Craft & Commerce
Join us nightly for the CFC Pop-Up menu. Our shameless tribute to fast food features a curated selection of items representing the golden age of guilty pleasure.

We hope you enjoy savoring this menu as much as we enjoyed creating it.

What a fantastic find! I’m in love with the curated drinks, the high class take on fast food and the shakes. I can’t pick a favorite between the dreamy, not to be missed biscuits, the mac n’ cheese or the milkshake with Cap’n Crunch that didn’t scratch my mouth, it was so smooth. This place is number one on my San Diego list from now on.
Fun tiki brunch. Excellent customer service! Tiki drinks were top notch.
GREAT SERVICE, FOOD, AND DRINKS!
Craft and Commerce’s new menu is tasty, creative, and fun. We loved their previous menu but this one fits well with the times. It was a cool experience to order some “fast food” favorites made with quality ingredients and enjoy it in a dine in (outside) setting. I felt safe and comfortable with the new covid guideline seating and enjoyed a little bit of normalcy during these times. Rachel is amazing and attentive and we enjoyed our mid day meal/dinner. Also, it’s probably worth mentioning that the vegetarian burger exceeded my veggie friend’s expectations. She said it was top 3 that she’s ever had and made sure to save half of it for later because she knew she would crave it. You can order it vegetarian or vegan too, so even though the menu has plenty of fried, meat forward goodness, go ahead and bring your probably much healthier vegetarian/ vegan friends and there will be something for them as well :).
AWESOMELY AWESOME! This was our first visit and it was great, Can't wait to go back!
The new menu is not as interesting and good. Please bring the old menu back
Honestly I was not prepared for the pop up menu and did not like any of the choices. Additionally we were sat pretty close to another table and the sun was straight on us with no canopy coverage. The staff was really pleasant and understood why we left without ordering.
The food was AMAZING! A twist on everyone’s childhood favorites. The drinks were so good, also. Definitely will be coming back. I recommend this spot to anyone who is a fat kid at heart!!
Usin open table made reservations fast and easy. We were seating right away, and the service was really good. Definitely enjoyed the food, ambiance, and drinks, and we will absolutely be coming back
Loved this place. Great design, excellent service, fantastic cocktails, and thoughtful food. Wanted to come back during our visit in SD, but COVID hours prevented it. Craft & Commerce will remain one of our favorite places in SD and snagged a spot in our travel hall of fame.
The food was horrible. McDonald’s menu is not what I want
Great new re-vamped menu with a fun take on things, along with keeping some CC classics. Amazing cocktails, as usual, that aren't overpriced. Loved this place for years!
Wonderful experience per usual. The consortium group always deliver.
fast-food inspired pop up at C&C was awesome. Love the decor and ambiance. Drinks were delicious and food was so good. Great location and within walking distance of bars in Little Italy and downtown. Will be coming here again!
Service was amazing! From the hostess to the service, we even left on a fantastic note
The ambiance and music was chill. However the food and cocktail menu’s were definitely lacking. They almost did not match the overall restaurant. Not dieing to return. There are better options in Little Italy!
Awesome. Great food. Great drink.
All good! No negative comments to add. Staff was friendly and approachable.
Craft & Commerce is such a unique and fun concept. Their food and drink menu was very different and everything we tried absolutely delicious. It was a beautiful evening to enjoy the patio after the rain and the server was very knowledgeable and on top of things on a fairly busy Thursday.
Server Lauren was outstanding and made the evening fun. Thanks
Great food and a wonderful atmosphere! The food was outstanding!
I was horrified by the decor. Taxidermed mountain Lions, deer and other animals all over their walls. I ordered their crispy brussel sprouts and had to send them back. The kimchi sauce on it smelled like a carcass on the side of the road. I’ve never had kimchi smell that way anywhere else. My buddy’s burger was bland. The service was ok. The waitress took off the sprouts from my check even after I said it was ok for her to charge me. Other than that I will
definitely not be going back.
Valentines Day meal Food was great
The menu was strange. No real entrees just all these random dishes that did seem to make sense. The menu was different on line or I never would have gone there to begin with. And if stuffed animal heads bother you, certainly don’t go.
great food and fun atmosphere. service was awful. our waitress was drunk and forgot our order and never came and got our payment- ended up tabbing out with the bar.
The carne asada Benedict steak was almost raw. Our server did not come by the table between a good runner dropping off the plates and is finishing the meal(aside from the undercooked meat$.
Disappointed because the corn bread was no longer available
The restaurant is a cool looking place and we liked the table top fire. We had previewed the menu online and were disppointed to find out that they had changed the menu a couple of months ago and that the items that had caught our eye were no longer available. The server was pleasant enough, but seemed kind of fake. Two of our party ordered the hamburger, both medium. Both of the burgers came out VERY rare, not even medium rare. To her credit, the waitress handled the situation very well and corrected the mistake (this was the one time she seemed sincere). Also, our bill was adequately discounted for the inconvenience (appreciated). What stuck us as strange was the manager never came by after this mistake. He had come by our table prior to our food arriving, but not afterward. I have been a restaurant manager myself and I found that surprising.
Food was delicious. Drinks were really good too. Mediocre service.
The staff were awesome. They helped me surprise my boyfriend for his birthday and they killed it! Thank you!
Good drinks, food was ok.
Our table wasn't even close to ready at the time of our reservation. So they showed us to the tiki bar so we could order overpriced drinks before being seated. I personally ordered the chicken fried steak which the server said was great. It wasn't great...there was hardly any steak in it so it was mostly just coating and the steak that was there was rubbery. Good beer list though.
Love the atmosphere and the drinks! They menu since the last time we were in and it’s very confusing to navigate. the wait staff was very accommodating to help navigate the menu. I miss the beef carpaccio with toast and egg and bone marrow. Please bring it back!
Great food. Only complaint is that our table was not ready at the time of our reservation.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere! Perfect date night -- will definitely be back!!
This establishment has comfort food dialed in so well with a twist! Large portions and fun atmosphere. The flavors were out of this world.
Food was ok, wasn’t really too impressed
It was pretty cold because the window/door was open even though blankets were provided it was still hard to stay warm and eat at the same time
What a great night out with friends with decadent food & exceptional service with Lauren! She was amazing, so cute & diligent providing the best personalized service for our girls night out. She recommended great dishes, the Brussels sprouts & burger were to die for!!! Oh & the lava cake is a must as well. Definitely coming back to see her.
