Café Cantata is a new eatery and coffee shop that opened this month, by the owner of Fig Tree Cafe. The name comes from Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Coffee Cantata.”
It’s located on the second floor of the Flower Hill plaza in Del Mar. I had lunch there recently with CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High.
I really enjoyed a lot of the creative decor, which provided me with some inspiration as I continue to furnish my house.
The lunch menu offers an array of sandwiches and salads. They also offer some pastries from a local bakery.
All the sandwiches come with a choice of side salad, fruit, or soup. I chose a side salad. The pressed sandwich was stuffed with eggplant, peppers and cucumber slices. The bread also had a pesto spread. I enjoyed the pesto and the eggplant, but wish there was less of the peppers and cucumbers and more of the eggplant.
Chicken Salad Sandwich
I had a bite of CC’s chicken salad and enjoyed how flavorful it was. I don’t think she liked the bread as much though.
Overall, this was a good place to grab a quick bite to eat and catch up with a friend. The prices were pretty reasonable and it was just a nice atmosphere for a casual lunch. I also left with some great house decorating ideas.
