eat local. you know this!

Giving a shout out to a couple awesome place you should check out in SD. First, Nate's Garden Deli and Cafe: http://www.yelp.com/biz/nates-garden-grill-san-diego. Uber local food and a great selection of micro-brew. Definitely worth checking out! While you are there, you should go do some shopping for your garden next door at City Farmers and bask in all of the awesomeness that it exudes. Cool place to waste your time.

Second, two of our favorite local coffee shops! Very different, very awesome. If you are in Northpark you should go say "hello" to Daniel et.al  at The Coffee and Tea Collective http://www.coffeeandteacollective.com/pages/about-us for a simple pour-over and local roasted deliciousness. If you happen to be in Golden Hill or Little Italy you should go say "what's up" to the folks at Influx: http://www.influxcafe.com/. Great sandwiches, salads and baked goods!

Remember to support local businesses! Your dollars talk. Cool local cafe or Starbucks? C'mon, people! Get with the program.

Post your favorite local haunt below so we can check it out...


  1. I luuuuuuv (probably too much) Kensington Cafe in Kensington. The owner Lauren is kind and awesome and so is all her staff. She just opened a little pizza joint on Adams, too, called The Haven. Great places to spend your money!

  2. Thanks for sending the love to Nate's Garden Grill! New owners Lance and Allison are long-time nursery customers and friends and are having a blast bringing food to our amazing community!

    With sunshine,
