"Lofty Coffee is a community hub for coffee in San Diego, which got its start as a small shop in 2011 on HWY 101 in Encinitas. Now they’ve expanded to four locations and a production facility where beans are roasted and pastries are homemade from scratch. Each location is massively important to its neighborhood, serving up sunny patios for conversation, healthy breakfast dishes, the delicious coffee they're known for and homemade pastries baked fresh daily."
"Lofty Coffee is also a great place to go to in San Diego if you want to have good coffee!. This coffee shop focus on two things in sourcing their coffee. They try to find the coffee that is most delicious and that allows you to try out flavors from all around the world."
"Someday we’ll be able to stop referring to time in pre-and post-pandemic terms, but for now, we’re just so incredibly grateful to our restaurant community for their steadfast dedication and for pressing ever forward when things seemed impossible to overcome. Even more incredible are the fearless entrepreneurs who forged ahead with new ventures despite the uncertainties of opening during an active pandemic. And so it’s with well-deserved thanks and high-fives that we proudly present our list of the most exciting new restaurant openings in San Diego:"
"What is it: The average gaslamp restaurant has nothing on Searsucker, where dramatic interiors, New American fare and a flirty bar scene are all on offer. Why go: An airy dining room with tufted leather banquettes and massive pendants sets the stage for proper sit-down dinners of tomahawk ribeyes and whole grilled branzino. A spirited after-work and weekend crowd clusters around plush couches in the expansive lounge for cocktails and noshable bites including duck fat fries and Philly meatballs."
"Le Parfait Paris is San Diego's newest patisserie and boulangerie. Located in the downtown Gaslamp District, Le Parfait Paris is distinctly chic with its large, open windows and street-side patio. Intentionally minimalistic in design, a bevy of colorful macarons and desserts are housed like fine jewelry in transparent refrigerated cases for roving eyes to adore."

"Step into what feels like a true Italian gelateria at Chocolat Cremerie in the heart of the the Gaslamp. Choose from flavors like Basil Lemon, Chocolate Pear, and Gianduia Chocolate (with hazelnut and almond paste). Wear your stretchy pants — there are also tarts, crepes, and brulées to be had!"
"A post shared by Steph Mernagh (@stephmernagh) on Apr 26, 2016 at 10:03pm PDT. Chocolat Cremerie arguably ranks at the top when it comes to mouthwatering gelato displays. This photo alone gives each of us an intense desire to try out all flavors behind the glass!"
