I love this restaurant. My daughter gets the Matzo Ball soup every time. My favorite is the pastrami on rye. The bakery is AMAZING. I've sampled almost every dessert there. For cakes, the best is the one with the sliced kiwi's on top. It's a Jewish Delicatessin and the last time I was there I got a box of Hannaka Cookies in the shape of the star of David, Menorah and Drieydl. Where else can you find stuff like that in San Diego. If you're into fancy, shmancy places - this is not for you. The decor is 'diner - 50's style'. If getting a dessert, I recommend the ""Bloomingdales"" - and split it with at least 5 friends.
Pros: Super bakery - cookies galore
Cons: Parking is terrible - it seems like that's the case with any business that's good. (sigh)
