Six Things We’ll Miss About Little Italy

After six fun years at our offices in Little Italy, we are packing up and moving downtown. It was hard to choose, but here are six things we will miss about Little Italy.

1. Starbucks on India and Hawthorne: The staff is always such a delight and it was a two minute walk from our office!

2. Mona Lisa: A great place to stop and grab a bite to eat in their deli/market.

3. Influx: I will miss the Feta 2 the most!

4. Filippi’s: A San Diego standard for more than 50 years.

5. Burger Lounge: The best burgers!

6. The planes landing over our office: Ok, so we may not actually miss this, but some of us got so good at it, we could say “Oh that one came in a little high.” Not to mention the fact that I could see my sister’s plane landing and know it was time to get in the car to pick her up!

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

Snow Patrol, O.A.R., Mike Moran, Eric Hutchinson

  1. In addition to everything already mentioned….I will miss the Fed Ex plane. I finally was able to tune out the others but when that big dude came in between 4:30 and 5:00pm…I knew that the day was getting to an end and I still had lots to do before I could go home!! I will NOT miss the ceiling over my car that I always thought would fall down….and it did! But just once!! Ciao Little Italy!!!

  2. I miss that Grab’n’Go and Influx! Yes, lots of good times. Silly enough, I even miss having to ‘battle’ for free street parking with the co-workers and those emails we would send each other when the parking enforcement people were out and about.

  3. Agree to all you said and will miss the area greatly… you must not forget Puerto la Boca Grab and Go Subs and the Waterfront!! Bye, Bye Little Italy… Hello downtown
