One of the best if not the best (my favorite) sandwich shop and bakery in all of San Diego county. Located in the heart of La Jolla Village, Girard Gourmet has such a wide variety of sandwiches, meals and treats to eat in or to go. Honestly, the best chicken salad I have had on the west coast. Friendly workers and ownership, always a delight having lunch there or to go and supporting small business!
So good, went there twice while visiting the area. Everything we had was good. Kids loved the spaghetti in meat sauce. Quiches are all exceptionally good, tried all but one (ask about the cowboy quiche). Expect a creamier consistency. Pot pie and shepherds pie were hits with adults and kids. Eggplant was OK. Broccoli turkey also OK. Cookies and pastries were quite good. Fruit tart was OK. Recommend getting there at least by 5 because hours don't match online (we were told they closed at 5:30). Nice area to sit out front if you can snag a table.
Stopped in for a snack. The place was adorable and so much variety. Seemed like a family run place or at least they treated each other that way. The line was cramped and very long due to the design of the store but somehow they manage to keep the line moving really well weaving in and out of each other finding ways to help customers, organized chaos so to speak. I got a apple streusel and it was amazing. my daughter got a cranberry muffin and her and I both tried it and it didn't have much flavor but the texture and moisture were good. I would go back but maybe not the cranberry muffin. Sorry Girard
It closes at 6PM most days as a heads up, not 8PM as is listed on Google. I got one of the ?hot specialty plates?, but my food had to be reheated in the microwave and didn?t taste good at all?certainly not worth the $13 it cost. I?m not sure how this place has 4.6 stars, but their breakfast and pastry options might be better than the evening lunch/dinner menu. I did give two stars because the staff was courteous and friendly, and offered us a free pastry since it was about closing time.
I came here and got a cookie. Little did I know they put three more cookies in my bag! I didn't find out till I got home. So kind of them and I was able to share with my friends. Will definitely come again. Great little place with kind people! Thanks so much! :D
We were there earlier today. The gentleman behind the counter was so wonderful and amazing! He let my daughter and I try a pig cookie it was delicious. She bought strawberry rhubarb pie and I purchased corn beef and cabbage soup. I cannot wait to return and Customer Service was fabulous! Thank you - cannot wait to return!
Had coffee and a cookie at Girard Gourmet 2/6/22. Delicious sugar cookie with beautiful icing. Perfect ratio of icing to cookie.
