The Taco Stand Encinitas and Philz Coffee – Foodie Explorations

This post may contain affiliate links. Visit my affiliate disclosure page for more information.

Being that this blog is named after me, I realized that I don’t write many posts highlighting some of the cool food spots we hit up.

The best part about having a personal blog is being able to share the things that you find interesting.

That being said, I plan on including more posts detailing some of the many places we venture out to in the area and beyond.

We are foodies and we love trying out restaurants (new to us) and re-visiting some of our all-time faves.

Today we had to get a scheduled oil change for our car so we headed out early to get some coffee and breakfast burritos.

Not Any Ol’ Coffee – Philz Coffee!

I must give credit to my sister Holly who runs her own successful food blog at

Thanks to her many visits to San Francisco, she was able to experience the phenomenal Philz Coffee.

She brought us back a bag of beans and we were hooked. Fortunately, Philz has opened up a location in Encinitas which is not far from us.

Now we can enjoy Philz anytime we want and that is what we did today!

If you have never been and you’re in the area then why are you reading this, stop what you’re doing and go there now. 😀

We really enjoy Jacob’s Wonderbar and one of our favorite coffee drinks is the Mint Mojito pictured below:

Would I rate Philz better than Starbucks? Yes. I really like Philz Coffee flavors, and how they prepare the coffee.

Their food selections aren’t bad either. Give the avocado toast a try, it’s yummy.

The Taco Stand in Encinitas

We were starving and decided on breakfast burritos. We knew there were several Mexican restaurants along the 101 and headed back north.

The first place we saw was The Taco Stand. Little did we know how awesome this place would turn out to be.

We were the first ones there when they opened at 10 am and yes, there was a line forming behind us.

The locals already knew what was up. We ordered two ham and egg burritos but their ham delivery didn’t make it on time so they asked us if we’d like the angus beef burritos instead.

Really, I don’t think we could’ve gone wrong either way. The angus beef burritos were delicious!

The beef was super tender and the burritos were HUGE. I didn’t take any pics of them (I know, bummer) because we were starving and ate them at the car dealership.

The cool part is that they make everything by hand, including the tortillas. You can taste the quality.

They make a point of letting you know everything is made by hand and fresh to order.

We will be back to this restaurant and I will have plenty of food pics next time. This place is a must if you’re in the area.

A Taste of the Lifestyle Freedom

We are fortunate to live in such a great city with so many restaurants and venues to explore.

When we have the time off together, we enjoy exploring our city and our goal is to be able to do these things on a daily basis without being tied down to a job.

Yes, this is possible and it is what we are working towards with our online business.

What is Lifestyle Freedom?

Lifestyle freedom is having the freedom to do what you want with your free time. You are not bound by a clock or an employer.

Your business provides your financial stability and it is a type of business that can be run from anywhere with a WiFi connection.

One of the best businesses to have that can provide this lifestyle is an online business.

While there are many types of online businesses that you can operate, I prefer an online business that uses niche websites and affiliate marketing.

Why? This business model doesn’t require any inventory, shipping, or customer service.

My online business is growing each day and I’ve learned how to create it from the training inside of Wealthy Affiliate

Why You Should Start an Online Business

Regardless if you work full-time, part-time, or are unemployed, it will benefit you to start an online business of your own.

I’m a firm believer in having multiple streams of income. If one stream dries up, you have another stream to fall back on.

Let’s face it, there is no such thing as job security. I had to learn that the hard way after being laid off from my previous job.

I made a vow to create a business of my own so I sought help and training. I found that training at Wealthy Affiliate.

In Conclusion

We are working hard toward our lifestyle freedom goals. We celebrate every success and we are looking forward to the day when we are both free from the hustle and bustle.

My mission is to help whoever else wants to attain lifestyle freedom by working for themselves.

If you have the desire and the ability to follow step-by-step training, there is no reason why you cannot say goodbye to the 9-to-5 world.
