Discover College Area

True to its name, the culture of the College Area in San Diego is heavily influenced by its proximity to San Diego State University. The dining options reflect the area's eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary. Local Italian eateries offer hearty and authentic dishes, and the Mexican cuisine has a fresh Baja slant. When you're looking for something beyond college student hot spots, there are more than enough upscale, modern American and French bistros to satisfy a mature palate. Start your day with a classic crepe, or pair your truffle fries with a glass of California burgundy for lunch.
