Hill Street Cafe ~ Oceanside

I’m really excited about this post. I have ignored this place for too long.

It was recommended to me a few times but I always passed it by. I’m sad I did, I really liked it and I will be back. I met someone here for a business meeting earlier this week and knew I had made a mistake on not visiting it sooner.

It ticks all the boxes..Local (with history on top of that), fresh produce, a lot of which comes from their own farm, and it’s a certified green restaurant.

It’s funny you’re going to see a lot more pics of the restaurant than the food, which is reverse for me. This is not a comment on the food, which I loved, it is more of a testimony to the space. Also to the fact I had been eating like a little piggy all day.

Coffee bar. They have an extensive drink list of hot and cold coffee drinks as well as craft beers.  They also have my favorite Kombucha from Living Tea. (They do Kombucha Mimosas too.)

OK onto food.

It is hard to get a Portabella perfect. This one was as good as any burger (and I’m a hard core carnivore…I just love veggies.)
