I woke up early because I really wanted to go to Donut Bar to try one of their famous donuts but my sisters and dad didn’t care as much and slept in. I’m not someone who doesn’t mind waking somebody up. Unless one tells me to wake him or her up at a certain time, I will not wake him or her up. With that said, I didn’t wake my sisters and dad. Because we skipped breakfast, our day began with brunch.
The Broken Yolk Cafe:7670 El Camino Real
Carlsbad, CA 92009
b/t La Costa Ave & El Camino Real
I ordered their Golden State Benedict which was described on their website as a toasted English muffin with sliced grilled tomato, avocado, Applewood-smoked bacon and two poached eggs topped with Hollandaise sauce and Sriracha. I had a funny and embarrassing moment when the waiter took my order. Instead of saying, “I’m gonna get a Golden State Benedict,” I said, “I’m gonna get a Golden GATE Benedict.” Hahaha I finally caught what my mistake was as he was writing down my order and then I jumped in saying, “Haha I meant Golden State Benedict, not Golden Gate Benedict.” The waiter smiled. My sisters giggled. Joke aside, Egg Benedict is my favorite breakfast so I’m satisfied that I had the chance to try the Golden State one.
Our next stop was La Jolla Cove because Sea Lions of course! The smell in the air was awful! It smelled like shrimp paste but ya know I really wanted a pic with a sea lion soooo
La Jolla Cove: Coast Blvd, San Diego, CA 92037
Trying a new coffee shop was a must!
Better Buzz Coffee: The Lab3745 Mission Blvd

b/t Queenstown Ct & Portsmouth Ct
I loved the location this coffee shop was placed in. I wish there was a Better Buzz nearby me every day.
They have yummy açaí bowls too
We went to a nearby little beach and harbor to relax
When our time there was over, we drove off to eat a nice homemade dinner at our cousins’ apartment. They prepared BBQ, rice, salad, lemonade, and iced blueberry infused water for us. Everything was delicious. We ate outdoors and the weather was lovely. After we all pitched in to clean up, we took a nice nighttime walk to a village. We were going for ice cream but they sadly were closed by the time we arrived. But ya know when God closes a door, He’s opening a better one for us. Eclipse Chocolate became our new destination.
Eclipse Chocolate: 2145 Fern Street, San Diego, CA 92104
This place was unique and interesting! Everything that I saw in there made me excited. They had complimentary self-serve vanilla infused water and samples out of some of their chocolates! There were little clear or cream-colored beads inside the water.
It was pretty late at night so we grabbed something that would be quick for us to eat. Their cupcakes were life changing!
The first cupcake on the left was lavender salted caramel which had chocolate cake, creme fraiche caramel filling, dark chocolate ganache glaze, and lavender sea salt. The one in the middle was blueberry blossom which had yellow cake, blueberry ganache filling, cocoa nib macaron filling, vanilla bean swiss meringue, and candied violet and hibiscus sugar. The last one on the right was chocolate tiramisu which had chocolate cake, coffee caramel syrup, brown sugar mascarpone filling, vanilla bean swiss meringue, and espresso bean. Yum! We divided and devoured all three!
Just as I wish with Better Buzz, I wish with Eclipse Chocolate that is to be nearby me. Go on their website and check out their menus to see why I want to dine there for brunch or dinner so badly.
