St. Germain’s Café: Settled on the South Coast Hwy, St. Germain’s welcomes families to enjoy their traditional American style breakfast and lunch. They have outdoor seating, it is kid friendly, and they have free Wi-Fi. They have recently re-vamped the menu so there is more to enjoy. Come visit and eat like the locals do.
Pannikin Coffee and Tea: Resting on the North Coast Hwy, this Former Train Station, Victorian style building is a great place to see local artists show off their work while eating lush baked goods and delicious, fresh coffee and exotic teas. Painters, sculptors, and musicians leave their talent in this place for all to see and purchase. The relaxed hipster ambiance coaxes visitors to come back for more.
Encinitas Café: Between D St. and E St. on Hwy 101, Encinitas Café gets a high letter grade for their good food, homey environment, and surfer location. They have a variety of food ranging from burgers and milkshakes; banana walnut pancakes; acai bowls; to home-made chili. Visitors and locals share a love for their food – And the price is great considering the portions are large.
Mozy’s Café: Nestled on the North Coast Hwy, Mozy’s Caribbean style food warms the hearts and bellies of their patrons. It’s got a funky atmosphere – where you feel it’s almost mandatory to wear a t-shirt and flip flops. It is also vegan friendly too. Not to mention the smoothies and wheat grass shots hit the spot. It is walking distance to the beach and the locals are friendly and welcoming to the visitors. You can’t go wrong with Mozy’s.
Ki’s Restaurant and Café: Well, technically it’s a restaurant, but its true nature is a café. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a little more expensive than the other local cafes on the 101 but it is worth it. You can stare straight into the sea while drinking your mimosas. You can gaze at the sunset as you sip on fine wine. You can hear the waves dancing on the shore as you scarf down your omelet. Ki’s is a great place to go with your loved one when on vacation. Service is great, food is tasty, and nature is raw.
T’s Café: Tucked inside a mini shopping center on the 101, T’s provides delicious breakfast and brunch. But you need to get it while the gettin’s available. They close at 2pm every day. Another plus is that it sits right across the Solana Beach Station. There is outdoor seating and a full bar. It’s a great place to relax in the morning – very homey, and with very prompt service. This is our San Diego Hotel staff’s local favorite!
Swami’s Café: On South Coast Hwy 101, they are known most for their acai bowls and humongous variety of coffee. It is a Smoothie and Juice bar as well. Swami’s has a casual environment and the price is reasonable. It is right next to a Self-Realization Temple, so many patrons have a spiritual vibe. I hear the bee pollen is amazing, too. Visit Swami’s and you will have a buzzing time. This café is a haven for vegetarians with so many meat-free options!
