Uh-oh – it sounds like you didn’t see the value in your meal at JSIX. Our chef Anthony is a fanatic about buying local, super-fresh ingredients from trusted farmers, which can make dishes on the menu feel a bit on the pricey side.

Small breakfast menu, but everything is really good . The baked basket was delicious. The banna bread is excellent. Servers are very friendly.

Description
Jsix is a neighborhood restaurant and bar located in San Diego's East Village. Here, one can celebrate the simple things in life: a hard day's work and a good meal served alongside warm hospitality. Food that pays respect to culinary ingenuity but is stripped of unnecessary complexities is served alongside cocktails that exemplify the tradition and history of the craft. Those looking for a rooftop bar can head up to Upper East for some savory seasonal bites and craft cocktails poolside. Welcome to Jsix, where one is always a friend, never a stranger.
