One of the newest restaurants to hit Pt. Loma’s Liberty Station is the charming Fig Tree Café. The third location to open after successful branches in Pacific Beach and Hillcrest, the café is set to host a new influx of locals looking for friendly, neighborhood dining.
The garden patio makes for perfect al fresco ambience, especially for a weekend brunch. To end a stressful workday, steal away to one of the cozy nooks inside the restaurant or have a seat at the bar. The urban-meets-rustic vibe might just have you ordering the hearty short ribs, but not before you tuck in with the crispy eggplant appetizer. Be sure to save room for dessert! Order yourself a treat made with the café’s namesake ingredient—fig bread pudding.
Additionally, gluten free options of menu items are generally available and the establishment works to locally source eggs and produce from county farms. In 2011, they were recipients of the World Society For The Protection of Animals (WSPA) Award for offering humanely raised menu options.
Furthermore, Founder and Owner Johan Engman and Executive Chef and Co-Owner Alberto Morreale, are committed to giving back to their communities. At the Liberty Station location, military members and their families receive 10% off upon presenting their military ID. For the past two years, Fig Tree Cafe has closed to the public on Christmas Day in efforts to serve members of the military a complimentary gourmet dinner. This volunteer effort rallies both the restaurant staff and local patrons as a way to support the community’s prominent military presence. Last year, 100 guests were served and Fig Tree Cafe plans to hold the same event again this holiday season!
