Right now I am only visiting the bakery portion for carry out. Best bakery items around and always fresh and delicious. My granddaughter is always on the lookout for a new cookie to try! Have tables setup outside right now but we are looking forward...to sitting down and eating breakfast there again soon.More

First time here. Had various dishes and all were great! Pretty large portions. Table salsa had great flavor. Service was quick and very polite, friendly. The bakery part is outstanding. Breads, pastries, cookies, more. What we bought was delicious. This place is our new place...for Mexican food and bakery goods. Will return soon and often.More

San Luis Rey restaurant is a little gem; tucked away from the main street around the corner from the Mission San Luis Rey. We had stopped in to pick up some pastries for a family celabration, the aroma of the baked goods, along with the...colorful/fun vibe of the bakery just made you feel joyful. We returned the next day for dinner, the childrens menus/dinner were just right for the kids, tacos and quesadillas, of course they enjoyed the chips and salsa. Our server made hot chocolate for the children. Chile relano plate with rice and beans is a generous portion with a very tasty/tangy sauce. Chicken enchilada plate was delicious, again generous portion. The next time I am in the area, I will certainly stop in.More

First time visit to order a birthday cake. What a surprise a full bakery and everything looked delicious. A young man was very helpful. The cake was delicious. On the opposite side is a restaurant that we're looking forward to try and stop in for...coffee and pastry, too. Highly recommend -- near the San Luis Rey Mission.More

Some of the best port tamales and guacamole in the area. Wonderful stop when travelling to San Diego. The bakery is incredible. Highly recommend cheese pockets and pumpkin empanadas. Well worth the calorie splurge. Friendly, attentive staff. Super casual and fun.

Enjoyed a lovely brunch with my 2 adult children. I chose from breakfast menu, kids chose from lunch menu. Great service and generous portions. Then we went to bakery side and had a difficult time choosing from all their beautiful pastries. But narrowed it down...to 3 to take to go. We will go again Can't believe it took us so long to find out about this gem near our home in Oceanside.More

The food is Mexican and kinda by the book. Where this place shines, however, is in their extensive bakery with all kinds of delightful pastries. A nice tip: have lunch and then browse their pastries for a great desert.
