La Jolla Starbucks San Diego

Writing travel guide blog in San Diego sunshine...

Currently in San Diego the fist leg of our worldwide travels. Drove down from LA which took about 2 hours.

 They say that November is one of the sunniest months if not the warmest and it is certainly living up to that reputation. Beautiful blue skies but a slight chill in the air. Typing this blog whilst sipping a Starbucks coffee, basking in the sun in a bit of a sun trap on the terrace.

We are of course off season so everywhere is extremely quiet which is lovely. Had breakfast yesterday morning  at our San Diego hotel ( Paradise Point Resort & Spa)overlooking Mission Bay and headed off to La Jolla for the evening after spending the day sorting out a replacement Sat  Nav  which we think was stolen whilst we were unloading our luggage. Not an auspicious start but it has improved since.

 La Jolla is an affluent seaside area full of galleries and restaurants. George’s restaurant is somewhat of a destination  with three floors all of which have fantastic views overlooking the pacific. Three different dining options of fine dining, casual and the gallery bar area with bar snacks. Had a lovely meal of Mahi Mahi on a bed of potato Gnocchi and shitake mushrooms in a lovely sauce. Will write about the restaurant on the site latterly but it is highly recommended.

We had breakfast this morning at Brockton Villa, La Jolla’s historical landmark overlooking La Jolla Cove. Historic is used in the loose sense as it was built in 1894 but I suppose that’s old for the US. Crab Benedict with poached eggs on an English muffin with a spicy tomato coconut sauce. Unusual but tasty.  It’s around lunchtime now and will be heading off to Coronado, another area of San Diego which is meant to have  quaint village feel with Victorian architecture and nice restaurants. Yes you are right… a lot of our travelling does revolve around food!
