If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.


Fresh Happenings

Del Mar Highlands Town Center, which is already home to a variety of eateries, will soon welcome two new additions: Philz Coffee and Panini Kabob Grill. Philz, a San Francisco-based coffeehouse, specializes in customized coffee blends – made one cup at a time. Panini Kabob Grill’s menu offers fresh Mediterranean fare, including kabobs, salads, and wraps. Both restaurants are scheduled to open in the late spring or early summer.

Farmers Markets


Take a tasty weekend break for fresh local produce and other treats at a nearby farmers market. The Del Mar Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at Upper Shores Park.
