Brunch At The Currant San Diego

As you might know, R & I decided to meet up with friends and celebrate the 4th of July in our favorite Californian city, San Diego. Let me tell you, it was the best idea ever! The 4th of July in San diego is really something special…

We stayed at the lovely The Sofia Hotel in downtown San Diego. Conveniently located a short walking distance from little Italy, the pier and other great locations, we barely used our car the whole time there. One of the many highlights of our stay at the Sofia Hotel, is the Currant American Brasserie. Located at the ground level of the hotel, it caught our attention as we were checking in.

After waking up rather late on our first night in SD and too tired to venture far from the hotel, we decided to have a “light” brunch at somewhere close. And nothing was closer than the Currant.

Did I mention the restaurant also has outdoor seating perfect for people watching and soaking in the sun?

Coffee was the first thing we ordered and the first thing to arrive, thankfully…

Hot and strong, it gave us the perfect kick to start off our meal.

We were craving something sweet in the morning, so we ordered the beignets, which come in fours with a side sauce. With so many to choose from, we relied on our waiter’s suggestion and got the verbena-lemon curd sauce.

The beignets arrived smelling so delicious and appetizing, I couldn’t resist taking a small nibble right away!

They were messy, but finger-licking good…

Dusted with what looks like a sprinkle of snow, they were hot, doughy and absolutely mouthwatering…

My favorite part was drizzling the beignet with that sour lemon curd sauce. The sauce was the perfect balance of sour and sweet. It was flawlessly made, and the perfect choice, as we like both sour and citrus flavors.

We sipped our coffee and continued our meal, as we made plans for a busy day in San Diego!

XoXo,

Tamara

      Oh you’re gonna love it! Make sure to check Pacific Beach, and if you have a sweet tooth you must have dessert at Extraordinary desserts. Also dinner at Ironside is a must! I hope you’ll have a blast in SD!

    You look gorgeous! I love that striped blouse. If you ever come to New Orleans, you have to try Cafe du Monde. Best. Beignets. Ever.

    I never ever had beignet before but OMG, you make it sounds so good. I love your outfit and that style of top was so similar to the ones I used to wear back when I was in high school. The 90s trend is really making a comeback, eh? LOL!

      Beignets are deadly, you should definitely try them! Yes, every 90’s trend seems to be making a comeback. I’m a 90’s kid so I’m so happy that they are.

      Have a fab day Shireen!
