If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.


Fresh Happenings

Crust Pizzeria recently opened its third location in the Solana Beach Town Centre, featuring handcrafted New York-style pizza, pastas, salads, and a selection of craft beer and wine. The neighborhood restaurant, which also has locations in La Costa and Carmel Valley, emphasizes giving back to the community, supporting local schools and sports teams as well as the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce. Stop by for a slice at 124 Solana Hills Dr.

Street Food

For the past several years, food trucks seem to have taken over the culinary scene in cities around the world. This modern dining option offers quick, gourmet food – anytime, anywhere. Mobile cuisine encompasses everything from burgers, hot dogs, tacos, and barbecue to grilled cheese sandwiches, bacon, macaroni and cheese, vegan food, and international fusions – each with their own unique twist. When you’re craving something delightfully different (and convenient!) try one of the many food trucks cruising through North San Diego County.
