A Modern Bistro & Bar on the La Jolla Dining Scene
Café la Rue translates to "the street," and in La Jolla all streets lead to La Valencia and her chic, casual bistro designed as a European brasserie perfect for people watching. The eatery's natural light and airy art deco-inspired ambiance is accented with original mural paintings that mirror the café's own sidewalk seating along Prospect Street. As La Jolla's best interactive venue, a chef driven rotating seasonal menu ranges from shared plates to elegant entrees built with sustainable ingredients from local providers. Evening specials are served al fresco under the twinkling lights of the village-front courtyard, where delectable flavors mingle with irresistible live music and balmy ocean breezes.
Enjoy live music on Patio Sol every Friday and Saturday from 4:00-7:00pm. Spend your summer evenings listening to local favorites, sipping craft cocktails and more.
