There is no place on earth quite like the Cliffhanger Cafe, located at the Torrey Pines Gliderport in La Jolla. While having lunch you’ll be able to watch colorful gliders flying effortlessly in the sunny San Diego skies above you. And if you are a tiny bit adventurous, for a mere ($150) you too can enjoy an adventure of a lifetime by taking a tandem glider ride with a seasoned professional above the cliffs of romantic La Jolla Shores. Be here at noon, when the wind is blowing gently through your hair on a warm, sunny San Diego day. Life doesn’t get any better than this.
Here too is Chef Miguel Fernandez, clad in his white chef’s uniform turning out one delicious made-to-order sandwich after another. In fact, each sandwich is so good that the café was proclaimed “Best sandwich with a view” by San Diego Magazine.
But don’t take anyone else’s word for it, come try one of their mouthwatering sandwiches yourself. With names like Venetian Wind, Tandem and La Jollan and filled with mouthwatering ingredients like provolone cheese, sun-dried tomatos, avocado, jicama, onion, chipotle ranch dressing, sliced turkey and fresh lettuce, you’ll surely agree that this is one chef that knows how to prepare a great sandwich.
Don’t forget to use our coupon for one free soda with the purchase of any sandwich!
Dress casually, bring a jacket if there is a cool breeze, bring your camera and you’ll definitely have a great time.
Depending on conditions, you may also see hang glider, remote control, or even sailplane activities!
