Original 40 Brewing Company

The owners of U-31 gave us another stop on our North Park brewery hop when they opened this beautifully decorated space in June. Settle into the comfy seating with one of the 14 house beers on tap and some atypical pub eats—baby back adobo ribs, gougères, and Castelvetrano olives. Cheers! original40beer

 

Verbatim Books

Attention, bibliophiles: This rare and used book store tripled its square footage this spring, erecting even more shelves of hardcovers and paperbacks to browse. (Note the artistic display of books stacked to spell their name.) They also regularly host readings and open mic nights. verbatim.books

 

Skin Habit

Skin Habit

Amid the bustle, this small day spa offers a time-out. They specialize in facial treatments at accessible prices—a 55-minute session with a peel, LED light and massage is $60. skinhabit_

 

North Park Breakfast Co.

S’mores waffles, brioche donuts, and chicken confit and grits are some of the dishes that’ll get you out of bed to this new morning spot. It’s a spin-off of the ever-expanding Breakfast Republic chain. npbreakfastco

 

Max and Demetri’s Pizza

Max and Demetri’s Pizza

Craving a late-night slice? This joint slings pies till midnight, with a menu of fun names like the Good Morning Vietnam (braised pork, cabbage, Sriracha, and pickled onions). Order a combo to get two slices and a beer for $12.

 

The Burrito Station Urban Kitchen

The Burrito Station Urban Kitchen

This walk-up window has the standard Cali and surf-and-turf burritos, along with heartier options like breakfast burritos stuffed with chipotle chilaquiles and refried beans. theburritostation

 

Paras News Stand

This store has been a fixture on 30th Street for decades, as the place in San Diego to read all about it—they carry over 4,000 titles. If you want fashion magazines in multiple languages or hard-to-find glossies, they’ve got ’em. Print isn’t dead!

 

North Park Mini Park

Construction will soon begin transforming the empty lot behind the Observatory into a space with pergolas, public seating, and art displays. Expected to open in 2020.
