Madison on Park: San Diego, California

Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend, I know I am! So I believe it was about a couple months ago I went to this great little brunch place that I thought was worth sharing. Especially if any of you live near the San Diego area, you need to check this out! It is located on Park Blvd (quite obviously) in San Diego. Here is the complete address if you find yourself wanting to visit after this post: 4622 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92116. This is the University Heights area. Image-3.jpgOne Sunday my friends and I decided to go to a restaurant for brunch. We had a place selected, but while waiting for our table we decided to walk around the area for a bit. It was a beautiful sunny day in San Diego and we ended up stumbling upon Madison on Park. The front of the restaurant is shown on the left and it didn’t look like a very big place, but as you walked through a short, colorful corridor (pictured on the right), you were led into a large area with a bunch of seating and high vaulted ceilings.

Critics have commented about Madison with, “Mediterranean-inspired fare and elegant cocktails…complete with arched vaulted ceilings, cedar-wood walls with bold, geometric designs and indoor/outdoor seating” (Zagat). I can’t describe to you guys just how amazing the decor in Madison is. I wish I would’ve taken more of my own photos to show the details a little better. With the wall graphics and use of unique wood textures, this place is the coolest hangout spot!Image-2.jpgOf course my graphic design loving side came out and I was obsessing over the menu layout. It fit their vibe so perfectly and you can tell whoever designed this place took great care with every little detail. I really appreciate that when it comes to restaurants, hotels, or homes. Everything is in the details, even if you don’t pick up on every one of them. They all combine to create an unforgettable experience. Every dish my friends and I got was very good and they also had a deal on mimosas. One thing I will add though, the service is extremely slow, but I think that’s kind of the point. They want you to sit and enjoy each others company with good conversations rather than focusing on the food. So I wouldn’t recommend going to this place if you’re starving and want something quick. It’s more of a small occasion type of place to have an easy Sunday. Since my own photos do not do this place justice, here are a few photos from Google that show more of the smaller details that make this place so adorable.
