With an extensive, healthy menu that covers the meat eaters to the gluten-free diet, 27 local brews on tap, and about 80 kinds of bottled beer, this place is worth a visit if you're in the Gaslamp in San Diego.
The vibe is cozy, with the feel of a cafe in a larger city. There is plenty of seating by large, open windows, great for people watching while you eat. The seating is shared, so if there are empty seats nearby expect people to sit next to you. The close seating with others in the restaurant gives it a really nice, communal feel.
Tip: It can be busy during peak hours—I recommend coming just before or after the usual lunch or dinner times.
