WE stopped here with friends after dining at The Inn. I was already full but I managed to eat the most amazing gluten free peanut better cookie I have ever had! Thumbs up...fresh salads and sandwiches as well!

I was gifted an Apple pie from Thyme in the Ranch today. I live near Julian and have eaten just about every different apple pie in the area. I am not necessarily a huge fan of apple pie but the pie I had today was delicious. Flakey not soggy crust. The apples were tart and sweet, but not too sweet.... More

A charming bistro that offers locally grown produce for delicious salads, fresh made soups and baked goods and is a favorite for locals in a french cottage setting. The staff is friendly the decor inspiring and available for purchase. Be prepared for a wait but well worth it. Perfect place to take a friend or family member for a nice... More

This is a good local place with very good and very fresh food. It is small so lines could take time, not much seating as well. We have been going for amost 20 years. It is very cute and quaint.

Had lunch here 2 days in a row. The food is exceptional and the atmosphere is quaint. The desserts are incredible, the lunches are creative and portions are quite large. Each time we were here there were long lines. It is well worth the wait.

What we'll prepared home cooked food and divine baked goodies. We had a fantastic cup of coffee, zucchini bread and quiche. You have to have the quiche every time!

I just adore dropping by this cozy spot for a lovely lunch, whatever the season... Eat inside or out, grab your table before you stand in line to order, it can get very crowded. I usually go for the whole show, soup, salad sandwich or hot plate and of course, one of their bakery items for dessert (and possibly one... More

This place is so cozy...if my mother, grandmother and aunt (all amazing cooks and bakers) lived together this place is what their home would be. Really special! My aunt took me to lunch a few months before my wedding which would be held at The Inn. The lunch was amazing. Everything we had was fresh, ripe, and delicious. Fast forward... More

This is the perfect local gathering spot for breakfast and lunch. The quiche and frittatas are fantastic. They are also very well known for their baked goods. You have to stop here if you are in the village of Rancho Santa Fe!
