Little Lion is a 30 seat breakfast and lunch spot that just opened on the Cliffs. It is owned and operated by three sisters who grew up in the restaurant business here in Point Loma.
Named for their dog who looks a little like a lion, the restaurant offers a variety of fresh salads, soups and smoothies for breakfast and lunch Tuesdays through Fridays. The weekend menu they say is breakfast all day long with items such as Belgian waffles and Eggs Benedict I think I heard.
I decided to try the Chocolate Hemp Smoothie since I'm trying to recouperate after all the holiday eating. It is $6.00. These sisters know their coffee by the way, it's excellent.
It was the perfect size and balance of flavors. Delicious, not too sweet. Whipped up along with the hemp milk was agave, vanilla, cocoa, peanut butter and banana. I have to say it was the best smoothie I've ever tasted.
Inside the restaurant is a cozy atmosphere where the waitstaff, usually one of the sisters, is very attentive and friendly. As the weather gets warmer the tables outside will be the place to sit and watch the sun set. They plan to open for dinner soon but for now the kitchen closes at 3pm.
