It’s always tough to be the new kid on the block, but friendly North County loves local businesses to the core.

We’d like to say welcome to the neighborhood to a few new faces and some exciting expansions: Yelp introduces you to the peeps with new places up the coast!

The Privateer Coal Fire Pizza
1706 S PCH Oceanside
Local dudes and local foods, pizza pie and craft brews, but that’s not all: They’ve got a farm to table special chalked up on the board daily. Regional love and references abound, try the Brixton Pie (Tomato, Pepperoni, Parmesan, and Ricotta) all washed down with a cold Iron Fist brew.

Board and Brew
201 Oak Ave., Carlsbad
It’s all about the secret sauce! Sammie lovers and surfer’s rejoice, now you can get it at this newly minted second B&B location, up North in rad C-bad. True to its natural and laid back culture, but with more space and that new car smell than their Del Mar counterpart, this new coastal joint is the perfect place to post up sea side.

Native Foods Café
127 N El Camino Real, Encinitas
Need a fast healthy vegan made-from-scratch option? The entire menu is non-dairy and they’ve also got an extensive gluten free menu. Try the Baja Tacos or Vegan Nachos. Yelp reviews also report the dessert options are to die for: Apple pie, brownies, peanut butter parfait-you name it! Tastes like you’re bad, but you’re being oh so good.

Culture Brewing Co.
111 S Cedros Ave., Solana Beach
Watch out Solana Beach, the nightlife is coming and you can’t stop it! Culture Brewing has made its new home near The Belly Up in the design district of South Cedros. The brews are made in house daily and tapped for your enjoyment. Rotating selections will grace your palate, so pull up a stool and become a regular!  

Bbar Superfood Vitality Bar
2683 Via De La Valle, Del Mar

Drink your veggies all in one fabulous swoop, the much-anticipated juice and raw food bar is open and blending up your daily requirements. But no need to live on a liquid diet alone, try a Beaming Protein Bite or the daily raw soup. From Acai to salads to cold pressed juice, each menu selection is a toast to your health. Cheers!
