Healthy Brunches

A hearty meal, sans food coma

  • True Food Kitchen
    Fashion Valley
    The health-food mecca offers quinoa johnnycakes and scrambles made with market veggies or chicken sausage.

  • The Mission
    North Park, East Village, Mission beach
    This famed spot has an extensive gluten-free menu, with ingredients like soy chorizo and farm-fresh egg whites.

  • Claire’s on Cedros
    Solana Beach
    Fun fact about this local hangout specializing in wholesome food: co-founder Claire Allison is the creator of Milton’s Multigrain Bread.

  • Naked Café
    Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Point Loma
    Here, “naked” means “natural.” This NoCo favorite puts an emphasis on whole foods, with a sense of humor (e.g. whole-grain “Tree Hugger” pancakes).

  • Alchemy
    South Park
    Hello, quinoa hush puppies, vegetarian salads, and cage-free egg frittatas.

  • Starlite
    The farm-to-table establishment makes an eggless frittata using a chickpea flour base, which is both gluten-free and vegan.
