It all started back in 1997 when we opened our first restaurant in Escondido, California and we simply named it Centre City Café because it was sitting just across a main street in Escondido called Centre City Parkway. This restaurant was built some 40 years ago and the ownership just kept changing until we took it over. We were determined to change the luck of this place. We truly believed that by providing personal and exceptional service, quality food and great atmosphere, we had to succeed. We all have worked very hard making sure that every guest had that personal attention, that every plate looked picture perfect and of course, that the quality of food was just something you couldn’t forget.
That consistency and hard work really paid of and that’s why we are where we are today, with four more locations and hopefully growing. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, there is always a lot to choose from on our 9 page menu, and just in case you are not able to find something that will satisfy your taste buds, there is always a list of our specials that change daily and include American, Hungarian, Italian and Mexican dishes.
What makes us unique and different is that our food is made fresh daily with out of this world dinner rolls, biscuits, secret recipe home-made dressings, hearty soups, gravies, house ground hamburger patties, and oven-roasted turkey breats. We offer a large selection of USDA choice steaks cut daily on presmies, Hungarian goulash, cabbage rolls, stuffed bell peppers and last but not least, a large selection mama’s home-made pies. Freshness, high-quality ingredients home style cooking makes San Diego Home Cooking an upscale affordable café experience.
