Went there for lunch and we were amazed by the quantity and quality of the sandwiches we ordered (roast beef and tunafish). This has to be the best value menu for any restaurant in La Jolla. And as an added benefit, the food was delicious.

Taking a hint from Rachel Ray we frequently ask the local residents for a restaurant recommendation. Without hesitation the locals recommended Girard Gourmet. The food was good, the service was exceptional, the price was good. I wholeheartedly recommend Girard Gourmet.

Once again Girard gourmet hits the spot for European style pastries, italian espresso, vegatarian entrees, and tasty sandwiches. Sitting on the sidewalk with your morning coffee is as close to European sophistication as it gets in California. Friendly and efficient staff and economical prices make...More

Have you tried to CALL them? They're a very small place, so I wouldn't expect a lot of flexibility, but if you order in advance they may be able to accommodate you.
