Kick off your day with a much-needed caffeine boost at Blue Bottle Coffee. Known for its specialty brews, this hip roastery is the go-to spot for a bright pour-over. If an iced beverage is more of your style, snag a New Orleans Iced Coffee, which is cold-brewed with chicory and sweetened with organic cane sugar. While you sip on your morning java, soak up the sun in the crisp white, airy space.

A little birdie told us that the best brunch in Del Mar can be found at Parakeet Cafe. This cozy, organic eatery features healthy dishes crafted with real, whole foods that don’t skimp on flavor. The Berry Cacao Waffle is made for satisfying the sweet tooth in your group, but for a savory option, opt for the Shakshuka or the eggs Benedict on toast, which features an eye-catching bright green roasted poblano hollandaise.

 

11 a.m.
