I am constantly going back and forth from San Marcos to Orange County, when I find a good lunch spot I usually start to crave it… all the time.
My current go to spots are:
Active Culture in San Clemente
I have been getting Active once a week for around two months now because it was close to an internship that I had in San Clemente. You could say I am obsessed. Active is great because they offer so many healthy options and have a wide variety of bowls, breakfasts, and specialty items. Annnddd…they offer half off froyo every Friday after 3pm!
SC Rice Bowl: Organic brown rice, prosciutto, goat’s milk cheese, apples, dates, basil, lemon vinaigrette
Perks Coffee House in San Marcos
I have known about Perks since I started school in San Marcos, but this semester it has become one of my new study spots. My friends and I have a few long breaks between classes and we come to Perks religiously. They have a great atmosphere for studying and getting your to do list done! They also offer many delicious breakfast/lunch options.
My Food Order:
Rise-N-Shine Breakfast Sandwich: eggs, your choice of meat, cheese, on a croissant or a bagel
Oatmeal and a banana nut muffin
My Drink Order:
Cafe Viennese: espresso, steamed almond milk, crafted honey and cinnamon
If you haven’t been to either of these two place I highly recommend giving them a try!!
