HOPE 46 Classic American Cuisine photo

HOPE 46 Classic American Cuisine

Located off of the Conservatory of North Park San Diego's Lafayette Hotel, HOPE 46 Classic American Cuisine serves up unpretentious, classic American cuisine in a relaxed setting. The restaurant's design is all about taking you back in time to an era of smooth jazz and glamor, a sentiment driven home by the soft colors, vintage reclaimed wood, antique glass window panes and unique lighting found throughout. The relaxed and open setting is the perfect space to gather daily for breakfast, brunch (or both, after all you're on vacation) or a mid-day custom cocktail overlooking the historic Weissmuller Pool. Loved by locals and guests alike, HOPE 46 honors the heart of American cooking and eating - shared platters of mouthwatering dishes passed across the table between friends and family. After all, isn't that what food is all about?
