Last Sunday afternoon (3/11), Bestawan Pizza was packed. The patio was full before 5PM. Its not even spring yet!!!!! What will happen in the summertime? We should have a Bestawan "locals" card for priority seating.


Blaneous Noches March 13, 2013 @ 11:22 p.m.

I agree! Maybe they'll consider making one night a week a "Local's Night" where locals get a free beer with a pie... Little timely history...Besta-Wan was the first Pizza Place in Encinitas / Cardiff maybe even further out (as far as I know and remember at age 6). Besta-Wan opened 48 years ago yesterday according to Joe Corder who's Parents opened it March 12th, 1965.


Johnny91191 March 14, 2013 @ 5:33 a.m.

My grandma said, at the time, it would never last 6 months. There weren't enough people around to support a pizza place. She apologized to Mrs. Corder at the restaurant's 30th anniversary.


Ken Harrison March 14, 2013 @ 5:42 a.m.

Hey Mr. Noches, Thanks for the history lesson. I knew the year but not the exact date that Bestawan opened. Can anyone else name the other restaurant that opened in 1965? Bestawan and this other restaurant are the oldest continually operated food places in Cardiff.


Ken Harrison March 29, 2013 @ 5:05 p.m.

GIve up? It was Jack in the Box. VG's also opened in 1965, but never really counted donuts as a "restaurant."


Ken Harrison March 13, 2013 @ 6:59 a.m.

Here's the Caltrans website to suggest landscapping for the Park N Ride lot.


Johnny91191 March 14, 2013 @ 5:35 a.m.

I filled out the form. Others need to do this too. I also asked them why they don't have Cardiff by the Sea listed as a town? So I had to say I was from . . . Encinitas. Yuk.


Ken Harrison March 15, 2013 @ 6:42 a.m.

Here's Caltrans response: "We drove this area today and found that the on and off ramps northbound have healthy landscape, strong ice plants, and are in good condition. We also litter on a frequent basis. There is another area right at the corner of Birmingham and Villa Cardiff, this area is not our responsibility, it belongs to the City."


Ken Harrison March 15, 2013 @ 8:52 a.m.

Here's the City of Encinitas' Streets/General/Maintenance/Repair # (760) 633-2850. I did not see an e-mail option. Unfortunately this requires actual human contact by using a phone and talking to a real person, which some of you on line junkies may need some help with.


RodSD March 14, 2013 @ 7:44 a.m.

You're right. The Park N Ride is "a dump!" Thanks for posting the link Ken. Let's start poking Caltrans and see about some "better than a dump" funds. :-)


Ken Harrison March 12, 2013 @ 8:21 a.m.

Old Fire Station What do we think should happen to the old Cardiff fire station at Birmingham and MacKinnon? Probably not enough parking for a community center or historical society. City has no plans as of now but will be discussing soon. Maybe just sell it on behalf of taxpayers for another ocean-view duplex?


Blaneous Noches March 13, 2013 @ 11:30 p.m.

That is so cool you put this out for ideas as I have been hoping the City would do something great with this this very visual property. But given the traffic influence a children's park would be to scary... it would most likely have to be something along the lines of an artistic monument or view tower or .... Why we're pondering..Can we please get all the overhead lines underground?!


Ken Harrison March 14, 2013 @ 11:25 a.m.

A view tower? What a great idea!!! With a three story tower, you could see for miles in every direction. The footprint would be smaller than the fire station, which would allow for more parking. It could be an artistic statement.


camillebythesea March 15, 2013 @ 8:10 a.m.

Let's call this the Cardiff-by-the-Sea Holler...We fought Rand McNally to keep this bequilling name and I encourage people to use it alsway unless space prohibits.


Ken Harrison March 15, 2013 @ 8:50 a.m.

Here, Here! And I'll check with DMV why we can't have our whole town name on our drivers license. Yes space limited to 13 characters, but expanded it. We have the technology . . . oh but wait, we are talking about the DMV here.


