I concur - socal1, you have to understand that San Diego County is just a tad smaller than Connecticut. Now, if you want to drive upwards of two hours, then we can provide you with several places to go. Also, your request is pretty vague - practically every restaurant in San Diego serves lunch. What sort of food are you talking about? What's your price range?
Solace in Encinitas is very good, as is Blue Ribbon Artisanal Pizzeria.
Pacifica Breeze Cafe in Del Mar has ocean views.
Prep Kitchen in La Jolla is also very good. Unfortunately, I think the Del Mar location is still closed.
Coffee Cup Cafe in La Jolla is great for casual lunch.
do not go to The Beach House in Cardiff. Very sub-par food, which doesn't make up for the views.
