Janet’s Café
Start your day with a down-home breakfast from Janet’s Café. This unassuming but cozy cafe is conveniently next door to the Mast Park Disc Golf Course and just 2 miles from Weston.

If you’re looking for a new happy hour spot, stop by Downtown Café in El Cajon for a Strawberry Long Island, Blue Hawaiian and other specialty drinks. Enjoy happy hour prices 2-6 p.m. daily.

The Oaks Bar & Grill
After playing a round of golf at Carlton Oaks Country Club, visit the clubhouse grill. Enjoy 13 beers on tap, a bleu cheese bacon burger and many other options as you hang out under the terrace overlooking the course’s greens.

Riverwalk Grill
In Santee Town Center next door to the community parks’ soccer and football fields, try out San Diego’s best Philly cheesesteak. This family-owned restaurant grills their buns on garlic oil to give it a more garlic bread style taste that pairs well with the variety of IPAs they have on hand.

Farmer’s Table
Dine al fresco in this nearby farm-to-table concept in La Mesa. Sip on blackberry basil lemonade with moonshine or a pit barrel-aged Manhattan. For meat lovers, you can go very bold with your cocktail; the Barnyard Bloody Mary includes bacon and an entire rotisserie chicken! And those are technically just the drinks – for your main entrée, dine on oxtail ravioli, pork belly pizza or other eclectic choices.
