I've been reading La Jolla threads, but I don't have enough sense of the geography to figure out what I need to figure out. Here's the situation. Last year, we (me, husband, small child) visited San Diego and spent one day at the beach at the Del Coronado. Lunch was easy. We ate at the outdoor overlooking the beach. If I remember correctly, it was edible but not thrilling and overpriced, but very, very convenient. We played on the beach, we ate lunch, we were back on the beach in 5 minutes.
We're coming back to San Diego, but just for a change of pace, we're thinking about the beach in La Jolla instead. I know we have lots of beach choices and this isn't the place to hash that out, but right now I'm thinking Shell Beach/Children's Pool.
Is there somewhere to go from there to a quick, easy, very casual, my 7 year old pulled on sweatpants over his bathing suit lunch? Something genuinely good would be wonderful. Something not overpriced would also be lovely, but I'm not holding my breath.
If you'd like to suggest a different, small child appropriate beach because of it's proximity to a restaurant that better suits our lunch goals, that would be great.
Are there restaurants walkable from any of the beaches?
As always, many thanks.
It's snowing like crazy here in NY and we're looking forward to arriving in sunny, warm San Diego tomorrow. Although there does seem to be a lot of rain in the forecast for the coming week. Who arranged that?
