Enjoy a Great Breakfast
at Cafe Elysa in Carlsbad Village by the Sea
Café Elysa in downtown Carlsbad Village is a great place for breakfast, especially on the weekends.
Within view of the ocean, along the coast road for great people watching, with terrific breakfast food and mostly outdoor seating to enjoy our terrific Southern California winter weather (sit by one of the firepits if you need to), Café Elysa is a favorite of mine, and lots of visitors and residents.
There are all sorts of pastries, omelettes and breakfast sandwiches, but my very favorite food is the coconut vanilla custard-stuffed French Toast (bottom pic). Indeed it is just about the only thing I eat there!
No doubt it is calorie rich, but who cares. After breakfast you take a walk for a mile or so on the beach or along the boardwalk to work off the calories and the guilt. A wonderful way to spend time relaxing by the sea in Carlsbad on a gorgeous Saturday morning.
