La Jolla Village is one of the most beautiful locations in all of San Diego. With its stunning beaches, breathtaking views, and vibrant village atmosphere, it's no surprise that locals and visitors alike flock to this picturesque spot. But what if you're looking for something a little more low-key? Let's explore some of the best ways to enjoy a slow Sunday in La Jolla Village.
In my opinion, one of the best ways to spend a day in La Jolla is to take a leisurely stroll through the village streets. The sidewalks are lined with kitchy boutiques, cafes and restaurants, giving you plenty of options for window shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. That’s why I like to hit up La Jolla Village on a Sunday morning the best.
Better Buzz Coffee
Jumpstarting my day with a delicious surprise - an invigorating cup of Better Buzz Coffee's best drink ever! It's their signature Americano kicked up a notch with creamy and subtly sweet vanilla powder. Not only do I get to enjoy this delicicious vanilla powder at the shop, but it also comes in its own take-home packet which makes me feel like one sophisticated barista right in the comfort of home!
After securing the goods (aka my coffee), I decided to take a stroll down to one of my favorite bookstores, Warwicks. As soon as I step inside the shop, I feel enamored with their vibrant colors and diverse selection of my favorite type of books ranging from cooking guides to classic novels. I relentlessly perused through the extensive selection of aesthetically pleasing hardcover books in the cooking section, I was finally able to make my way to the stationary section where I spent about 30 more minutes exploring all of the notebooks, sketchbooks, pens, pencils, and colorful markers that Warwicks had to offer. If you're a bookworm, an artist or just a stationary girly like me, I highly recommend checking this bookstore out!
Puesto Mexican Restaurant
I absolutely loved their watermelon mezcal margarita; it had a smoky mescal taste and no salt rim, making it the perfect refreshing brunch cocktail. For food, I opted for their delectable green ceviche dish. It was a smaller portion, which I would recommend ordering separately if you are sharing.
The Lot movie theater
I decided to be mindful of my portion size at brunch, as I was about to embark on an exciting and luxurious journey; to watch Avatar: The Way of Water at the most opulent movie theater in San Diego, The Lot.
This theater is a one-of-a-kind experience, boasting top-of-the-line sound and projection systems specially designed to provide an exceptional and comfortable viewing experience. The room's seating consists of luxurious couch-like chairs with individual side tables featuring lamps, and a full menu! That's right, they offer a truly VIP atmosphere with waiters that come and take your food, snack, and drink order while you watch your movie.
Outside they have their very own coffee kiosk which is beautiful and fits the boujie vibes immaculately! I had a simple iced latte and it was very tasty 😋