Ken Harrison March 15, 2013 @ 3:05 p.m.

I checked with businesses in Carmel by the Sea, including the post office. Carmel-by-the-Sea in just like Cardiff BTS with Encinitas, part of the city of Carmel. Carmel BTS has a separate zip code and only PO Box delivery, no street delivery. A Citbank employee says she thought drivers licenses just say "Carmel." But here's the kicker . . . Carmel by the Sea homes do not have addresses, even for pizza guys or emergency services. Only street names and . . . each home on that street has a . . . name!!!!! Like "Whitestone" or "Seaweed View." You have to name your home, that's how people find you!!!!! Is that cool or what?


Ken Harrison March 15, 2013 @ 7:42 p.m.

Cardiff by the Sea is Hot Property. Homeonwers can relax again. Cardiff ranked 4th in SoCal for home price recovery. Location, location, location? See my story in The Reader.


Ken Harrison March 21, 2013 @ 12:51 p.m.

STOP Doesn't Mean Slightly Tap Other Pedal One of the intersections in Cardiff by the Sea where area residents are getting a little wary of folks not stopping at STOP signs, or speeding down residential streets trying to by-pass congested Santa Fe and Birmingham commuters getting on the freeway. The Sheriff's Dept. is aware of the problem intersections, specifically this one at the corner of Nolbey and LeGaye. A radar moto officer was also seen recently at the bottom of the hill on Nolbey St. BTW - A STOP sign violation or speeding in a residential area will cost one around $400 in fines, court fees, and traffic school.



Ken Harrison March 22, 2013 @ 8:40 a.m.

Five Cardiff Fences Hit Three blocks of MacKinnon south of Santa Fe Dr. were hit last night by the . . . good journalism practices and reporters not wanting to bolster the gangsta's standing in their community . . . that and my wife would kill me for possibly putting myself in danger . . . dictate I don't mention the gang's name. It's not like the sheriff's don't know who you guys are. It appears to be a tribute to one of their own who is currently in jail. One who I'm sure, his parents are very proud.



Ken Harrison March 22, 2013 @ 9:55 a.m.

Lost Bike This boy had to be picked up from school by his parents and spent several days away from school. They didn't realize til later that he rode his bike that day. Of course it was gone by then. (Ada Harris becomes a community park and playground after school is out - accessible to all). Let help him find his bike - a kids pride and joy.



Davis March 22, 2013 @ 12:28 p.m.

Unfortunately he's not alone. It seems there are plenty sticky fingers when it comes to bikes being left at school. My son's friend's bike was stolen last spring. He mistakenly left it there overnight, and came the next morning to the cut bike lock next to the empty stand. So much for recovering that very expensive bmx bike.


Ken Harrison March 27, 2013 @ 2:48 p.m.

Update on Birmingham Park N Ride. Here's the latest. (Check previous posts if you're coming to class late on this issue.) City of Encinitas doesn't think it belongs to them. Caltrans has signs posted on this strip and installed the irrigation system (which obviously isn't being used.)

I'd say it belongs to Caltrans, even though they deny it. In the historic words of Pat Rudolph "this is a cruddy mess and they need to clean it up." - 1976, Mother of Cardiff, founder of the Cardiff by the Sea Town Council.

Clink here to file a complaint with Caltrans:


Ken Harrison April 3, 2013 @ 11:09 p.m.

As of today 4/3/13, Caltrans is no longer denying it is their property and are looking into what it would take to "fix" the problem. It has been turn over to Caltrans' landscaping department for review and budgeting.


Ken Harrison March 29, 2013 @ 1:55 p.m.

Summer Bummer No Joke! The South Coast AQMD - Air Quality Management DIstrict - is actually studying outlawing all beach bonfires in their jurisdiction. Fortunately Cardiff, Encinitas, and the rest of San DIego County is not regulated by the non-elected regulatory district. But if approved for Orange and L.A. counties, would the nanny-neenies our local Air Pollution District be far behind? The AQMD is actually studying the installation of propane-only fire rings. Now there's a good idea, a propane tank and drunk beach bums together.


haydesigner Oct. 9, 2015 @ 6:03 p.m.

