Deniz Turkmen 5/5

They serve brunch not just on weekends but on Fridays too! We took a day off on Friday to enjoy La Jolla with less crowd. Came across this place. They have outside seating with nice view. Nice and friendly staff. Wife got Philly cheese steak, and I got a breakfast sandwich in a soft pretzel bun. They both tasted delicious. Considering how expensive the other restaurants are in the area this is the best bang for the buck, and it is plant based!

Jes The Foodie 5/5

Came by El Avocado for their Monday night dinner and was blown away with the menu and care the staff put into the dinner! There were nice photo opportunities and amazingly yummy food!

Parking can be a bit rough around the area at peak times but it’s well worth it once you arrive for food!

I’m looking forward to coming back and trying more of the menu!

Antonio Lacosta 5/5

El Avocado is simply great. Tasty food, outstanding customer service, and great location. On top of all that, everything is vegan which is the cherry on the cake.

We went there for a lunch and we really enjoyed our experience. I would highly recommend El Avocado & I will definitely be back when I’m in San Diego again.

Mason Melito 5/5

Wow! Such an incredible vegan place! It was so hard to make a choice on what to order because all of the food looked so so good…and it was! Philly Cheesesteak and Breakfast Wrap were a really big hit…and the pastries look absolutely mouthwatering. So awesome.

Paul “Paulie G” Getto 5/5

Amazing! They are doing business the way it should be done. A La Jolla mainstay! The Service is wonderful- very very friendly servers and the food is delectable. Try the cheesesteak- best I have had in California so far (and vegan for my lactose intolerant partner)!!! The coffee/espresso and desserts look fabulous and I will try next time! Very pretty and cozy setting and there was even a live performer playing the bongos outside. It is CLEAN- even the bathroom was spotless. Prices are on the higher side but worth it for the service and setting. TRY IT!!! Very Instagram worthy heheh ;)
