Expedia features Carlsbad Food Tours – A Culinary Walking Tour

Culinary Walking Tour
Experience the historic city of Carlsbad through a  A culinary walking tour, indulging in a light meal’s worth of tasty snacks and sips from various restaurants and shops in Carlsbad Village. Along the way, listen as your food-loving guide shares insider insight into the area’s culinary scene.
Arrive in charming Carlsbad Village and meet your tour guide. With the group size limited to just 12 people, you can be sure of having their undivided attention as you explore this seaside neighborhood’s palm tree-lined lanes.
Embark on your food-focused excursion, starting with hand-selected breakfast items from Café Topes, such as their decadent cinnamon roll. From there, continue to a series of locally owned Italian restaurants and cafes, where you can savor Old World dishes including generations-old recipes from Gregorio’s Italian Restaurant, southern Italian bites at Caldo Pomodoro, and Mediterranean specialties.  A culinary walking tour is a great way to taste the best of Carlsbad.

Stroll through Carlsbad Village to discover specialty shops and charming restaurants featuring Californian, Italian, and Mexican cuisine. Bask in the warm sunlight and taste your way through town, soaking up the coastal atmosphere as a professional guide provides insight into Carlsbad’s history.
Meet up with your tour guide at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue near the fountain, and then head out to explore the locally owned boutiques and Victorian architecture that make Carlsbad Village the heart and soul of Carlsbad, California. Discover the area’s rich history as your guide takes you off the beaten path to share a local’s perspective of this coastal community.
As you traipse between old-fashioned storefronts and beloved eateries, sample some of Carlsbad’s finest culinary offerings and gourmet treats. Follow the smell of garlic toast to Caldo Pomodoro, taste peppery cold-pressed olive oils at Humble, and check out imported Italian goodies at Vigilucci’s Gourmet Market. At Witch Creek Winery, swirl a glass of California wine, and at Gregorio’s Italian, sample classic bites like oven-fresh pizza or pasta. It wouldn’t be a food tour in SoCal without some Mexican fare—from Señor Grubby’s in this case—and your outing wraps up on a sweet note at Sub Zero Ice Cream and Carlsbad Chocolate Bar.
