Embark on your food-focused excursion, starting with hand-selected breakfast items from Café Topes, such as their decadent cinnamon roll or The Goods artisan donuts. 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 or Cicciotti’s.  From Italian delights to French crepes, Carlsbad has it all.

Enjoy award-winning California wines at Witch Creek Winery and get the chance to savor both locally crafted and specialty import chocolates at Chocolate Bar. To complement your foodie exploration, between each destination your guide offers interesting commentary about the lovely Victorian architecture and old-fashioned storefronts that fill downtown Carlsbad. Your ticket also gets you Carlsbad Food Tours’ Tasting Guide, which features local maps and exclusive discounts and coupons to give you special access to Carlsbad’s unique, artisan food scene.

You will learn about the historical significance of Carlsbad as you walk down Grand Ave to Carlsbad Blvd and enjoy the majesty of the Twin Inns and the Carlsbad Mineral Spa historic landmarks.
