The Shoppes at Carlsbad is a fashion (and foodie) lover’s dream! If you haven’t stopped by in a few years, prepare to be ‘shook’ by the elaborate renovations that completely refresh the property. Over 120 retailers are housed in The Shoppes and it seems like the gift that keeps on giving with more to come! Like the 24,000-square-foot Forever 21 that’s set to open in late 2018 and numerous restaurants being added to their “tenant mix.” You can spend the ultimate day date here, and here’s how!


9 a.m. | Order a Bacon, Egg and Cheese on Brioche Breakfast  Sandwich at Panera Bread

Stop in for one of your breakfast favorites at this go-to eatery. From baked egg soufflés to a brioche-bread breakfast sandwich, you’ll know why you have to stop by this spot for the most important meal of the day.

10:30 a.m. | Buy That Summer Dress at Zara

You may not need it per say, but I know you want it! Lucky for you, The Shoppes at Carlsbad has plenty of options to get your shop on like H&M, Zara, francesca’s, American Eagle Outfitters and Sheikh Shoes; they all have new looks that are ready to be explored!


12 p.m. | Grab a Surf and Turf Burrito for Lunch at Lucha Libre Taco Shop

All that shopping make you hungry? Swing by Lucha Libre’s new location for their signature Surf and Turf Burrito. Keeping with tradition, the third location also offers a luchador discount if you show up wearing a lucha wrestling mask!


1:15 p.m. | Watch Avengers: Infinity War at Regal Cinemas

Go ahead, recline that chair and kick back to enjoy one of the summer’s top Blockbusters! And while you’re at it, upgrade your ticket to Real 3D, you deserve it!

3:30 p.m. | Get Poke Nachos for Happy Hour From Yard House

During the week, indulge in Yard House’s happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. Plus, for the night owls, their late night happy hour runs Sunday to Wednesday 10 p.m. to close!

The Poke Nachos are a must-try!


5 p.m. | Pick up a Mother’s Day Gift From Pandora

First of all, Oprah claimed Pandora’s earrings as her favorite; need we say more? The fab collections from Pandora are a must see; I mean, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? Any of their pieces would make a perfect gift for mom!


6 p.m. | Have a Grilled Rib-Eye Steak at Cheesecake Factory for Dinner

Winner, winner steak dinner! We can’t think of a better way to cap off your oh-so-perfect day at The Shoppes at Carlsbad than with a hearty meal. Wine and dine at The Cheesecake Factory and you won’t be sorry.
