oceanside brunching in {del mar}….



For a lovely brunch or lunch by the ocean, take your dearest to dine at Kitchen 1540 in the L'Auberge Hotel in Del Mar. Like a mini sun-filled vacation, the modern space surely feels like an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. The almond french toast was a decadent breakfast treat while the beet salad offered a refreshing lunch-perfect palate cleanser.

Final thoughts…4 out of 5 happy ladies for calm ambiance, service, and delicious fare.

  1. I work so close to 1540 it’s nuts I still haven’t been there. It’s on my “date night” list – I need to get on that! 🙂

  2. So glad you liked it! We have to go back for lunch sometime before you head off to LaLa — am craving that beet salad again. —e.

  3. Thank you so much for suggesting this place ! I was trying to find the perfect place to take my mom for her birthday, and boy, THIS WAS IT!! WE went for breakfast and it was DELICIOUS!! what a hidden gem in Del Mar!!
