March 9, 2022

Are you looking for new and exciting places to get brunch with your friends? San Diego is full of great places to enjoy that seem to just always fly under the radar. We’re going to tell you all about some of the great options available to you.


Are you looking for the best tacos in Southern California? Then, you need to try Puesto! There is indoor/outdoor seating, a tantalizing menu, and food that is to die for, like ceviche, tacos, and salads. Some of the taco options include Tamarindo shrimp, mushrooms, lamb, Maine lobster, Baja fish, and chicken. 

Are you looking to get a little rowdy with the girls? They have got authentic agave spirits ready to make it a brunch you never forget, depending on how much agave you indulge in that is. 

Buona Forchetta

At Liberty Station, there is a fun little restaurant called Buone Forchetta’s, and it is celebrated for its homemade pizza selection. They have new specials every day, but their pizzas are simply the best. You have so many other options if you are not into pizzas, such as pasta, salads, salmon, lamb shank with risotto, and more. They even have great lunch specials, so it is perfect for brunch on a budget. 


Located in the Hotel del Coronado, Serẽa is so breathtaking as a location, let alone a restaurant. The menu focuses on Mediterranean food with tons of seafood options and seasonal ingredients. It is fancy, so get ready; the fish can either be prepared over an open fire and then it is deboned at the table right in front of you! 

They have got a stunning spot with waterfront views and decor to match that beachy aesthetic with a Mediterranean flair. Be sure to try their unique cocktails, like their signature Fugu Del, a cocktail with Beluga vodka, Marcona almond orgeat, Meyer lemon, some champagne, and caviar on the side. It is worth a try at least once in your lifetime!


Coastline is a stunning restaurant with views of the Pacific Ocean and has an all-around great vibe. It is everything you would want from a restaurant for brunch. Sadly this restaurant is almost hidden away, so many people seem to completely overlook it. But now that you know all about it, it is time to go and try it for yourself. 

Some items to try are their great starters like charcuterie and cheese board, parmesan truffle fries, and the calamari. Enjoy some stunning seafood mains like Baja Maji Mahi fish tacos, and sip on cocktails or mimosas with your friends.
