What a wonderful time I had at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage, a lovingly restored Craftsman bungalow built in 1913. It's in a great neighborhood, close to restaurants on Goldfinch Avenue -- don't miss the eccentric coffee stand, Meshuggah Shack -- and up the hill from Saffron (on India), specializing in incredible marinated chlcken. And it's only 15 minutes away from Balboa Park's theaters and museums. Proprietress (yes, that's what she calls herself) Joan Crone was an attentive hostess and I enjoyed our conversation. Perhaps my favorite part of the weekend was sitting on the porch swing on the stone-walled patio, a breeze wafting over me. .
