The Women Making San Diego a Foodie Destination

These females are redefining San Diego’s Culinary Scene

Terryl Gavre of Cafe 222

The restaurant owner of this bustling eatery near the Gaslamp District has been serving up indulgent, comforting creations for breakfast and lunch (like pecan waffles, huevos rancheros, and beef chili) to hungry locals for over 25 years. And to this day, Cafe 222 consistently ranks as one of the city’s best.

Vivian Hernandez of Azucar

Raised in Miami to Cuban parents, Hernandez has had a deep, lifelong relationship with Cuban cuisine. And at Ocean Beach bakery, she puts her passion into her work, by specializing in contemporary desserts with a fun, tropical twist (think guava and cream cheese pastelitos, raspberry passionfruit scone, and strawberry cupcakes).

Karen Krasne of Extraordinary Desserts

As her business name implies, the speciality of the San Diego native is all things sweet. And at her city mainstay located in Little Italy, Krasne creates a colorful selection of baked goods to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, from the best-selling chocolate croissant bread pudding to classic crème brûlée.
