I've been to San Diego/LaJolla numerous times but driving up La Jolla Blvd, didnt notice this small gem. Now that I found it, it will be a part of every trip to the area.
Our hotel "'free" breakfast across the street was over too early for us. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as we went instead to Vahik's for breakfast It's so good, we returned several additional times every day of our trip. The bagel sandwiches are delicious--we ordered the Mediterranean and lox/cream cheese on "good grain" bagel.
The espresso drinks are excellent. We had both almond and regular lattes. Vahik, according to a sign back where the brewed coffee is, gets the beans from a local specialty roaster --vive la difference!
This is a popular neighborhood place. Vatic said he's been here about ten years. There's evidently a loyal local following. It was busy but not overwhelming or noisy, every time we were here both for breakfast and lunch. There's a comfortable outdoor area under an awning. The owner, and the assistant who was there, are pleasant and patient, even during busy times.
Perfect start to a LaJolla day? Start at Vahik's, order a takeaway espresso drink, and a sandwich, and stroll to nearby (5 minutes walk) Windandsea Beach where you can enjoy the Pacific ocean view. We'll be back for more!
