Wonderful! Will return after we move to SD

The trip was hectic & the hotel was surrounded by fast-food. I looked on my cell for a veg restaurant (figuring it would be safe) & called Hill St. Cafe to carry-out.

They have a variety of choices but I am not so happy with the food I ate. I ordered the southern fried chicken and I got breaded piece of chicken . Hard and barely seasoned. I really like the place, historic and has warm friendly atmosphere and they have good art collection.

A wonderful place to sit and relax over a glass of ice tea (or a beer) - had a great grilled veggie sandwich and a bowl of vegan soup - but the table next to me had lots of meat - so something for everyone!

The food is fresh and service is friendly. I can get 2 eggs, turkey bacon and fruit with coffee for about 10$ with tip. Love sitting outside! Have only had breakfast so can't speak to other items. Good vegetarian and vegan selection.

I love that I finally have a place with adorable ambience, delicious food, and an amazing array of healthy options! They even have kombucha on tap! Yes please! My girlfriends and I come here whenever we want a cute, fun time.

Loved our vegan breakfast! I had the tofu scramble(the cafe's homemade version) and my husband had the burrito. Very tasty, presentation made it even more delicious. Atmosphere was quaint and romantic.

Hill Street Cafe is a favorite place for me to take out-of-towners. There is a lovely patio for outdoor dining but sitting inside the various room of the hold Victorian house is fun, too. The menu has been simplified recently and is focused on doing fewer items really well. Even though the menu is smaller, there is still something for... More

We ate breakfast here 2 years ago while in Oceanside and tried it again. This time we got a really nice, shaded seat on the patio and had an excellent server who genuinely seemed to enjoy her job. I eat differently now so I appreciated the vegetarian/vegan options on the menu. (I laughed when my husband tried to order bacon,... More
