Fig Tree Cafe

It has been way too long since I blogged and for that I apologize - life has been busy!  I'll try and get back to a regular pace and with some upcoming trips planned it shouldn't be a problem.

Last weekend I spent a great Sunday with my friends Kalie and Kasey at San Diego's Liberty Station. It's an old Naval Training Center that is now a mixed-use property with lots of great restaurants like Tender Greens, Luna Grill, and this blog's featured restaurant, Fig Tree Café.

I have been to Fig Tree Café's location in San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood but never to the Liberty Station location.  It's nestled in Liberty Station off of the street so the patio is a great option.  My biggest complaint about San Diego (and southern California in general) is that there aren't enough nice patios!  New Yorkers know how to appreciate the warm weather with rooftops, patios, sidewalk cafés but that same vibe doesn't exist here in SoCal and it's a shame given our awesome weather.  Regardless of the lack of people watching at Fig Tree the patio was still excellent.

More importantly than the patio, of course, is the food.  Fig Tree helpfully marks all of its food items "GF" if they can be made as such.  It's a super helpful guide and the restaurant offers a lot of gluten free options including french toast!  You can check out the Liberty Station location's menu here.  I stuck with my tried-and-true order of Huevos Rancheros because I didn't want to risk ordering something I didn't like.  I somewhat regretted my decision when I saw Kasey's (non-gluten free) french toast brought out because it looked awesome but I wasn't complaining about my Huevos Rancheros as they were delicious.  The portions were enormous and definitely enough to fill me up for the rest of the day.

Fig Tree Eatery is a great San Diego staple with a huge menu and lots of great gluten free options.

Do you love it or do you love it?
