Thomas and I enjoyed a beautiful Saturday strolling through Old Town San Diego experiencing the culture and vibrant atmosphere. I had been to Old Town a couple of years ago to dine out friends but I had never really been through the historic part of the area so it was so fun to see a new side of it. I couldn’t believe I had been missing out for so long! The architecture is so gorgeous and I really just love old buildings that have so much history and character! I also admired some of the gorgeous pottery that I have pictured above. The colors and shapes of them are so unique and vibrant. I also really enjoyed seeing the hand painted tiles that are featured on some of the staircases. It’s the little details that really give Old Town its beauty.

While Old Town doesn’t have an abundance of vegan-friendly restaurants, you can find a few vegan options at Casa De Reyes. I haven’t eaten there so I can’t personally recommend it, but it is a good choice if you are in the area! What I would recommend is exploring Old Town and then heading over to Ranchos Cocina in North Park. They have so many vegan and gluten-free options! The owner of the restaurant started Ranchos with the goal of serving omnivores and herbivores alike which is what makes it so awesome! My personal favorites there include “El Healthy” burrito (sub the wheat tortilla with a side of corn tortillas to make it gluten-free) and also the trio of vegan enchiladas. Ranchos Cocina is so delicious and worth the 10-minute drive!
