I was invited to check out Café Cantata in Del Mar for breakfast and coffee. My girl and I met up with our friends to check out the new spot. Café Cantata is awesome for a quick stop to grab coffee and a meal or to stay and work a while. I wish this place was located in Mira Mesa because I would be there every week.
The atmosphere is that of a coffee shop fit with tables and couches. The chalkboard menu and Serving Great Food sign bring a hipster mellow vibe. The restaurant is connected to a stationary and gift shop.
The menu items are all fresh and homemade. The prices are decent especially for Del Mar. It’s a great spot to meet up with friends for coffee or a meal.
We ordered the smoked salmon scramble and the gluten free french toast with strawberry compote. Both dishes were top notch. The salmon dish was pretty unique to any other breakfast I have tried and I am a huge smoked salmon fan. I couldn’t get enough. The Cafe Cantata latte was a delicious blend of a regular latte and chai tea. Fab!
I’m not quite sure how they managed to create such a comforting feel in a strip mall but it totally works. I love that the windows open up to the outside bringing in that natural lighting.
Have you been to Cafe Cantata? What was your favorite dish?
I was invited for a preview tasting of the restaurant. All opinions are my own.
