Adventures for L & L took us to University Heights for breakfast (at a brunch time) to a restaurant called Great Maple. The food was great and a huge!! We also looked at the amazing food other patrons had. ( little drooling happened too) Small parking lot, better off to find parking on the street. We were there at 11am and it was packed already. ***suggestion is make reservations on Open Table*** made it easier for us. She had “French Toast Logs” and it came with candied maple smoked bacon and syrup drizzled on top! It comes in 4 logs!! She said the bread was as fluffy as Angel cake. As for me, I had the normal 2 egg breakfast with home fries that had thyme and something else on it that was fantastic, bacon and some fruit. Plus we had Peach Bellinis! 🤪🤪 The have beignets made to order then they are brought to your table and prepared in front of you. Since we didn’t have any I can’t tell you how they were prepared but we saw them afterwards. Looked soooo tempting, but after you eat your breakfast or brunch or lunch you may not have room for the beignets!!!

About the restaurant
Masters Kitchen and Cocktail is located blocks from the beach in the heart of Oceanside, CA. An industrial space with classic history, Masters was once a well ­remembered drag car shop. The revamped restaurant keeps its authentic character, and offers a warm and inviting dining experience for a lovely escape from the sun and sand. A separate bar with communal seating serves traditional craft cocktails that sip and smell of the 1920s.

This was perhaps the 10th time we enjoyed a special occasion buffet at the Aragon ballroom. It is always a class act with great service, food and atmosphere.

About the restaurant
We are the lil sis of Queenstown Public House located in the Little Italy district of San Diego. Slightly smaller, but with the same basic ingredients.

A beautiful, comfortable, unique, fun setting. A friendly, smiling, courteous staff we hope you get to know. Guests enjoying the moment, sharing a laugh, whom we hope we get to know. Freshly made dishes; locally sourced, passionately created, many unique…and all delicious. A beer list changing daily, proudly from our award winning local craft SD brewers, and a wine list chosen with care from select vineyards and varietals.

With a kiwi inspired lineage, and the spirit, love and good nature from the land of the Maori, we hope you will join us. And if we are so fortunate, then, we hope you will have a little too much of a good time, have a few too many laughs, stay a while, and return again soon to see us.

My soup and sammie was great. My son's hamburger was good but on the smaller side. My husband's chicken pot pie was not good. It was soupy with very little chicken and vegetables. The beer on tap was flat but they were kind enough to substitute beer in cans.

The staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable, ensuring that every guest feels like a VIP.
