Panini

I heard about the restaurant and knew I had to try it. It is located just across the lawn from the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. I took a nice walk and enjoyed the Nora Jane Panini. It was fabulous!

Loved Thyme in the Ranch - gem of a restaurant in the village of Rancho Sante Fe. Has a style of Provence about it in an eclectic setting. Gorgeous food, caters for all tastes and those who like something different too. Well patronised by locals and visitors.

Great spot for lunch with a girlfriend. No gluten free bread though. Darn. Nice patio dining available to enjoy RSF's weather.

Great family spot. Huge sandwiches and lovely deserts. I opted for the full sandwich but in the end I had to share as it was huge! Not sure I'll have a beef sandwich as good ever again

Such a delightful place for breakfast or lunch. The food is fresh and yummy with an ambience of quaint cafe or country garden. The side patio area lends itself to peaceful solitude. After "breakfast hours" they still serve frittata and quiche if you are in the mood or having a late breakfast. Fresh baked pastries and desserts line the case... More

My wife and I ate lunch there yesterday. Immediately we felt completely comfortable. The porch had several tables and it was delightful to eat there. Everything appeared home-made, including sandwiches and baked goods. I ate a tuna sandwich, with apples inside - different and tasty. My wife ate a caprese cheese sandwich, which she loved. In fact, we liked it... More

Great sandwiches but my wife, a great cook , said that the soup was far and away the best thing she has ever tasted. She has been experimenting trying to duplicate it.
