The Perfect Time for Bites by The Pool Is “always”

a sandwich and fries on a plate

Is there anything better than a poolside lunch? What about a poolside lunch on a rooftop overlooking 5th ave? In our most humble opinion, Pool House San Diego is hands down the best place for a quick lunch, or for some quality time with the sun. Hey, if you sneak out on your lunch break for a quick dip, we’re not going to tell anybody. Plus, you have to punch out for lunch, so it’s technically on your own time anyways! Nobody can take your time away from you, so make sure that the day remains yours!


Let’s walk through it course by course. We’ll go from light dishes, to salads, to sandwiches, sides, and desserts. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite, or something more substantial, we’ve got you covered at The Pool House San Diego. We’re not only the best rooftop pool in San Diego, we’ve also got the best lunch! Our menu satisfies everybody who sticks around for lunch in the sun, so make sure you check out the full menu on our website! 


Our light dishes are perfect for a quick pick me up, or sharing with a friend. Or if you want to mix it up, there’s no shame in picking a couple items out and doing a mix and match. 

 Acai Bowl – Açaí Sorbet, Bananas, Strawberries, Granola, Frozen Blueberries, Shaved Coconut, Honey Drizzle, Peanut Butter (Optional)

 Cheese Quesadilla – Mexican blend cheese, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo (you can add chicken, steak, or shrimp for extra).

 Hiramasa Toastada – Cherry tomato, corn tortilla crisp, yuzu chile cashew crema.


And there’s plenty more where that came from on our meny! Let’s move on to Salads, shall we?


If you’re looking for a lighter option, or just want to be graced with the refreshing crunch of mixed greens, fruits, veggies, and protein, then we’ve got lots to talk about. 

 Kale Salad – Carrot, sesame seed, hen egg, parmesan, avocado, pickled shallots, tahini dressing.

 Maine Lobster Cobb Salad – Avocado, chopped romaine, bacon, egg, cherry, tomato, avocado ranch (add chicken, steak, or shrimp for extra).

 Apple & Quinoa Salad – Avocado, Chopped Romaine, Bacon, Egg, Cherry Tomato, Avocado Ranch


Now if your appetite is bigger than the vibe at our rooftop pool restaurant, then you might want to consider something off of our sandwiches, burgers, & entrées menu!



 So many choices here! We might as well just get into it.

 Breakfast Burrito – Chorizo, eggs, chipotle crema, cheddar cheese, fries, arbol chili hot sauce, and fresh fruit.

 Pool House Burger – Griddled onions, American cheese, tomato, pickle, butter lettuce, secret sauce.

While we’re on the subject, let’s quickly talk sides. Crispy seasoned fries? Check. Frozen mixed, seasonal fruit! Sign us up because that sounds delicious!

 What’s a rooftop pool lunch without something sweet to finish it off? We’re talking about our seasonal sorbet. Three scoops to be precise! Be sure to check in with your server, because while the flavors may change over time, the quality is always top notch.
