Grab a patio table in the courtyard of this lovely old house and enjoy the people-watching; indoors you'll find faux antiques, appropriately weathered for a lived-in feel. The pastries are fine, but it's the light meals -- breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- that are best. Breakfast includes omelets and waffles, while the rest of the fare is posted on a chalkboard menu. Try the turkey lasagna, chicken Dijon, tuna melt, or one of several hearty entree salads. Exotic iced and hot coffee drinks include the Emerald Isle (espresso, white chocolate, and mint). Other locations are in La Jolla at 1010 Prospect St. (tel. 858/459-1187); in Point Loma at 1018 Rosecrans St. (tel. 619/222-6852); and in the College area near San Diego State University, at 5900 El Cajon Blvd. (tel. 619/286-8434).
