Cobalt blue tile frames the open kitchen and a white picket-like fence edges the brick patio, highlighting this La Jolla bungalow's innate charms. The umbrella and tree-shaded patio is the perfect place for lingering and floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of sunlight inside for breakfast-lovers reading the paper over their blueberry pancakes, crab cake benedicts or roasted veggie omelets. Mimosas and Bloody Marys are popular on weekends, while most customers stick with foamy cappuccinos and lattes on workdays. Breakfast is served till 3pm; lunch items like crab fettuccini, stuffed avocado salad and grilled chicken sandwich with feta appear at 11:30am. Dinner is served in summer only.
