Liberty Station Marketplace, Point Loma, San Diego California

Description

Liberty Station Marketplace is a small development of stores and restaurants. Here you will find beautifully restored historical buildings that were part of the former Navy Training Center. Orangey-pink Spanish Revival architecture, open grassy areas, and a fountain make this a pretty spot to stroll after grabbing a meal at one of the cafes. Kids will enjoy running free and "tight-rope walking" around the fountain's edge. 
An upscale area, Liberty Station Marketplace is filled with happy, well-dressed people doing their weekly shopping for organic, gourmet, yet affordable groceries at Trader Joe's or spending a night out at a cafe. Tender Greens is a great choice for a meal out. The acoustics are loud inside but the food is delicious, organic, and fresh, and the prices are right. You pay up front and take your tray to your table, so there's no waiting around for waiters. Try the flank steak with mashed potatoes.
Other great choices for a meal are Panera Bread, which has delicious sandwiches, soups, and salads, where you also pay up front. There's Sammy's Wood-Fired Pizza, Starbucks, Five Guys (delicious, non-greasy fast-food burgers) and various other ethnic cafes such as Ikiru Japanese.
Located in one of my favorite areas of San Diego, Point Loma, where you find a backdrop of colorful hills covered in a variety of trees, and the harbor and ocean permeating everything, this development is pleasing!
