The Garden of Eat`N

About Us:

My name is Dina. I retired from working for the CA state Senate in 2017 and moved to San Felipe, selling everything I owned and never looked back. Fast forward a few years and met my husband Paul who is not only an amazing human but an amazing Chef. We married in June of 2022.

The Garden of Eat'n concept was started in the summer of 2021. Chef Paul and I wanted to open a restaurant but restaurant space was scarce. We stumbled upon a beautiful food truck designed by an artist in Tijuana. We brought it back to San Felipe and have created from a dirt lot, a beautiful Garden outdoor Restaurant.

We are open for Breakfast and Lunch. Wednesday-Saturday 7:30-2:00 and Sunday 8:00-1:00 for Brunch only. We also are open Friday Nights for Dinner 4-7. Our Menu changes every other week. We offer fresh homemade soups, salads, panini's, sandwiches, chef specials, smoothies, and of course Chef Pauls homemade hollandaise sauce to top the several Eggs Benedict Sunday Brunch selections we offer. Please follow our Facebook page for menu and specials.

We also offer catering for small or large parties, fruit trays, vegetables trays and party platters.

Why San Felipe:

San Felipe is a friendly and diverse neighborhood where generation after generation has put down roots, grown families, and started businesses. But every once in a while, a new idea finds its way to the vibrant fishing village and makes a mark on the community. One of these ideas was Garden of Eatn.

Back in 2017, Dina Lucero retired from her job in the CA State Senate and was looking for change and adventure. She set her eyes on the beauty and opportunity in San Felipe, sold everything she had, and never looked back. A few years later, she met her husband Paul who just happened to be a passionate and talented chef. Together, with their combined love of food and community, started dreaming about offering healthy and fresh food to the people of San Felipe. These dreams led to serious conversations about opening a restaurant, but they struggled to find restaurant space amongst all of the other established eateries in the town. So they changed their strategy and bought a gorgeous food truck hand painted by an artist in Tijuana. They brought the food truck back to San Felipe, bought some land, and got to work carefully curating a menu that would feature classic breakfast and brunch dishes with an elevated twist.

Things started to come together, and soon they were watching their dream of a garden restaurant come together. They called it The Garden of Eatn.

One of the unique aspects of this restaurant is that the menu changes every week. Swing by on your lunch break and try the fresh homemade soups, salads, paninis, sandwiches, chef, and daily specials. Early birds can stop by in the mornings and enjoy freshly made smoothies, and the famous Eggs Benedict topped with Chef Paul's homemade hollandaise sauce,
