Petco Park

Nothing says summer like a day at the ball game—with some of the best concession snacks of any stadium, including Lucha Libre burritos, Ballast Point taps, and Baked Bear ice cream sandwiches.padres

 

Bottega Americano

Mangia, mangia, then mangia some more at the warehouse-like Italian eatery where pasta is made on-site and is best served with their meatballs. Happy hour includes $5 wines, half-off cocktails, and wood-fire pizzas. Stop by their mini market for olive oils, cookbooks, and greeting cards.bottegaamericano

Copa Vida

The café is divided into three concepts: a morning self-service station with prebrewed coffee and a cash box for the honor-system payment of $2.50 per cup; barista-made espresso drinks; and a third area with classes on latte art and tea education. There’s also on-tap kombucha, breakfast burritos, and salads.copa_vida

 

Central Library

After a relocation to the East Village in 2013 and design by local starchitect Rob Quigley, the city’s library hub comprises nine floors, views of the Coronado Bridge, an art gallery, and an impressive gift shop.sdpubliclibrary

 

Half Door Brewing Co.

Half Door Brewing Co.

Don’t be surprised if you feel right at home at this brewpub. It’s located in an early-1900s house with a second-floor balcony that’s perfect for pretzel bites, beers brewed in-house, and those summer breezes.halfdoorbrewingco

 

Harvest by the Patio

The team behind The Patio on Lamont has opened a healthy eatery, sourcing from purveyors like Stehly Farms and Be Wise Ranch. But it’s not just about coconut lime ceviches and antioxidant salads; they also have cocktails like the Rosé All Day with lavender rose syrup and a rose petal garnish.harvestbythepatiosd

 

Cafe Chloe

A gold standard for charming bistros, the French café serves up people-watching, pommes frites, and poached egg with wild mushrooms for brunch.cafechloesd

 

Quartyard

Quartyard

Their lease at 11th and Market may be up this month, but the outdoor park will bring its hipster-cool mix of food, beer, live music, and green spaces to 13th and Market later this year.quartyardsd

 

Wild Dove

Breezy dresses and eco-friendly fabrics are the focus at this women’s boutique. Look for brands like Amour Vert, plus local lines, like JaxKelly. wilddovesd
