What a conscious and outstanding slogan FLOWER CHILD restaurant in Del Mar, CA has...”Healthy Food For A Happy World”. 😍 Anyplace that says this, has GOT to be good. And the Brussel Sprouts were so awesome that I was so focused on their flavors, all...that was left was an empty bowl before I realized I hadn’t even gotten a photo. LOL! And the Turkey Avocado Cobb Salad-To Live For! Ohhh, the dressing! A great Moroccan Mint Kombucha and Tangerine Express IPA were the perfect compliments. Sweet spot! So tasty and healthy! 🍽🍺😋More

Avoid this place like the plague if you have any kind of food allergy. I asked three people that work there if there was any shellfish in their soup and they all said no and it ends up after asking the cooks, there was shellfish...in the soup. I had an anaphylactic reaction and had to go to the doctors as a result. I spoke to the general manager the next day and she didn’t even apologize she just blamed her staff and said she’ll “empower them more to help them learn about allergies.” It sounded like a load of BS to me and her poor management skills is a reflection of how poorly this place is run.More

I could eat their butternut squash all day long! I’ve never enjoyed it half as much ever before and can’t wait to get it again. Meanwhile, the other veggies in my tofu plate were very good, and my two companions both loved their choices. There...are several different types of preps—platters, bowls, salads, etc., and you get to pick your ingredients for all, including choices such as steak, salmon, chicken, etc. My friend who’d been there before said she’s enjoyed everything she’s had there, and I believe it. Environment is attractive, but it’s noisy, even in the downstairs area where we ate. But, the noise is tolerable and the food is definitely worth it.More

I had their salmon on quinoa and grains and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I can't wait to go back and try more!

I love enjoying lunch outside - cute patio - but the draw for me is the healthy food - I love to order a protein with a vegetable- yesterday ordered the Wild Alaskan Salmon with roasted broccoli - was so delicious and healthy !! Try...it out sometime and you will see what all raves are about !More

Flower Child offers a treasure trove of delicious interesting food. Gluten free and vegan choices are clearly identified and extremely tasty. Local food is sourced wherever possible and “dirty” foods which are chemically laden are avoided. Although the restaurant is located in an upmarket mall,...prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and the generous portions served. Flower Child surprises you with its large seating areas— sunny streetside tables, lots of indoor seating, and a large patio outdoors on the back of the restaurant where dogs are welcomed and families and friends gather. This is the kind of restaurant which draws you back to try something new every visit. They also offer curbside pickup for take out orders.More

We had lunch before seeing a show at the fairgrounds. There is inside and outside seating. The Mother Earth bowl is delicious and very filling. My niece had three portions of the side Mac and Cheese. My sister ordered the hummus. The bill came to...$28 with tip. I would definitely eat here again.More
