We were very pleased to find this place, a true oasis from the stresses of life, with wonderful sandwiches for lunch. Although we did not have a dog, we enjoyed seeing the various animals enjoying the scene along with their masters. The only disadvantage we found was a lack of parking close by. This matters if one person in your... More

We had a pleasant late-afternoon lunch at Stratford Court. Nice outdoor setting on a patio in a casual setting. Food and service were very good.

This restaurant is within walking distance from our timeshare, so we went there for breakfast. What a nice surprise! Despite the fact that the prices are a little high (typical for Del Mar) and the food we had was very good, but not great, we definitely would go there again. You walk up to the counter and order, and then... More

The seating at this cafe is outdoors on a cute patio surrounded by trees and shaded by umbrellas. You order inside and they will bring the food to you. The cafe is dog friendly and very casual. Try their yummy breakfast egg scrambles.

Clearly a local's joint, this is a great spot just off the hustle and bustle of Delmar. Excellent breakfast and lunch food and beverages. We ended up going almost every morning, at least for their iced lattes, and were never disappointed.

We are locals but we haven't been here ever. We walked here on a hot Saturday noon and the patio was cool and nice. We ordered the red velvet marble cake and it was delicious. We also got a juncky monkey smoothie and it was very peanutty and thick, could have used a bit more milk and sweetener. The egg... More

Known by locals, and worthy to be sought out by visitors. Find this delightful patio cafe just a block off the main drive through Del Mar. They have great sandwiches and easygoing service. Enjoy a coffee as you enjoy your stroll through Del Mar or after the beach.

My business partner and I filmed our real estate market update here. It was a cute, clean and cozy cafe. I liked that it was hidden off the road. I ordered the oatmeal and a vanilla latte which was fantastic. I wish my small bowl of oatmeal had not been $7 but at least it came with some bananas, brown... More

Great Service, consistent menu and personal attention to all details by Greg the owner of the restaurant. Scramble veggie is the best with toast. Orange juice always freshly squeezed. Dogs are welcome and they have water and treats for them. Very nice patio. Food is always good.

Thank Fipps
