Flower Child, Del Mar, CA

Flower Child Restaurant Review

: Flower Child may be a chain, but it's blooming with original flair. It's a mix of laid-back bohemian and hipster élan. The healthy eats menu features organic, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan dishes with something for everyone. For a nice start to the day, order up the avocado toast with a poached egg, black sesame and Parmesan or the vegan hash where smoked tofu mingles with portobello mushrooms, organic potato, charred onion, avocado hummus, cilantro and fresh turmeric. Lunch means wraps, salads and bowls stuffed with your favorite ingredients. You can also mix ‘n’ match proteins and grains --- we recommend the quinoa with sweet corn and Greek yogurt, the grilled asparagus with ancient grains and ginger miso, and the Indian spiced cauliflower. Seasonal lemonades and rotating kombuchas refresh the palate. The umbrella-dotted patio out back is dog-friendly and a nice spot for a leisurely affordable lunch that's good for the body and soul. Expect organic wines and beer, too.
