By Jenny Montgomery

Caffeine is star at Del Mar café, while food is an afterthought

Company Pub & Kitchen is uneven but earnest

Poway’s answer to the gastropub is better than suburban chain restos

By Jenny Montgomery
Company Pub & Kitchen is trying to bring the humble-yet-sophisticated feel that defines a gastropub to this corner of the county, and it gets points for coming close.

Relaxed atmosphere and tasty but unmemorable tapas

By Jenny Montgomery
Using grapes from the owner's father's vineyard in Sonoma, as well as ones from around Southern California and Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe, Solterra (934 N. Coast Hwy. 101) makes its own tasty blends of wine right there in the vast, trendy space.

Gordy’s should be your go-to North County bakery
