Great La Jolla Cove Restaurants

Cove House Head here for fresh California fare in a beachy atmosphere steps away from the cove.  They serve breakfast and lunch. On the seasonal menu, you’ll find delicious avocado toast, fish tacos, ceviche, and the signature “Sam I Am” Green Eggs (a tribute to Dr. Seuss, who lived in La Jolla) to pair with various wines, beers, spritzers, and mimosas.

Brockton Villa If you’re searching for where to eat in La Jolla Cove with a close-up look at the ocean and cove activity, this is your place.  The historic cottage serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. It’s particularly famous for brioche french toast called Coast Toast and the several variations of Meg’s Eggs in addition to nice salads and seafood.

George’s Ocean Terrace This is typically where we take out-of-town guests to lunch when the weather is beautiful (and it usually is). The rooftop restaurant is located on Prospect Street and boasts panoramic views and excellent California cuisine. Order the fish tacos and black bean soup. Don’t forget to make a reservation.

Bobboi Gelato For dessert or a quick snack to keep the kids refueled during your day out, it’s easy to walk up from the cove for authentic, housemade Italian gelato. You can opt for a common flavor like strawberry or go with something more outside-the-box like charcoal vanilla. They usually have a vegan flavor on offer, too.
