A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
When Meghan and I landed in San Diego last Sunday, we were ready to grab some brunch. We had gotten up at 4AM, headed to the airport for a 7AM flight, and actually landed almost an hour earlier than expected. I love when pilots take those shortcuts across the middle of the country. Meg called the resort, but they did not offer early check-in, so we hopped on an airport shuttle and headed to the car rental center. I also started searching for the “best place to eat brunch in San Diego.”
Not surprisingly, I came up with one hit when I completed my search: Searsucker in downtown San Diego. We took a look at the menu and decided that this place was just what we were looking for. So, we loaded our bags into the trunk of our rental, popped on the GPS for 611 Fifth Avenue in San Diego and were on our way.
Searsucker is an open, and very cool place to eat. While it was a slightly overcast morning in San Diego, Meghan and I asked if we could dine outside at one of the many high tables lined along the sidewalk. The awning kept away the light morning drizzle. The service was very friendly and attentive. Meg ordered the mushroom, truffle and parmesan egg scramble and I went with the crab, avocado and lemon Benedict.
I really appreciate when a crab cake is mostly crab, and this one did not disappoint. Hardly a breadcrumb was to be found. And of course, since I was in southern CA, the avocado was perfect. The lemon added such a freshness to the dish.
The rain picked up a bit and we moved inside to finish our brunch at the bar. The inside of the restaurant is a great place to hang out on a Sunday morning. The lounge area is broken up with couches and ottomans, a great place to literally lounge with friends. If you are in downtown San Diego ((or in Scottsdale, AZ) I definitely recommend checking out Searsucker.
