A new and improved restaurant row brings a cascade of culinary innovation to North Park. In addition to up and coming edgy boutiques and bars, North Park now welcomes a new and slightly controversial restaurant: Commonwealth Café. This almost 24hr North Park restaurant is being received by San Diego as part-revolution and part-regret.
Commonwealth Café is an old-school restaurant with a contemporary design. From the electric teal ambient to the plethora of pennies commanding the counter and the authentic brick base, this North Park restaurant plays with the neighborhood tone while demanding a presence of its own.
Classic café grub is served at Commonwealth. Think oversized omelets, big burgers, classic buffalo wings, mac and cheese specialties, and homemade pie. Since initial construction Commonwealth has stirred up quite the buzz in North Park. While most eagerly anticipated a new neighborhood eatery, many questioned the rumors of an all-night establishment.
Over the past few months, questions turned into matters of legal zoning. And now, no operations are legally allowed in the area after midnight. Commonwealth observers and patrons now wonder why neighbor restaurants Sagauro’s and Jack in the Box remain open into the night. While the San Diego community supports the 24 hr vision of Commonwealth, the ongoing debate of all-night restaurants continues.
