"We're called Little Lion because my family used to own a restaurant in San Diego called Belgian Lion, just on the other side of the beach. So all our family heirlooms and things from that restaurant are strewn about the shop. We grew up there. Literally, as we got out of school, we'd go to work at the family restaurant, so we always dreamed of one day doing our own thing." These three sisters, Anne-Marie, Jacqueline, and Dominique Coulon, told us about opening @little_lion_cafe and their ultimate day in San Diego. Visit the link in our bio to see what they had to say. #localsknowsandiego
Little Lion Cafe in Ocean Beach, San Diego: This sweet (and pretty tiny) café is a very cute spot to enjoy a good brunch on a sunny San Diego morning. It's located in a more quiet part of Ocean Beach, a weird yet friendly SD neighborhood where homeless beach bums, artists, hippies and other types of locals all coexist in a fairly quiet and respectful way.
In other words, if you visit Ocean Beach, I recommend you start with a good brunch at Little Lions. From there you can go walk along Sunset Cliffs and then make your way back passed Little Lion towards downtown OB. Walk down Newport Ave from Sunset Cliffs Blvd towards the beach for some shopping (make a small detour from Bacon street down Niagara Ave to stop at The Nest Coffee and Tea for a warm beverage or some shopping in the adjacent boutique http://bit.ly/2FgDJup)
Working to recoup from last night's late flight (which involved full speed RUNNING through the airport) and I sure wouldn't mind having more of these delicious waffles. Delivery to Louisiana, @little_lion_cafe? 🤞🏼 #ppsips#littlelioncafe
One of my favorite clean meals from the @little_lion_cafe !!! Eating clean doesn’t have to be boring... and sometimes mixing things you wouldn’t normally combine is extra delightful for the palette! Recreate this dish of a warm medley of black beans and quinoa with sautéed red bell peppers, purple & sweet potatoes and beets. Sprinkled with shaved cauliflower (that is not cheese 😜) and avocado slices!! #powermeals#cleanmeals#superfoodbowl#littlelioncafe
After almost 3 weeks of holidays, travel, festivities, lazy mornings and being TOTALLY out of my routine, I’m pumped to be back in the gym!! ! It’s not what you do over a period of time that will “make” or “break” your health, it’s what you do the majority of days and weeks and months out of the year! I want to thank everyone for the birthday love yesterday 🙏🙏🙏 I’m kicking off 37 by getting back in the gym and back to my favorite feel good healthy habits! Happy Birthday to me! Swipe to see the celebrations!
Thank you #littlelioncafe#fishmongersmarket#gelatoveracafe for the amazing meals today shared with my hubs❤️ @little_lion_cafe @fishmongersmarket
When your customer (and friend) takes such an amazing picture and you realize how lucky we are that Little Lion calls this place home. Thanks @seldomlystill See you all tomorrow for either breakfast lunch or dinner!
Not going to lie - the holidays pretty much sucked for us with at least 3 bouts of the flu. Preschool has not been kind to little Ruby. We went 2.5 years with no fever and just mild colds so I shouldn’t complain. Playing hooky today and starting 2018 off with a killer breakfast from Little Lion Cafe. Bring on the new year! @little_lion_cafe #littlelioncafe#obrubyrose#1502
When it comes to apps and a table spread, no one does it like @little_lion_cafe in OB. Thank you for bringing our holiday table to life — #Thanksgiving , we’re ready for you and officially all prepped before the clock strikes midnight!!! What’s YOUR favorite side dish or appetizer!? TIP: add fresh greenery to your tablescape! It smells fresh and inviting and adds a pop of color while bringing peace and nature inside 💗🌿 #FIT4MOM#LittleLionCafe
