Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.

"Sunday Brunch menu is a lovely mix of breakfast and lunch dishes. Egg dishes are very elegant and really good. Lunch dishes are always excellent whatever day of the week. Service is first class and, of course, the scenic beach location is one of the best in SoCal."

"Good reasonably priced lunch menu but our first choice was not available and we were not told until after we had ordered.
It was a very hot day and the restaurant was not adequately air conditioned and the wine not chilled enough.

An Evening at Cafe Luna has best been described as "A Celestial Dining Experience"<br />Each and every item on our menu, including our savory nightly specials, are hand-crafted to order with you, our guest, in mind. According to owner, Susan Haywood, "Our word-of-mouth reputation brings in new customers but it's the food that keeps them coming back." Café Luna was named "San Diego's Best Kept Secret" from San Diego Home & Garden readers. In addition Café Luna has been awarded 1st place for "Best Italian Food" on the channel 10 A-List. Some of Café Luna's signature dishes are our Tornadoes Gorgonzola, our Fusilli Umbriaco and our highly requested Rosetta - a homemade pasta sheet rolled with ham and Swiss cheese that's sliced and baked with a Parmesan cream sauce. In addition to exceptional food & service, Café Luna also has an extensive wine list and a full bar. The atmosphere is romantic yet comfortable. We also offer off site catering, ask for our General Manager, Jamie Wimmer.
