Places to eat & drink in Encinitas, California
Encinitas Fish Shop: Fresh fish and quality ingredients make this classic cuisine one of my go-tos for lunch or dinner. Try the ceviche or the seared ahi sandwich.
French Corner: French Corner is a modern French bakery with all of the classics including crepes, salade niçoise and pain au chocolat.
Temaki Bar Sushi: With their signature being the hand rolls, this hip bar-type vibe has a lot of energy.
Corner Pizza: An outdoor patio sprinkled with white lights and picnic tables, Corner Pizza is dog friendly. The menu is simple with the highlights being pizza, oysters, and wine. The pizza has a thin crust that is tasty even to a New Yorker. Try the Killer Bee for a mix of sweet and spicy flavor.
Fish 101: A classic menu of fish tacos, burritos and salads sprinkled with a few vegetarian options. My favorite fish and shrimp tacos in town.
