beans. Tell them you’d like a split and they’m serve a bit of both. Perfection.

Be sure to order a side of slaw... really, order the slaw...for the table to share or just for you.... it’s incredible! We even skip the rice/beans sometimes in order to just enjoy a full serving of slaw!!

When finished with your meal, you pay up front at the counter so don’t wait for a bill to come to the table. You can get up and pay any time, just bring the table # up to Teresa and she will take your payment.

There is a wonderful, large birdcage in the back bar area. There are canaries, parrots, parakeets... so many!! Kids love to visit there.

Parking is available in the lot at Tony’s and in another lot across the street as well as on the street.

Enjoy!!

Board & Brew

Reviewed By Tom K - San Diego, California

Fresh bread, top quality meats, especially good if you want to grab a quick lunch. Portions are big, and for a casual shop, everything is quite neat and clean and orderly. Their specialty is the Turkey sandwich with avocado, but the roast beef is excellent, too. Also Vegan Friendly!

Pacific Coast Grill

Now on the ocean in Cardiff, PCG is a hip and artistic trip for your senses. Feast on extraordinary Pacific Coast Cuisine in visually stunning surroundings. The Pacific Coast Grill is a place to see and be seen and most of all, to enjoy.

Reviewed By Patty8888 - Encinitas, California

You cannot beat the location: It’s right on the beach and the views are wonderful. Decor is attractive with an upscale beach vibe. Service is good. But the food is meh.

The menu tries hard. The items are trendy and there are many intriguing options. Our fried calamari rings appetizer was great—not greasy and with a nice dipping sauce. Likewise, the guacamole and chips hit the mark. However, the today’s special I ordered—Seafood Risotto—had what was a lovely assortment of seafood swimming in a watery risotto. Said risotto was closer to Uncle Ben’s instant rice with no risotto characteristic whatsoever. It wasn’t plump, it wasn’t nutty, it wasn’t flavorful. It was, in fact, utterly tasteless.

I almost gave the place just 3 stars but they gave our party of 9 a private room with our own private balcony overlooking the water, and that was divine.

Nevertheless, this is the second time I’ve been here and neither time have I felt good about the food.
