Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe in San Diego
After spending the morning exploring the Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego, my kids had worked up a huge appetite. A lunch spot that I have been wanting to try for months, Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe, was just a short drive from the National Park. Once all our exploring was done, we headed over to the cafe to get some tasty sandwiches for lunch. I had heard that all of the bread and pastries were made fresh onsite daily, and I was thrilled to find out that it was true.
When we walked into the restaurant, the kids got to see a real working bakery in action through all of the large glass windows. They got to see the big machinery, ovens, and racks of freshly made pastries.
As we made our way toward the counter to place our order, we were tempted by all the delicious desserts. My taste buds were begging me to order one of their popular cinnamon rolls, and how could I ever let my tastebuds down?
There were so many choices when it came to ordering a sandwich. Not only do customers get to select the type of sandwich, but also the type of bread. My older son is a big fan of Italian sandwiches, and he couldn’t resist ordering the Italian Salami sandwich on a french baguette. He squealed with delight when he noticed that the sandwich came piled high with olive infused pepperoncini peppers when it was delivered to our table, and he devoured every bite of the fresh sandwich.
Since my daughter and I have similar tastes, and we always enjoy sharing a meal together, we shared the Turkey Cobb sandwich on sourdough bread. The massive sandwich came with a large amount of turkey, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, and crumbled gorgonzola. It was one of the best sandwiches that I have ever had, and mostly because of the incredible freshness of the bread.
The restaurant lived up to the hype and exceeded my expectations. Once we were done having lunch, we went back inside of the restaurant to purchase some fresh bread to bring home. It is my new favorite place to go for lunch while in the Point Lomas area of San Diego. I guarantee that you’ll fall in love with this restaurant just as much as we did.
