Best Breakfast/Lunch in town! – We’ve known John Randall and his crew since they took over Curbside a few years ago. I fear to give this eclectic little Vista bistro a thumbs-up, for fear that it may become even more well-known! We hardly can get a table after church, and for good reason... The food, atmosphere and wait staff are exceptional; haven’t had a bad/mediocre plate there in the several years we’ve been fans of Curbside, and they always remember to greet us by name (so refreshing and extraordinary in this Fast Food/Everything else world we now live in). Our B’fast/Lunch place of choice for out of town guests or anyone else we want to impress with Vista cuisine and culture.
Best for breakfast – Curbside Cafe is San Diego County's own Paris Sidewalk Cafe. Paris cafes are possibly the most well-known image of the City of Light. Analogous to Paris, San Diego County's own Curbside Cafe is becoming one of the most well-known images for Vista, the City of Art.
World-renown Paris cafes are more than places to sip coffee, they are institutions in Paris, magnets for tourists, cultural phenomena. No trip to Paris is complete without a relaxing, long sit with some fascinating art-viewing and people-watching at a Paris cafe... Curbside Cafe is Southern California's Paris sidewalk cafe/art gallery where people come to sip strong, freshly ground, dark roast coffees, espressos, and fun blends like Mexican Mocha, Peppermint Patty, Monkey Mocha, Snow Cap, Almond Joy, and Milky Way, and to bring their out-of-town/international friends/family, many of whom request to visit the Curbside Cafe for the first time and many who request to visit again because the food is "amazing." Wanting to come back for the consistently great food, they also want to engage in the cafe's rich, intellectual consortium, to view art, to people watch, and to say hello to the owner, John Randall, on whom they depend to be there, friendly, consistent, steady. (When we were there, an eight-year-old personally handed him a handwritten Thank You card for one of his contributions, which he modestly downplayed. He thinks you should always generously contribute to your community, and not ask for fanfare.) People also flock to Curbside Cafe to celebrate different occasions, like birthdays. The deceptively large, 2,200-sq.-ft., cafe easily accommodates, seating 100 comfortably inside and on the patio.
