Cute and casual for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Whatever meal you’re feeling, there’s sure to be something to delight at Fig Tree Cafe. Visit the Pacific Beach location for an outdoor dining experience reminiscent of La Jolla’s The Cottage restaurant, amongst living planets, sunlight, and ocean breezes. Hillcrest offers mostly indoor seating, with some outside. However, living fig trees inside the restaurant continue to give this Fig Tree location its special brand of earthy goodness, mixing living trees and plants with industrial brick and lighting details.

Breakfast recommendations: eggwich, coffee cake, california omelets, fruit pancakes, and mimosas. Insider tip: when you order a carafe of mimosas, order half orange juice and half cranberry juice for a unique breakfast experience!

Lunch/Dinner recommendations: grilled turkey panini, foccacia bread, gnocci, and specials!

Seating is fairly easy to find at both restaurants, no reservations really needed. Even on weekends and holidays, it’s easy to find a table for a large party without a reservation. Service is fast and friendly, with a good price point. Screen shot 2013-05-06 at 12.02.20 PM
