Sometimes the best way to make a trip memorable is to find the hidden wonders and live like a local. Hillcrest is a popular San Diego neighborhood with an eclectic range of activities for both tourists and locals to enjoy. The friendly staff of the nearby Pacific Inn Hotel and Suites can recommend a host of activities to make the best of your time there.
Start your morning in Hillcrest at Hash House a Go Go and fill up on their amazing breakfasts, including griddled French toast, farm scrambles, or farm Benedicts. If these options are too extravagant for your taste buds, you can always order the basic two-egg breakfast with potatoes, fruit, and a biscuit.
Walk off your breakfast and head toward the Quince Street Bridge. This route is part of the Seven Bridge Walk as seen in the San Diego Reader. Be prepared for stunning views and continue on to the Spruce Street Bridge, or spend the rest of your morning perusing local bookstores.
After an eventful morning, consider dining at the Bread & Cie café. Their menu includes assorted gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads, pastries, and breads. Cozy up with your new book and indulge at this fragrant bakery and cafe.
For travelers who enjoy the Avant Garde, purchase a ticket to the Hillcrest Landmark Theater, a venue that caters specifically to the distribution and support of independent films. They offer a variety of flicks that have eluded the mainstream movie industry and provide thought-provoking insight to the viewer.
Head to 100 Wines for a delicious menu and outdoor seating perfect during the warmer months. Their specialties include appetizing steaks, flavorful flatbreads, specialty pastas, and ridiculously delicious ribs. Don’t forget to top off your dinner with a seasonal cobbler, a chocolate floreplay, or their signature 100 Wines cinnamon rolls for a tasty treat!
