Great "FOLKSY" place with excellent customer service. We visit La Jolla Shores every year and always visit Shorehouse Kitchen! You can order off the menu or "customize" your meal! GREAT way to start your BEACH day!

Order the mango pancakes. The black cherry almond smoothie was also delicious. The rest of my party enjoyed their food as well.
