This Gluten Free and Organic cafe is a hidden gem and it's only five minutes drive. They serve breakfast and lunch and the menu is filled with salads, home made soups, kombucha, green drinks, smoothies, cold pressed coffee and sandwiches. They have a small deli for take home with pre -made meals ready to heat up. Their multi grain gluten free bread is very good. I love their tuna sandwich on their GF toasted bread. They have homemade waffles that are frozen and easy to pop in the toaster, as well as many home made take home options, including three selections of bone broth.

Another long time family owned business and the first Organic restaurant in our area. This converted home offers very casual dining upstairs with indoor and outdoor seating with beautiful ocean views. In the center is the bar with plenty of communal seating for eating or you can choose the main dining room with the view of both ocean and train trestle. Live music available on weekends for a small cover charge. My favorite time to go is when they open at 8 am. Typically you'll find locals and old timers drinking their coffee and reading the newspaper. It's calm and quiet and you can watch surfers catch a wave or two and watch our local train, the Coaster and Surf Liner whiz over the bridge that is perched above the lagoon. They have great organic muffins and at least one wheat free one with raspberries or a whole grain banana muffin. They are hearty and tasty. They sell out quickly so be there by 9 if you want a muffin! They are very flexible with their menu and will gladly make whatever you desire.

Eve is our newest vegan and organic restaurant in downtown Encinitas. They feature bowls of yummy exotic mixes of vegetables and a base usually of brown rice. Their sauces are scrumptious. I like their Havana Bowl with plantains, sweet potato, black beans, brown rice ,and their mojito sauce. They also have great organic salads, kombucha, vegan desserts and more.

Best baker around - hands down! If you have a desire for home cooked and homemade recipes (turkey meatloaf, chicken enchiladas, quiche, pasta salads, stuffed potatoes) from your grandmother's era, then this is a must stop. Their muffins have real big muffin tops and are huge! I've been known to call ahead and reserve two of our favorites on a Saturday because they sell out quickly. They have a great lunch menu to boot. This is a family owned enterprise and it's been around for at least 25 years. It was our special stop for an after school treat. There are so many delicious home made baked goods - so good that I had them make eight wedding cakes in each combination of flavors for my youngest daughter's wedding! The best part is that it's only a ten minute drive east in lovely Rancho Santa Fe. Hours 7 am -3pm Tuesday -Saturday.

This Mexican restaurant is very popular and it's only a five minute drive. It's large with outdoor and indoor seating and includes a happy hour in the bar that has some outdoor seating. I have been to Mexican restaurants in Mexico and the decorating does have the vibe of a traditional mexican restaurant. If you decide to dine for dinner on Friday or Saturday I recommend sitting outside at dinner time. The noise level can be deafening inside. It is not a chain restaurant and the owner began her endeavors in Old Town San Diego over 50 years ago. My favorite are their homemade corn tortillas, chips, and salsa. I have had luck with their Chicken Mole entree.

Organic raw food that is locally sourced and created for optimal health. Their food is best for "on the go". Their prepared organic salads are best eaten at home and can easily fill up two people. My current favorite is the Kelp Noodle Salad and I add my own spinach. Try their raw ginger carrot soup- either to go or they prepare it for you. It is delicious! If you choose the Wellness option for your stay - you will use their menu to design your food and juice cleanse. A three day maximum food and juice cleanse will be provided and waiting for you at the studio. For a treat try their Acai Bowl. Split it in two "to go" containers - it's enough for two or freeze the other half. Most Acai is sweetened with sugar; theirs is sweetened with blueberry and banana.

This is a 46 year old family owned restaurant that specializes in Turkey enchiladas, tacos, and burritos. They serve a cabbage salad with every entree. I've grown to love it. They do not have my favorite salsa, so we order Salsa Fresca on the side.Their chips are good. They have a huge selection of margaritas. I make my own at home - can't compare! If I were to recommend, I'd recommend that you don't buy their house margarita. Step it up and you won't get the side effects of cheap tequila. The wait on weekends after 5 pm is at least an hour. Otherwise eat after 7:30 or 8.

If you like Mexican food that caters to American's Fidel's will fit the bill. They use yellow cheese. I'm not a fan. The key to their better Mexican food is their homemade sauces and salsas. You can ask the waiter what homemade salsas and sauces they have for their burritos and enchiladas. Traditional Mexican cheese is white and mild and they sprinkle a bit on top.

Their happy hour begins at 3pm except Monday it begins at 5pm. During Happy Hour their red and white wines selection changes daily ($7) and always have sangria($5). My favorite selection during happy hour is their roasted brussel sprouts with a delicious dipping sauce. Reservations suggested for dinner. They do have gluten free pasta. No cork fee on Sunday.

This garden is less than a mile away, about a ten minute drive or a moderately intense walk between 30 and 45 minutes. They have various events throughout the year that you could consider. A beautiful east view awaits you as well.
Consider this stop for a sunset happy hour. Drive inside the park and they'll allow 20 minutes of free parking. Let the park ranger know that you're planning on eating at the concession stand. If there is no parking available, park along the 101 south and walk in. Then walk to the campground convenience store and buy a two dollar 24 oz can of Tecate beer and find a seat on the edge of the bluff and savor the moment! TIP: Walking to this State Park from Swami's is an easy walk, flat and a beautiful ocean view the entire walk. ( dolphins and whales sightings during winter) Park anywhere in Encinitas, around the Self Realization Center and start your walk south.

This is a must-do hike! There are three start points. Trails are easy to somewhat difficult. Support our National Parks and pay for parking inside the park. Or park on Hwy. 101 and walk the beach south to the trail head up to the reserve or walk through the state park and choose several trail options at the top of the paved road into the reserve. There is a small museum at the top of the paved road on the left - including restrooms. Inside the park two trail options take you directly down to the beach with stunning view points on the way down to the beach. You can see Mexico and on a clear clear day Catalina Island. When your hike is complete head north on the highway and choose among coastal eateries including, Claire's, Pizza Port in Solana Beach , Ki's for an organic lunch in Cardiff, or Lotus Cafe, Eve Encinitas, Qero, or the Taco Place in Encinitas. Also consider Cucina Enoteca at Via De La Valle in Del Mar. Cucina offers a farm to table menu and GF pasta. Best yet is their selection of wines. No cork fee on Sundays. Check out their Happy Hour menu - my favorite are their roasted brussell sprouts - their spicy dipping sauce is delicious.
