Review of Café 21

802 5th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101

Overall Rating


Great tapas-style restaurant with gluten free options as well as modifications to accommodate gluten free diets. The server was very helpful and knowledgeable about possible instances of gluten. My wife and I shared the Mediterranean fried rice and the short rib omelette. Our server helped us out by telling us that they couldn’t confirm whether the blue cheese on the omelette was gluten free, and substituted for feta. Our friend had the overnight oats and the veggie power bowl. The food was all great and didn’t make anybody sick! The drinks were unique as well. Not your typical brunch, good for foodies.
