Healthy Dining in San Diego

It’s no secret that Californians take their health seriously, and San Diegans are no exception. Check out our selection of places throughout this city where the health-conscious fill up on delicious, farm-fresh, California-grown fare.

Northside Shack

Point Loma’s Northside Shack is where you can get your fill of the custom blends dreamt up by Chef Pamela Olvera. Try the Harvest Green, with spirulina, kale, collards, celery, and apples — or for something sweeter, spring for a PB&J smoothie. We also recommend the bowls, including açai, oatmeal, and pitaya bases.

Tender Greens

Tender Greens has deservedly become one of SoCal’s best-known health-food chains. The Point Loma location prepares platters of proteins, such as chicken, steak, and seared tuna, and pairs them with greens, like kale and Romaine hearts. You can also choose from a range of sides, including rice and mashed potatoes. If you’d rather trust the experts, the menu features pre-made salads and sandwiches, including tuna-Niçoise and chipotle-barbecue-chicken options.

Veggilish offers a menu that is 100% vegan-friendly and gluten-free. Healthy protein-packed bases combine veggies like carrots and Brussels sprouts, proteins like sautéed tofu, and dressings like chile-garlic and cilantro serrano. You can wash down your combo of choice with Perrier, kombucha, or even coconut water.

Urbane Café

Urbane Café does health food with a Mediterranean twist. Signature items run from the pesto and sun-dried tomato chicken and Bella Portobello sandwiches — made on house-baked focaccia — to a Cobb salad and cheese pizza for younger guests.

5375 Napa St, San Diego, CA 92110 (4.3 miles from the hotel)


Pachamama is your one-stop shop for organic cuisine inspired by Central and South America — including the cuisines of Peru, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, and Uruguay. Fill up on banana-coconut pancakes, bean-and-quinoa cakes, tuna ceviche, and the gluten-free Tango Bowl, complete with barbecue tahini and roasted sweet potatoes.
