Brunch is an essential part of a good vacation, just as much as a relaxing hotel and a great beach. There’s something special about shaking off all your responsibilities and going to a nice restaurant for brunch in the mid-morning. La Jolla is full of independent breakfast and brunch places where you can fill your plate with eggs benedict, pancakes, baked goods or vegan brunches. If you’re looking for a place to treat yourself during your stay, here are a few of our suggestions:
If you have a picture in your mind of the true La Jolla brunch experience, you’re probably picturing something like Brockton Villa. Housed in a classic beach cottage, they have both indoor seating and outdoor seating that overlooks La Jolla Cove. If you’re planning to hit the beach later in the day, this is the perfect first stop. And the views aren’t the only thing that make this spot amazing. There’s a wide variety of brunch food for you to sample, from veggie burritos to a French Toast with orange zest called “Coast Toast” to warm eggs benedict. And if you missed lunch, don’t worry. They also serve lunch and dinner.
Harry’s Coffee Shop
Or you can visit Harry’s Coffee Shop for a more laid back, homey breakfast and brunch experience. Harry’s Coffee Shop has the feel of an old diner, and that’s for good reason. Established in 1960, it’s the oldest family owned diner in the area. It even has that classic old diner “Wall of Fame,” expressing the owner’s deep love of baseball. If you’re looking for a hearty eggs benny, hash browns, and omelets stuffed with deliciousness, Harry’s Coffee Shop is where you want to go. Plus, it’s an establishment embedded in the local culture of La Jolla, so it appeals to visitors looking for an authentic experience.
The Cottage is a delightful establishment famous for breakfast and brunch, and has the South Californian flair to all of its dishes. Their light, airy dining room and outdoor seating with happy yellow umbrellas are as charming as their blueberry pancakes or brunch cocktails. They keep a cozy, people focus on everything they do, and it shows with their friendly staff. All of these things combined make it little surprise that they were ranked one of the best restaurants in San Diego in 2016.
