“Eat under the trees and walk/ride from the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The staff is very friendly and easy to talk to. The food is delicious and the portions are large. If you want to save money, try splitting something. There is even a taster for caffiene afficianados. Try a 4 oz. sample of latte, mocha and Mexican moca. Gluten-free, veggie, seafood, carnivor, no problem. Ride your bike along the beach to Law Street, then meander your way up to Tourmaline and Cass. It's shady, outdoors and feel almost like you're in a treehouse.

“Cute, romantic atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here our first night in San Diego and we weren't disappointed. We sat on the side patio and it was romantic! Three tables and a fountain set the mood. Our drinks were delivered in mason jars and thee food was cooked perfectly. The menu had a foodie feel with reasonable prices. I had a meat and potato style pizza. Delicious!

“the most scrumptious brunch, adorable setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I love Fig Tree!! The veggie scramble and windansea omlette are my favorites! My husband always orders the crabcake bennie, which is also pretty amazing. I also reccommend the stuffed french toast, I promise you've never had anything like it. The food is so fresh and well prepared. I have always had a wonderful experience at Fig Tree; such an inviting atmosphere! and!... they just started serving drinks! Mimosas and specialty drinks YUM
