Thyme in the Ranch has been a favorite Rancho Santa Fe spot, for as long as I've lived here (and probably long before that!). It's a family-owned establishment serving breakfast, lunch or just coffee and snacks.

The baked goods here are excellent. It's a lovely place for a light breakfast or lunch. Oatmeal is great, quiche is delicious, orange juice is fresh squeezed. You can also get foods to go. The sweetest people work here! It's just a delightful experience every time you go.

We're staying at the Inn nearby and found this an easy walk. Had a delicious muffin, quiche, bacon in the morning, and two pieces of cake in the afternoon! Has a lovely interior and great porch. On a Tuesday it wasn't overly busy. Everything was fresh and the decor was cozy and clean.

This is a one of a kind restaurant. All of the baked goods are displayed for the day. Homemade and delicious, its hard to choose. I know I need to have oatmeal, but the cinnamon rolls are right there!
