If you are looking for a unique place to eat, stop by the Yellow Deli in Vista.
It's in a beautiful, rustic building that is worth the trip alone that took 7 years to construct.
But they also serve delicious, healthy food, grown on their own organic farm, in a relaxing, peaceful environment.

Or even stop by for just coffee or tea with friends as I often do, since I live in Vista.

This unique restaurant is one of about 8 around the county run by the families who live a communal lifestyle.
Their story is interesting:

Love the Yellow Deli! Simple wholesome menu. Had their delicious Pina Colada smoothie last night. Creative handcrafted location and decor. A favorite place to meet for coffee, study, etc. You must try it!

Order anything and it will be great. The chili is the best I've ever had. A true magnificent place, almost magical. Service is slow and tea refills are few and far between. Still it is a must see place.

This was a really pleasant surprise as I've lived along the coast in North San Diego County for years and it took friends visiting from LA to discover this gem. Everything is so fresh and I understand that they raise much of it on their ranch in Escondido. The breads are amazing and we couldn't resist buying some to take home. You can create your own sandwich by selecting all the parts and the peach mate' is refreshing on a hot afternoon. The staff is upbeat and helpful. The decor is sort of a beautiful mix of the 60's meets California hacienda and the separate seating areas all give an atmosphere of intimacy that allows conversations without distraction. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
