Can’t stop, won’t stop; Breakfast Republic opens another location in Mission Valley!

The latest location of Breakfast Republic in Mission Valley makes it a perfect spot for shoppers to grab breakfast before hitting the mall or an early afternoon breakfast after a morning of shopping till you drop! I myself, may have “accidentally” wandered across the street to Nordstrom Rack after finishing my breakfast.  #mimosasmademedoit

Day Dining at the Newly Opened Fort Oak in Mission Hills

In a sea of chilaquiles, breakfast burritos, and huevos rancheros, typical for Southern California brunch menus, Fort Oak is pushing the boundaries of what a brunch menu can be. Trust me there is nothing better than having a hangover, drinking a stiff bloody mary and devouring a giant breakfast burrito, but it is also nice to have a more refined and upscale brunch experience. When you try a new restaurant and get the experience of tasting something you’ve never experienced before; don’t us brunchers and day diners deserve the same experience?

Don’t Brunch And Drive: Three Great Spots to Brunch Along the Trolley Route

Living in San Diego for over 3 years now I recently got to experience my first ride on the trolley! When I plan on brunchin and drinking I usually just grab an Uber but $30 roundtrip Ubers start to add up! So, a $5 day pass to ride the trolley to your hearts content can save you 6 times over! Whether your heading into mission valley or downtown from east county or living in the city and want to experience some east county eats, the trolley is the way to go!

North Park Beer Co.: Brew-Tail Flights And A New Brunch Menu By Mastiff Kitchen

North Park Beer Co. is nestled in the heart of North Park. They leave no detail to the wayside. Basile Studios, who also designed hotspots Kindred and Polite Provisions, has turned this former boxing gym into a spectacular mid-century space where every detail has been intentionally thought out; from the logo tiles in the bathrooms, the custom street lamps, and the most gorgeous dark stone bar top. The beer at NPBC is equally thoughtful (and delicious,) and the creativity and pairings of flavor and beer by Justin Stoddard’s (associate tap-room manager) brew-tails are nothing short of a bloody mary beer-loving Christmas miracle!

Sunday Morning Remedy

Do you love blue skies, unbelievable views and great food and drinks? Then look no further than the 14th-floor rooftop destination bar, The Nolen, for “The Sunday Requirement.” I require that you try this place out as soon as possible! When I walked off the elevator and turned the corner, my jaw dropped to the floor. I was blown away by the expansive views and tall ceilings, as were the other members of my monthly Bloody Mary Meetup Group

From-Scratch Bloodys from True Food Kitchen

Have you ever tried something so fresh and tasty that you leave the restaurant feeling energized and refreshed? That’s how I feel every time I leave True Food Kitchen, located at Fashion Valley Mall, a fabulous open-air mall. So, naturally, I’ve stopped in True Food on several occasions with friends and my husband. I wasn’t aware they had brunch, so when I saw their sign outside advertising brunch, I was thrilled!
