Weekend Away: San Diego

Last weekend I was in San Diego for a friend’s birthday/girls weekend that was so much fun and definitely filled with good food! We brunched at Rustic Root, which was the first time I’ve ever seen breakfast risotto on a menu so you know I had to get it… And if you’re not ordering pancakes or french toast for the table you’re making a big mistake. This would explain the fluffernutter french toast that was incredible. Afterwards we made out way to a few wine bars, Carruth Cellars has an adorable outdoor patio and their flights and food did not disappoint.

As far as dinner goes, I had heard so many good things about Puesto that I made a reservation a few weeks in advance just to be on the safe side. We went to Puesto at the Headquarters and not only was the food great but the ambiance was so fun and lively. It was a perfect choice for a birthday dinner with a large group of people!

Sunday morning topped off the weekend with breakfast at one of my favorite San Diego spots, Lofty Coffee in Little Italy. There is few things better than sitting on their patio with a latte and the ancient grains bowl (add an egg, obviously). We also stopped at Cafe Gratitude before heading to the airport and I would definitely recommend their pumpkin coffee cake!
