December 8th is the Grand Opening of our very first San Diego location, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’ll be serving the La Jolla community with our signature farm-to-table sandwiches and salads, affordable catering options,  and curated wines and local craft beers (from Bitter Brothers, Modern Times, and Karl Strauss).

La Jolla Interior

Stop by and grab a seat in our comfy dining room or airy, plant-filled patio. Bring the whole family to enjoy our kids menu, chalkboard wall, and foosball table! Don’t forget, we also have catering options perfect for everything from office meetings to picnics to cocktail parties.

La Jolla Patio

Exclusively at this location and for a limited time only, we have partnered with Chef Christine Rivera (winner of Eater’s 2016 Young Guns award) of Galaxy Taco to create a special collaboration sandwich for charity, called the Torta de Lomo. It features traditional braised pork, escabeche ensalada, Cotija cheese, black bean spread, avocado, and chipotle aioli on panini-pressed soft roll for $11.95. All proceeds from sales of the sandwich during its month-long run from December 8th to January 8th will benefit ECOLIFE Conservation, a local nonprofit devoted to championing techniques like Aquaponics (which uses 90% less water and land compared to traditional farming) and other simple sustainable solutions for the problems associated with large scale farming practices.

“Good food ends with good talk.”

– Geoffrey Neighbor

The best meals involve lively conversation, and that’s one of our favorite things about being in the restaurant business! Our connection with our guests is the engine that drives us.

Whether you have questions about our ingredients or about planning a catering, we want to help you! If you’d like to share your sandwich requests or give a shout-out to your favorite Mendo Team Member, we want to be inspired by you! And if we messed up, we want to hear about it so we can push ourselves to do better next time.
