Located in the Flower Hill Promenade in Del Mar, Flower Child’s fundamental promise is to serve healthy food for a happy world. “Flower Child’s menu and aesthetic was a perfect fit in Southern California,” says director of Marketing Tracy McGinnis. “Our guests tell us time and time again how happy they are to have Flower Child in their community.”

Offering a scratch kitchen that uses high quality ingredients to create a healthy and nourishing meal, the menu boasts a unique mix of items that allows guests to customize their meals. “We evolve the menu around Mother Nature, and follow the dirty dozen list for produce,” explains McGinnis. “Our proteins are non GMO tofu, sustainably raised salmon, grass fed steak, and all natural chicken.”

Distinctive menu items include a unique vegan poke bowl where the traditional poke bowl is transformed with beets instead of fish, as well as mix and match plates where guests can choose a protein, then add vegetable sides to create their own personal meal. “Our guests are very in tune with what is happening in the food world,” Mcginnis says. “We are able to create unique flavors using ingredients such as tamari, nutritional yeast, miso, and smoked salt, to name a few.”

Flower Child in Del Mar has a great area for children to play. “It truly is a great place to bring your family, serve your kids a nutritious meal, and relax and have a glass of wine or local beer with your lunch or dinner,” says McGinnis. “Flower Child is a respite from the hectic day to day of our lives, and is extremely cheerful and peaceful. The time you spend in our store allows you to recharge and refuel your body and mind.”
