Nestled among the numerous boutiques, salons and print shops, is the charming Brick and Bell Cafe. Walls of rustic red brick call out to passersby to enter the outdoor patio and have a seat. More than 20 different teas and coffees are served complimentary to the variety of sandwiches, salads and soups available for breakfast and lunch. Brick & Bell is one of the busiest cafes in San Diego and manages to provide fast and friendly service. Regulars come for pastries that are direct from the in-house bakery and stay for the social atmosphere.
