Albertsons was in La Costa next to the famed Omni La Costa Resort and Spa for years – we moved there in 2005 – and convenient for lots of area residents. Back in 2015 due to corporate restructuring and an acquisition, Albertsons disappeared and became Haggen.

Breakfast, and especially brunch, is a popular activity it seems, especially on the weekends

Starbucks remains a popular gathering spot, but let's face it, their breakfast and brunch offerings are pretty limited, so if a good sized meal is on your plate for the day, The Broken Yolk way be just the ticket.
