Good choice when in the area
Posted on 01 / 30 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Ki's review.
My husband and I had driven on the Coast Highway past the restaurant a some years back but it was not until our last trip to San Diego that we made an effort to check it out. It was worth the trip, especially considering that there are not many pure veg or vegan choices in the area.
We knew that is was not pure veg; however, the breakfast/lunch menu appeared to be veg friendly. Veg dishes included a marinated tempeh sandwich, butternut squash and corn enchilada, vegetable fajita, tostada, stir fry, and a couple more others. Main dish prices ranged from $8+ to $11 each.
We shared the tempeh sandwich which was filled with double-decker tempeh, carmelized onions, avocado, chipotle mayo.
Came with a beautiful side salad and house-made dressing. Tasty and hearty. We also shared the butternut squash and corn enchilada which came with a side of brown rice, black beans, salsa, and tortilla chips. We said no to the soy cheese, because it was not vegan (at the time of this writing they used "Veggie Slices" brand which contains casein). Tasted okay though my husband liked it better than I.
We each also ordered a smoothie, and they were both yummy.
Breakfast/lunch menu prices are good and reasonable. Order at the counter and food is brought to your table. Dinner is full service and maybe more expensive. Seating is on the second floor with ocean view.
A good choice when in the area.
