Lovely space with indoor and outdoor seating. We had the scallops with pork belly. It was delicious with a glass of sauvignon blanc of course. We were fortunate to be there on a night where Sarah performed with her guitar. Such a beautiful voice which...More

This is my go to restaurant in Encinitas. Oysters are always great. Steak tartare is awesome. Biscuits also delicious. My favorite is the kitchen sink-a huge serving easily can be enjoyed by 2 or 3. Brunch on the weekends and dinner any night.
