Herringbone, on Herschel, offers fun happenings at the restaurant, like oyster hour and Sunday Lobster Bakes, that are sure to keep you coming back for more. Herringbone is also a perfect place to go for Sunday brunch served from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. Their patio is perfect for you to enjoy those $12 bottomless mimosas.
What to get:
If you’re feeling breakfast, try the warm and gooey Hazelnut sticky bun. If you want lunch, try one of their “crusts” such as the wild mushroom, sage, pesto and a Parmesan crust, or a simple fresh lobster roll on a brioche bun. If brunch is a little too early for you to start drinking, they also offer yummy organic juices.

The Shores Restaurant
If you’re all about seeing a beautiful ocean view while enjoying your Brunch, check out The Shores Restaurant on Camino Del Oro. Brunch is served on Sundays from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM.
What to get:
We recommend starting off with either a traditional lox bagel with tarragon citrus or the citrus marinated laughing bird shrimp served with green onion, garlic, ginger and red pepper soy. For your main course, indulge in the Bread and Cie Foccacia Benedict, with prosciutto, roasted tomato, arugula, and a champagne hollandaise sauce, a delicious twist on the original. For a lunch inspired dish, try the steamed black mussels with herbed fries. Nothing says brunch like a morning cocktail so if you can handle the heat, try a sassy Bloody Mary with chipotle vodka and a spicy pickle.

Caroline’s Seaside Cafe
Caroline’s Seaside Café by Giuseppe is located at the UCSD Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Its’ goal is to serve sustainable organic California cuisine, but Caroline’s brunch is what drew us in. From 8 AM to 3 PM Saturday thru Sunday, you can enjoy both breakfast and lunch, with healthy options to choose from for each.
What to get:
Try one of their egg scrambles, like the smoked salmon egg scramble or the Mediterranean egg scramble and wash it down with a traditional mimosa or bloody Mary. If you’re feeling lunch, enjoy a crisp salad or a burger straight from the griddle. You can enjoy your lunch with a list of beverages ranging from beer to wine to a refreshing margarita.
