Monday, October 28th is National Chocolate Day and there is no better way to celebrate than by indulging in a chocolatey dessert (or breakfast) at one of these San Diego spots!

Dive into The Duck Dive on National Chocolate Day to try their Chocolate Chip Pazookie! The PB lounge and eatery serves this chocolatey treat in a warm skillet, with a scoop of ice cream, all drizzled with caramel and chocolate sauce. After just one bite, you won’t be able to put your spoon down.

We know City Tacos has some of San Diego’s best tacos, but did you know they also offer some of the tastiest Churros?! At all three locations – North Park, La Mesa and Imperial Beach – stop in to try the traditional dough spears, rolled in cinnamon and sugar, and paired with homemade chocolate syrup and Cajeta. You won’t be disappointed!

If you’re out running errands or need a quick sugary fix to fuel through a day of shopping at The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, stop into Baked Bear for a custom ice cream sandwich. All cookies are homemade from original recipes and the ice cream is made with the highest quality ingredients to create the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Go all out-chocolate on October 28th by selecting chocolate chip cookies or brownies and adding a drizzle of hot fudge. Choose between delicious ice cream flavors like dark chocolate, salted caramel fudge or toasted s’mores.

Start National Chocolate Day on the right foot at Breakfast Republic. Visit any of the beloved breakfast spot’s eight San Diego locations, from Ocean Beach to Carmel Valley, and celebrate with an order of chocolate Oreo Cookie Pancakes, served with cream filling and Oreo cookie crumble. If you’re more of a savory breakfast kind-of-person, have no fear. You can enjoy a bit of chocolate in Breakfast Republic’sMexican Mocha or Oreo Cookie specialty latte instead!

Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill invites you to get a little messy on October 28th by ordering their Messy Sundae. Vanilla ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, walnuts and whipped cream make up this oh-so-delicious chocolate dream dessert. Or treat yourself to the Flourless Chocolate Cake, topped with caramelized banana sauce and toasted walnuts – you can’t go wrong with either.
