Walk or bike to this neighborhood treat. Great place to meet or have a breakfast of your choice. Outdoor seating in a cozy home-like setting. Bring your dog and settle in with your newspaper. Hidden away behind the bamboo plants.

I enjoyed the Stratford Scramble. It was a delicious blend of eggs, potatoes, avocado, and bacon with toast! The fresh orange juice was great as well. They had a lot to choose from, so if I'm ever in the area again, I'll be sure to stop by and try something new. The wait staff was very helpful and friendly as... More

We lucked out in finding the Stratford on a short drive from Encinitas. The day we visited they were serving a cauliflower soup and said it was the "best cauliflower soup you've ever tasted" (or something akin to that recommendation). My husband and I ordered a Basil Pecan Chicken salad to share, which was delicious- though I felt the recommended... More

This is a wonderful small cafe on a side street in Del Mar. It was early on a weekday morning, and we just had coffee, tea and pastry. Very secluded, lots of trees for shading, all outdoor seating. Very charming. Lunch menu looked great. Several groups of locals meeting there for breakfast/coffee - always a good sign! Half a block... More

Best place for breakfast. Hidden place, simple but with delicious food and dog friendly as well. I have ordered eggs Benedict, Açai bowl, croissant sandwich and all choices were well done. First, you have to stand in line to order your food and then they bring to your table.

Stumbled upon this courtyard cafe while walking around Del Mar on New Year's Day. Lots of breakfast and lunch options. Fun find and would definitely visit again.

Multiple breakfast options, all tasty and many healthy options. A favorite spot for locals, surfers, and tourists informed enough to know about the Cafe. Lovely outdoor and informal venue, the assorted mixed scrambles for breakfast and the lunch sandwiches and salads are the best in town.

great little place to start a morning in Del Mar. Before venturing to San Diego or heading beach side this is a great little place to stop in and feel like a local. Great coffee and amazing dishes at an affordable price. The waffles and smoothies are my suggestion but all the items on the menu looked so appetizing our... More
