Caroline’s Seaside Café by Giuseppe is located on the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus in the Seaside Forum. Serving healthy and creative California style cuisine daily, Caroline’s menu focuses on organic and sustainable sources, hormone-free meats and poultry.

The café features breakfast and lunch with a selection of seasonal specials. Espresso drinks and baked goods are available at the counter all day.
