We are not ultra foodies but we are huge advocates of fresh food deliciously and originally prepared. 3rd Corner fits the bill! You will not be disappointed - consistently great food and terrific service by Sarah, Sam and Philip not to mention the greeters - simply love this restaurant !

I love downtown Encinitas. The 3rd corner is quaint and has a great wine list. The food was pretty good and service was great. It's not right in the middle of the cute part of downtown but not too far from it all.

You can select your wine while you dine. Wonderful place. Several locations in the SoCal area but this is the one we frequent.

We had another delicious dinner here recently. The menu offers a wide selection of tasty options. The goat cheese cheesecake is divine! Service is friendly and professional. Joined their wine club, which is a great way to try some new wines for a good price.

Passing thru the area, and saw that The 3rd Corner was one of the top rated on Trip Advisor. Had an excellent lunch! Flavorful, light unique offerings. Plenty of gluten free options, and the staff was well prepared to advise on gluten free dining. Certainly will make a return stop when in the area. Thanks Trip Advisor reviewers!

Lovely ambiance in this place. It's located in the Lumberyard shopping center in Encinitas. Lots of cute shops , restaurants, and places to stroll after a good meal. My husband and I both had the Chicken Penne and found it delicious, although we needed that walk afterwards. The server let us taste one of our wine choices before ordering two... More

With plenty of places to eat in downtown Encinitas, the 3rd Corner stands out with a great selection of reasonably priced wines and a delicious assortment of dishes in a bistro atmosphere. Add the early and late happy hours and you can't go wrong visiting the 3rd corner! Try the pork schnitzel for a deliciously satisfying dinner!

So we were surprised to find the 3rd Corner open and serving dinner with happy hour prices on wine. The food and service was very good. We will definitely... More

Select your wine, order one of their unique appetizers or delicious meal. Can't be beat and open until late too! Their location in Ocean Beach is excellent too.
