Open only three years, Claire & Terrie have created a place where people go to share a meal with family and feel at home. The environmentally friendly, LEED Platinum design created by Maura Johnson and their wonderful staff of servers, baristas, and hostesses makes for a well rounded experience that keeps locals coming back and tourists planning their vacation around a visit. Claire Allison, the cook and magical baker behind it all, creates a diverse, delicious menu using primarily local and organic produce when she can find it. Open for breakfast, lunch, and now summertime dinners, this place is a great restaurant to stop in at whenever you are in North County or riding the coaster (Solana Beach Station). Homemade caramel lattes and butterscotch puddings are to die for as are the locals favorite – Clairecakes, made in a variety of ways from gluten-free to multigrain, cinnamon, and lemon ricotta.
