One of the few restaurants with a view that's also worth eating at, Brockton Villa is tucked in an historic cottage on a hillside above La Jolla cove. Food is served all day, but this dining spot excels at brunch and lunch when ocean views are best. Snag a seat by the fireplace and start the day with the soufflé-like orange-scented Coast FrenchToast, breakfast tacos, or the popular blue crab-cake eggs Benedict. For lunch enjoy the crab cakes as sliders, a lobster roll,
or chopped Mediterranean salad. During the late-afternoon social hour, a bottle of wine and artisan cheese board are only $30.
