Sunny Side Kitchen has been a local favorite in North San Diego County since it opened in 2015. Instead of your typical breakfast menu filled with pancakes and scrambled eggs, Sunny Side Kitchen customers start their day with hot sandwiches, soups and salads made with love. and fresh, local ingredients. Recently, they invited members of the elite Yelp team in North San Diego County to wake up to one of their amazing paninis that helped them land a spot on the Top 100 Places to Eat From Yelp in 2017 and 2018 and had everyone singing on Instagram: “Wake up Escondido! ”
I arrived around 12:30 on a Saturday and there were lots of people enjoying a meal. I ordered our Wake Up Escondido sandwich and the watermelon lemonade. The sandwich is a hot Nashville chicken-inspired breakfast sandwich with a small amount of Hoff sauce, hand-roasted house shredded chicken, a baked egg, sliced dill pickle, greens , havarti cheese, munster cheese and parmesan. Wow what a great complex sandwich! Not to mention the watermelon lemonade was incredibly refreshing and you could tell how authentic and real the ingredients are.

How did Sunny Side Kitchen get started?
Sunny Side Kitchen was born in 2011, when Kate was fired from her PR job. After some nightly soul-searching, she decided she wanted to do something completely different…bake cookies. Fast forward through a few years of farmer’s markets and brewery popups to 2015 when we opened the restaurant at 155 S. Orange Street in Escondido. Since then, we have been making cookies, as well as paninis, soups, salads and lemonades.
What are you best known for?
At Sunny Side Kitchen, we are talking about panini. Hot, tender and grilled sandwiches made to order. Our bestseller is a breakfast panini called The Works, which put Sunny Side on Yelp’s radar as part of its list of America’s Best Breakfast Sandwiches of 2020.
We want to send a huge thank you to the Yelp community. You put us on the map!
