"You can choose from any of their homemade cookies, brownies, or even donuts to hold together this decadent sandwich. They have a wide range of original cookie and ice cream flavors to pick from, and you can even get your sandwich rolled in a topping ranging from brownie bites to Fruity Pebbles. #SpoonTip: This treat tastes better at the beach."
"If you’ve got a sweet tooth and like to Instagram your desserts, try Baked Bear!. They have the best ice cream sandwiches in town. These freshly baked cookies topped with delicious craft ice cream will leave you and your followers drooling."
"The Cravory is a San Diego-based cookie-only bakery known for unique and delicious flavor creations. Their first flagship cookie shop is open in Point Loma but they also sell cookies at various San Diego Farmers' Markets and via an online retail shop where cookies can be ordered by the dozen or in monthly subscriptions shipped freshly baked directly to your door. The Cravory has 11 signature cookie flavors including Red Velvet and Ultimate Chocolate Chip, as well as six new seasonal cookies created each month."
"Your fam will love digging in to The Cravory's April cookie flavors from circus animal and caramel churro to chocolate velvet and oatmeal chocolate chip. Customize your order with a mix and match box for pick-up. Even more, try the Take and Bake chocolate chip cookies to make fresh at home."
"At least that’s the government’s position, despite the fear and misgivings of some in our citizenry. I’m not here to settle that discussion from any public policy standpoint. But I am here to say that cookies have been essential to my own well-being, while at home in isolation."

"This decadent, artisanal homemade ice cream shop was founded by a mother-daughter duo and a visit here is a doubly sweet treat because your ice cream is served with a chocolate chip cookie!. All of JoJo's Creamery ice creams, cookies, waffle cones and sauces are made from scratch. Ice cream flavors include elevated versions of classics and interesting, flavorful delights such as Cayenne Sea Salt Caramel."
"Ice cream and cookies are the specialties at this mother-daughter owned Encinitas spot. Made from organic dairy from Straus Family Creamery, JoJo’s creates out-of-this-world flavors such as bananas foster, cayenne sea salt, and peanut butter honeycomb. For those with allergies, JoJo’s offers several dairy-free flavors and gluten-free cookies and waffle cones."
"Lick into a scoop of artisanal ice cream at this family-run shop in Encinitas’ Lumberyard Shopping Center where everything — from the caramel to the cookie dough — is made from scratch. All the 14+ flavors use organic, local ingredients. The shop also offers non-dairy options using coconut and cashew milk, plus gluten-free waffle cones."

As of this writing, their specialty flavors are Snickerdoodle Cupcake, Pumpkin Choc Chip, Frozen Hot Chocolate (hello chocolate mousse with mini marshmallows and powdered sugar!) and a Biscoff Lava; which if you’ve never had a Biscoff cookie, make this the one you try first!"
"Although there are quite a few bakeries, donut shops, and ice cream parlors in San Diego that offer vegan options, Starry Lane Bakery is the only place I’ve found that offers 100% vegan desserts. And, might I add, really good vegan desserts. The great thing about this bakery is that it’s good for anyone who is sensitive to food allergens, since they make all of their desserts without the top 10 most common allergens."
"Born from the minds of two sisters – one with life-threatening food allergies – all of the bakery’s products are Top 10 allergen-free. Starry Lane values the health and safety of their customers, and they achieve that through transparency and delicious food."

"Start the day with donuts and coffee from Nomad Donuts, which will fuel you without leaving you too full for a day of action.
Catch a morning surf lessons from Surfari Surf School at north Mission Beach, and enjoy some prime people-watching on the Pacific Beach Boardwalk while you catch your breath. You’ll have worked up quite an appetite, so sate it the way a local surfer would—with fish tacos from Oscars Mexican Seafood."
"Dubbed the best doughnuts in San Diego last year by San Diego Magazine, Nomad has must-try flavors that change frequently but could include creative takes like chocolate potato chip and orange cream chamomile. The North Park restaurant recently expanded its breakfast menu, which includes breakfast sandwiches made with their own wood-fired bagels."
"Clearly they’re Very Good at everything they bake here since it’s a 3rd generation run bakery. Recipes and their old-fashioned baking style have been passed down for so long; which is why they’re here to stay. Of course they have the classic cookie flavors (choc chip, peanut butter, oatmeal and others), but they’re famous for their daily smiley face and surfing cookies."
"Famous for making old-fashioned doughnuts, this bakery is a hit with the locals. They also recommend the banana nut bread as well as coffee cakes. You can choose from a wide range of flavors with the coffee cakes, such a strawberry cream cheese to satisfy any sweet tooth."
"Truluck's La Jolla has been recognized by many of San Diego's local publications for a good reason. Come hungry, because you'll want it all from crab claws to Lobster Bisque to perfectly cooked prime cuts of steak with sauce choices such as Chimichurri. Truly "a getaway for the senses," pull your car up to the valet at the Aventine, right in front of the restaurant, and stay for a leisurely meal."
"Truluck’s is known for the fresh seafood that is sourced from their own fisheries. The restaurant opens at 5 pm nightly to serve dinners. This is an upscale seafood and steak chain that offers moderate to reasonable prices for well-prepared meals."
"A post shared by The Old Spaghetti Factory (@oldspaghettifactory) on Jul 20, 2018 at 7:56am PDT. This unique Italian restaurant features antique lighting, exquisitely stained glass displays, big, colorful booths and a trolley car to dine in. Their three-course meals are not just for adults, kids 12 and under get to enjoy it too."
