Claire's on Cedros Restaurant Review

: Claire Allison, baker and creator of the bread recipe that became Milton's Multigrain Bread, opened her dream café, set in a cottage-style, LEED-certified green building of stone and wood with lovely fresh herbs growing about the property. Dogs are welcome, families feel right at home, and locals like having this haunt in the quaint Solana Beach town. Pop in for a warm scone or bear claw and cup of organic coffee, or grab a seat on the patio and try the oven-roasted asparagus omelet with goat cheese and tomatoes or a stack of tasty Clairecakes from her homemade pancake recipe. Strawberry-stuffed french toast means brioche stuffed with house-made ricotta, with fresh strawberries and dabs of whipped strawberry butter. Mediterranean-spiced chicken kebabs mingle nicely with a Lebanese salad of cucumber, tomato, onion, red bell pepper, mint and cilantro with feta and cured olives. While the chicken salad sandwich was a tad dry, the Meyer's Ranch Angus burger is juicy and hearty. We hope with time the service improves, as the ambience is inviting and cozy, reflecting chef Allison’s determination to create a neighborhood healthy eatery that's eco-conscious and welcoming to all.
