The Cottage in La Jolla. OH. MY. Seriously, you cannot beat the atmosphere or the food. Breakfast is probably my favorite meal-type genre. I think I could have breakfast for each meal of the day. For real. We have never had lunch or dinner at The Cottage but I am sure that they don't disappoint in that area either. My favorite thing, besides the many varieties of eggs benedict, is the Southern California Special -- an omelet with bacon, guacamole, and some other yummy stuff. It was fun to share this place with our dear friends the "N's." Plus, we are not really souvenir people on vacation. We like to find yummy places to eat and create memories that way and not accumulate "stuff." Although, pounds may count for "stuff" someday. HA!This last weekend we went on a little excursion with the "N" Family to San Diego/Coronado Island. One of my and Husband's favorite places to eat breakfast is
However, we got an extra special treat this time around. Our friend's, the "M" Family were the ones to introduce us to The Cottage. They moved from the Valley of the Sun a couple of years ago and we have not seen them since. I saw something about them possibly being in La Jolla the same weekend we would be there via her F.acebo.ok account. I thought, "Wouldn't it be funny if we ran into them at The Cottage?" I said as much to Husband just minutes before we arrived for breakfast. Sure enough! Just moments after we arrived and were waiting for our table we saw M & C with their three little ones -- two of which we had not yet met! They were there for a wedding and visiting friends. (We would run into his parents at church the next morning!)
Well, with all that said... fond memories are made at The Cottage and so are full tummies. If you find yourself even remotely in the area of La Jolla, CA this is a must stop. It's totally worth the drive.
