Getting sconed at Rebecca's
(click on image to enlarge)
Posted especially for KT, who used to live in San Diego and misses this coffee house in South Park.
Rebecca's is known for its scones, which were unfortunately sold out on my first visit.
I saw that they offer a coconut frappuccino, so I'll be back...
This is right next to Rebecca's--I'm not sure if it's part of it, but I was enamoured with the Loteria images covering the windows.
South Park is an older, small neighborhood in San Diego that epitomizes the idea of "community".
Every year around Dia de los Muertos (the day after Halloween), neighbors set up shrines that are visible on a walking tour, along with explanations of their importance.
The community rallies together to better the area, including derailing a planned freeway expansion that would have gobbled up their church--a cute, almost folk art Catholic structure painted in bright colors.
The old homes are being refurbished, and it's really getting to be a lovely place to hang out.
Other fun business in the community include The Grove (yarn shop),
The Whistle Stop (a bar that has a monthly knitting meet-up),
and The Grape Street dog park, where I took Duke for a little photo opp
