Gear up for a day of shopping and sunshine with a cup of joe from Local Krave. San Diego’s most famous spot for buttered coffee, their liege waffles and breakfast sandwiches are also to die for. This is a must-stop to get your morning pick-me-up before you tackle the day ahead.

One of the amazing things about Point Loma is the melting pot of cultural diversity. Indulge in Italian goodness with an authentic meal at Cesarina! Not only does chef and owner Cesarina Mezzoni make pasta from scratch, but she also whips up a smattering of traditional Italian desserts! We’re drooling just thinking about them…
