I was in La Jolla/Mira Mesa for a wedding and chose this place after a quick review of the Happy Cow iPhone app (THANK YOU COMPLETELY WORTH THE PURCHASE!!).
Instead of having to navigate my way through restaurants (and especially because I was on a budget), I came to Jimbo's, bought a bunch of vegan snacks and staples and brought them back to my hotel fridge so I would not go hungry for the short time I was here. I bought lunch to go, some snacks to leave in my car at the wedding in case there was nothing for me to eat, and snacks to take to the beach and to the airport.
Besides all the vegan grocery staples, they have an extensive deli counter with foot priced by weight (Quinoa Pilaf and Curry Tofu Mirage were delicious), there was also pre-made dishes you can grab to go and there is a sandwich counter with several vegan options. I was there way longer than I needed to be because there were so many choices I couldn't decide what to get. I wish there was a place like this back home, I would shop there regularly.
Lots of raw choices as well. Well done Jimbos. It could only be better if it was exclusively vegetarian/vegan.
Huge selection, Vegan & Raw, Very friendly staff
