I've never walked into a restaurant and felt more like I had walked directly into my dream home. I wanted to eat there and live there all at the same time. Searsucker is a must-visit for all San Diego travelers, and after finding the 850+ reviews in Yelp, apparently I'm not the only one who feels this way.

My wandering eyes kept finding design treats all over the restaurant. I'm a lover of exposed lightbulbs, and there were plenty near our table to keep me preoccupied. The marble tabletops were beautiful, and I loved the rough wood and rope. Basically, I plan on copying everything for my apartment.

As brunch aficionados, Bianca & I scoured the menu for breakfast treats, only pausing to order mimosas. We had to stop our waiter more than once to get the scoop on mystery menu items like the "one foot in the grave" or the "mcpuffin in the morning". In the end we settled on one sweet order, and one savory, with the idea to split between the two of us.

{bourbon brown butter french toast}

{chive turkey - blackberry jam, ricotta-herb, radish, sprouts on sourdough}

The food was tasty, but I certainly didn't doubt that it would be. Honestly, the french toast wasn't my favorite...BUT before you go not ordering it the next time you visit - I don't actually like french toast. I'm still contemplating why my brain lapsed and I forgot that little tidbit while we ordered. The turkey sandwich had just the right amount of sweet to balance out the flavorful radishes, and the sourdough was soft perfection.  I'd definitely order it again.


  1. Wow! That place looks really welcoming! I love the decor...and how do you not love french toast?! I don't eat eggs anymore, but I used to and french toast was one of my favorite breakfast foods!

    1. Haha I don't know why I don't like it! I feel like I should (clearly, since I ordered it), but never like how spongy it ends up being. I can't get past that texture! The thought of uncooked eggs freaks me out...
