RE: Breakfast Burritos
I can't believe that my favorite place hasn't been mentioned! I guess there aren't that many socal people on this board.
If you're ever in North San Diego County, you've got to try Pipes Cafe in Cardiff. They have breakfast burritos that are absolutely huge & very tasty. The first time I ate there I had a #1, which contains scrambled eggs, avocado, sausage, and pica sauce. It was pretty good, although my weak stomach had major problems with the pica sauce later. Feeling that they had a great core product, I returned to order a second time sans pica sauce. I've been hooked ever since. They offer (I think) three types of coffee. When I started going there they only offered the kona, but it was so good that I haven't bothered trying the others. They also now have an espresso stand, but once again the kona still has my devotion (and living in Seattle has spoiled me on good espresso). The decor is strictly a surfing motif (the joint's name comes from the term for when a wave will roll into a barrel), and has a television that features surf videos all day. I will warn you that this place can have sort of long lines on Saturday & Sunday morning, but I've waited longer for less quality food. And I believe the lines testify to the quality in another manner....I've never seen an ad for this place. It's simply been the word of mouth that's sold this place.
For a review in a local paper....
