The Big Kitchen Restaurant is a place where the body is nourished along with the soul. The interaction that takes place at the counter and booths has brought about an incredible community. As a community we have shared many profound human experiences; an excellent sense of humor, art, music, theater and friendship all have contributed to this creation. Oh yes, our food is excellent, too.
Most of our vegetables are fresh, the spinach is frozen… I refuse to wash all that spinach. We bake our own muffins and coffeecake. We honey bake our own hams and fresh roasts our own turkey breasts. The food is real and that is why it tastes so good. Our staff cares about its freshness, as well as the way it looks and tastes. Our prices reflect the quality, care and time involved in presenting to you the “best breakfast in town” (Eye on San Diego) in a “quintessential community cafe (San Diego Magazine) in a “radically chic atmosphere (Tuned In). We also have become famous for our “Kulture in the Kitchen” series which features theater, music, poetry and art.
