      Breakfast
      • San Diego, United States

      You can't go hungry here. One of their farm-fresh, locally-sourced entrees is more than enough to feed two people. Be prepared to take leftovers and if you're planning for brunch get in line early).

      Fiesta IslandSeptember 9, 2011
      Beach
      • San Diego, United States

      Justin McLachlan, author of Time Up, here. Fiesta Island doesn't fare well in my story, but it's beautifully untouched park lined by beaches and coves where you can walk your dogs off leash.

      A key scene from one of Boxfire Press' short stories, Ian, seems like it takes place right outside the Mountain Lair. True or not, we just love the Hatfield's salad bar.
