Milton's Deli, Cupcake Love and the Oceanside Music Fest

Our weekly rundown of the best of North County San Diego continues


Published:

Milton’s Deli and Restaurant

One of my favorite breakfast burritos is the one served up at Milton’s Deli and Restaurant, but that just goes to show you that a good old Jewish delicatessen simply can’t be beat, regardless of cuisine. Milton’s is a time-honored breakfast spot of choice for local movers and shakers—not just from North County, but also from all over San Diego. (One recent morning county treasurer and tax collector Dan McAllister was eating breakfast a table away from celebrated San Diego land-use attorney Matt Peterson.) Unlike most delis in these parts, Milton’s is not part of a chain; it was founded in 1995 by Barry Robbins and David Levy, of Chicago Brothers fame, and named after David’s dad, Milton. The real draw is its food, with an incredible menu of more than 200 items (even the takeout menu numbers eight pages!). If you’re in the mood for traditional Jewish deli food, you’ve come to the right place: Milton’s blintzes, matzo brye, pastrami-on-rye and chopped liver are all New York-caliber. But you can also sample top-notch crab cakes, hummus, grilled ahi salad and chicken pot pie — not to mention those cheesy, overstuffed breakfast burritos.

Cupcake Love

Located in the Beachwalk Shopping Center in Solana Beach, on the old Coast Highway just north of Via de la Valle, Cupcake Love each week has a special flavor — on top of its regular menu, which includes dainty little cakes ($3.25 each) with names such as Chocolate Peanut Butter Ecstasy (chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting), The Party Girl (white velvet cake with Italian butter cream icing), and Coconut Cream Dream (coconut cake topped with butter cream and rolled in coconut). I tell myself I’m holding out for a return appearance of the magical, mystical pumpkin cupcake, but to tell you the truth I’ll most likely be back this week, regardless. It’s addicting — that’s the only way to describe it.

On the agenda

The ninth annual Oceanside Music Festival kicks off Tuesday, October 12, with the John Steiger Memorial Performing Arts Scholarship Gala at the Oceanside Museum of Art. The 6 p.m. show will feature performances by Steam Powered Giraffe, Damsels in Dis Dress and student vocalists Katey Norris and Sammie Duffy. In addition, the El Camino High School Music Theatre Ensemble will play selections from Forbidden Broadway. The theme of this year’s festival, which runs through October 24, is “Keeping the Music Alive ... in Our Schools and in Our Community.” The festival is produced by the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation and is intended to encourage young musicians and drum up community support for their talents. Five more concerts will follow the October 12 kickoff, including a High School Showcase Oct. 14 at MiraCosta College’s Music Concert Hall and an October 24 Big Band concert at Mission San Luis Rey featuring Tom Morrow and the Oceanside Society Orchestra.
