Food and staff are excellent. Our family stopped in for a casual dining experience and thoroughly enjoyed two of their lunch specials, ceviche and a yellowtail sandwich. Our toddler couldn't get enough of her special grilled cheese and salad with citrus vinaigrette dressing. (Yes, our toddler even liked their salad.) You should try it if you're in the area. We...

This cafe appeared to be really cute and I had read great reviews about it.. So we tried it.. My husband liked the sandwich and salad on the side, especially the dressing was super tasty- but for me, it didn't cut it. May be it was the chicken sandwich I ordered - but it was too bland for my taste..... More

Stopped in for a late lunch because the cafe was so close to our motel. The waiter was friendly and the food was fantastic.

Four of us stopped in for a late breakfast/early lunch. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh. I will go back. It is a tiny little place with some indoor seating as well as a 3 or 4 tables outdoors. You order at the counter and they deliver the food to the table.

Cafe Vahik, Wind and Sea Cafe, whatever you'd like to call it these days--IS A MUST. Delicious bagel creations, salads, omelettes--all made to order to perfection. The staff are lovely, chatty, hilarious and serve excellent coffee. If you sit around long enough, you get a fantastic slice of local life and antics--which in my book adds fun and joy to... More

This was located next door to our stay at the Travelodge La Jolla and we found the basic breakfast tasty and at a fair price. We would return again to the friendly staff and try some of their other breakfast fare.

The restaurant is really close to my house this is the second time I am here. A well decorated place to have your early morning breakfast and a cup of coffee. They have superb coffee and sandwiches in the town all served fresh and hot. The staffs are nice and friendly. The price is little bit high but other than... More

Great breakfast, lunch, coffee directly across the street (LJB) from Holiday Inn Express. Plain exterior belies a real treasure. If I were a mile or two away, I'd walk to get here. If I were unfortunate enough to be staying more than a couple of miles away, I'd drive here. The place is excellent.

Next to the Travelodge on La Jolla blvd. Very deceiving exterior - looks like nothing. But inside are friendly people and fresh tasting food. Paninis are excellent. Comes with a fresh salad. Would visit again.
