Encinitas is a cute little surf town just 30 minutes from Orange County. I wanted to find a brunch place that was healthy but also delicious - Nectarine Grove was my spot. They have a huge menu of both breakfast and lunch items with paleo, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc., options. It's really health conscious and good for you. They have some savory items like pancakes and french toast, or a classic farmers market scramble. I shared the breakfast tacos and a turkey sandwich with a friend and both were great.
The outside space was fun and convivial - everyone was happy to be out enjoying the day. The service was great and they let me try some samples from their draft, homemade kombucha. I liked that their location was so close to other places in Encinitas, so you could walk around and digest afterwards.
