Breakfast fans, it doesn't get much better than this. Fresh, homemade pastries and breakfast breads, salmon smoked right in the restaurant kitchen, authentic New England maple syrup, fresh-made smoothies and juice drinks... NINE-TEN, celebrating its 10th year as one of San Diego's first (and finest) farm-to-table restaurants, has a killer breakfast and brunch spread. And when you book the "San Diego Bed and Breakfast" package at the Grand Colonial Hotel La Jolla, you'll get breakfast for two included with your room. (Rates from $229 based on availability.)
So you're not the breakfast type? Sleep in (and savor those ocean views) because you can get an extra night on the house. The Grande Colonial Hotel La Jolla is letting you stay three nights but pay for only two with a special package.
Located only a short distance away from beautiful Torrey Pines State Park, The Grande Colonial also has its share of picture-perfect California coast nearby, with Blacks Beach, Windansea Beach, and La Jolla Cove all within close range of the hotel.
