My favorite little go-to bakery for cakes, cookies, pies, quick breads, scones! Everything is fresh, homemade goodness! Can't beat their cakes!

Charming is the best word to describe this little jewel tucked in a corner of Rancho Santa Fe village. There are both inside and outside tables and although close together which gave us the chance to meet two local ladies one who has been coming two to three times a week to eat for the last 30 plus years.

Awesome place for breakfast and dinner. They also have amazing desserts, the pies and cakes are pricey but worth it.

Nice place to sit and chat and watch the goings on on the green at the inn. Just be sure to check their open times! Great quiches home made and really great panini probably better for lunch than breakfast unless you like muffins and oatmeal.

Though it closes down during the holidays, I try to reserve one of their desserts for family dinners at home. They serve very good breakfast during normal operating hours.

This is such a cute place with really good food. A favorite of mine to meet friends for lunch or take friends and family when visiting. The crab stuffed avocado is my favorite! The salads are wonderful too. Plus its an adorable cottage setting, so pretty!

On a beautiful day this is a great place to go. There is some indoor seating and a lot of outdoor places to sit. Nice atmosphere. Menu is varied and very good. Food is great. Service is not very personal, mostly order at a counter and find a place to sit, a little better than a Starbucks. Sometimes have to... More

Such a pretty place! Bring cash or head for the ATM across the street. The inside has a cottage feel with display of good looking salads and cakes. After ordering choose a table on one of two porches. Food tasty and service good!

Came here waiting to have our room at the Inn. Just 3 min walk. Place is so nice. Had the pasta with sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese, chicken salad with papaya and avocado (wow!!!!) lentil soup and pecan pie. Took some home made granola for breakfast at the Inn. You've got to visit this place if you are in town!... More
