Wandering the streets of the restored Gaslamp Quarter is a favorite activity among visitors to San Diego. Exploring the 16-block Victorian Historic District with its clubs, restaurants, shops, buskers, and entertainers can be hungry work, and it can be expensive. However, just around the corner from the historic U.S. Grant Hotel, C Street contains a hidden gem.
Located on the property of the Aston Ka’anapali Villas, Castaway Cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and includes a special keiki (children’s) menu for your little menehunes. While dining on macadamia nut, pineapple, and banana pancakes for breakfast, a barbecued pork sandwich for lunch, or shrimp and mango curry for dinner, you’ll see why this is one of the locals’ favorite secret spots.
