Experience Isabel’s Cantina, where cultures are thoughtfully integrated to create irresistible, modern taste sensations. Traditional Latin and Asian cuisines come together here, giving sustenance to a new kind of soul food.
Self-taught owner, cookbook author and chef Isabel Cruz brings her culinary Latin heritage front and center, adding to it the Asian influence she absorbed while growing up in Los Angeles. You can feel the passion that goes into each surprising new flavor combination, resulting in the bold and exotic – and surprisingly healthy- menu choices she proudly serves. By incorporating ingredients that range from spicy pork carnitas to tofu, our guests enjoy a vegetarian’s delight as well as a meat-lover’s paradise for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Isabel’s Cantina is among the top breakfast places in town (served until 2:30 p.m.), with good reason, boasting Banana-Blackberry Pancakes, Breakfast Tamales, Scrambles and French Toast made with our house-made Cinnamon Bread. Lunch and dinner options include Ahi Wontons, Chicken Lettuce Wraps and fire-roasted Chile Relleno with house-made salsas. Escape from the rowdy Pacific Beach bars and end up at Isabel’s for desserts such as Coconut Flan and sin-free (sorta) Flourless Chocolate Cake.
