    "Great location..."

    Practically on the beach, the location of Caroline's can't be beat. This is a great place to take a break from strolling the beach for a cup of coffee, tea, breakfast or lunch. I had lunch there twice while visiting La Jolla and the food was great. This was a great place to stop on the way back from a long walk on the beach. The modern architecture is great too.
