Description: La Jolla, California, is paradise on earth. It is "a bit of seacoast of many moods and manners," according to a 1923 article in the San Diego Union. It was largely bypassed by developers until the mid-twentieth century. For many long-time residents, it still is a folksy little community despite its current population of thirty thousand. Spend a few days at the Cottage, and you will feel the neighborliness among staff, regular customers, and friends from nearby businesses along Fay Avenue.
The bungalow was moved to its present location on historic Fay Avenue around 1914. It has housed a number of businesses before becoming the Cottage restaurant, and Laura and John Wolfe have worked hard to keep its original bungalow ideals: cozy and comfortable, simple yet stylish. "It reflects the lifestyle here," John says. "We like the outdoors; we are upbeat and ocean-oriented; we eat healthy ... although 'health food' has all kinds of other connotations. What we serve is healthy, but it is not health food" Browsing the stories and photos of Southern California Cooking from the Cottage will take you to the paradise that is La Jolla, and with over 150 recipes you will taste the healthy eating of the best of Southern California.
