The Cottage – La Jolla, CA

I heard yummy things abut this cute house restaurant, so I had to check out The Cottage while my boyfriend and I were in San Diego a couple weeks ago. As always, there was a wait, but it was not so bad since they supplied free coffee and amazing coffeecake that I may have gone back for two or three or more times than I’d like to admit.

We were seated on the patio, which is a nice treat because patio-weather is definitely over in Seattle. My daily coffee is an Americano but since we were on vacation and it was a weekend (calories don’t exist on either of those occasions), I got a Mexican mocha.. with whip.. sure, why not. This is one of those very rare times when I wear lipstick (Stila Outrageous), which is always in vain since I eat so frequently it never stays on.

French toast stuffed with mascarpone and fresh strawberries.

Dungeness crab eggs benedict. My bf and I always get two (or more when we’re feeling really fatty) items and share so the palette gets a taste of multiple flavors, plus it’s fun to try more items.

Btw, this was the outfit I wore in this post. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

    that french toast looks unreal, & so, so yummy!

    loving your glasses with that red lipstick. Yeah i love the idea of wearing a red lip colour out to brunch to make me look awake, but then i drink too much coffee & eat too much food that it quickly fades!

    The place looked great. What I love is the fact that the cottage once was a residential house and was converted into a resto.
