Olive Oil Organic Cafe

Drop what you're doing and run, do not walk, to Olive Oil Organic Cafe on SDSU's campus right now.  Well, I should amend that to read "drive within the speed limit" since we are in San Diego... but I think you understand my point.

Nearly six months after I moved into Hillcrest I finally went to the neighborhood's weekly farmer's market.  The market is every Sunday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and I've had very little excuse for not going before.  After going to the La Jolla Farmer's Market with my parental units during their visit I decided I had to make it a biweekly visit... or at least go more often than I have been.  Having grown up in the frigid tundra of upstate New York I'm not used to having such great produce and weather year round but I'm finally committed to making it a habit.

While meandering through the Hillcrest Farmer's Market I happened upon Olive Oil Organic Cafe.  The display prominently advertised gluten free cookies, cupcakes, etc.  I figured there would be one or two gluten free options so you can imagine my shock when every single option was gluten free.

And they were giving out plentiful samples so I had a great time checking out lots of different treats.  The treats were all delicious and they had a huge variety on display at the farmer's market.  I know the Cafe is located on SDSU's campus but I'm not quite sure where; check the cafe's website for more details.

This is definitely my new go to place when I'm in need of a gluten free dessert in San Diego.  The woman working at the booth also told me that all of their sandwiches can also be made gluten free.  I'll check out the cafe's location on SDSU's campus and report back.

The Café visits a few different farmer's markets in the San Diego area:

OB Market on Wednesday
SDSU market on Thursday
Little Italy on Saturday
Leucadia on Sunday
Hillcrest on Sunday

Do you love it or do you love it?