And now Flat Rocks is closed, and it is apparently going to be a pizza place.

Hoot and Holler for Seaside Market whose generous support continues to keep Cardiff filled with gardens of flowers and welcomes all residents and visitors alike with the warmth of their hospitality.

Another Hoot and Holler for Cardiff Library and San Diego County Library whose continuous efforts provide residents and visitors alike with the expertise and warmth of their staff, collections, calendar events, and landscaped gardens which further enhance this community.

1,000 Consecutive Days!!!!! Cardiff by the Sea local Blane Adessa celebrated a huge milestone last Wednesday April 10th. He swam every day, for 1,000 consecutive days. Mostly off the beaches of Cardiff and Encinitas, but even in Big Bear Lake in the winter, or polluted Salton Sea, or wherever life may have taken him. He made the commitment to himself, his body, and his young family, to do this to stay in shape and be around for many more years to come. He looks great, has obviously toned up and lost some weight. You'd never know he was 61 years old! He is an inspiration to all of us locals who now qualify for the Senior Menu at Dennys. Keep it up Blane. You are a great community supporter and good friend to all you meet.

BTW - He's only 54 :)


Joaquin_de_la_Mesa May 6, 2013 @ 1:35 p.m.

Anybody who swims in the salton sea has my respect.


Ken Harrison April 12, 2013 @ 12:18 p.m.

Update on Caltrans Mess at Park N Ride Comments here on The Reader's Cardiff by the Sea Holler and those of you that filed the e-form with Caltrans requesting a clean up, has made a difference. The 20 foot patch of dirt - Caltrans' responsibility - was cleaned up last weekend. Thanks Caltrans! All the weeds seen in the previous photo are now gone. Now on to repairing the broken sprinklers and re-landscaping. It would make the most sense to finish the sidewalk to nowhere coming from the northbound Fwy on ramp. This contributor will be following up with Caltrans to see what the plans are


haydesigner Oct. 9, 2015 @ 6:06 p.m.

They apparently are planning to build two roundabouts on both sides of the Birmingham exit… and it looks like this whole part will be going away.

Dear Cardiff Families,

This Message From The Cardiff School District RE: Loss of a Cardiff Family's Home "One of our Cardiff families, the Porreco’s, experienced a tragedy yesterday evening when their house caught fire around 5:00pm. Thankfully, no one was at home at the time and the fire department was able to contain the fire to the garage and only part of the house. However, everything in the house is damaged by either smoke or water. You can help this family during this difficult time by donating gift cards or cash so they can purchase clothing, food and other necessities. You can drop donations off at either school office. Cielo and Rich Porreco have three children, Nick (a 4th grader at Ada Harris), Iliana (a 1st grader at Cardiff) and Josh (a 3 year old). Thank you for your generosity during their time of need."

A HOLLER for the San Elijo Beach (Kook's Beach) - for the serenity of meditation that walking the beach, watching surfers, the sea, artists provides.


Readerreg April 23, 2013 @ 7:12 p.m.

WOW!!! there is a banana tree in Cardiff, CA. And it has bunches of bananas on its branches, beneath which is the most extraordinary blossom I have ever seen! This is certainly worthy of a HOLLER or two!


Readerreg April 24, 2013 @ 6:21 a.m.

It's on Chesterfield Drive at the N.W. corner of either Oxford or Montgomery Avenues.


Readerreg April 25, 2013 @ 9:37 a.m.

In my previous posts I selected some specific "sites" that make Cardiff an ideal place to live, work, and visit. They certainly create the quality of life Cardiffians enjoy. Additionally, the active, spiritual, respectful, concerned and caring for one another lifestyle of residents and visitors alike is so evident in this community and is a major consideration too.

And, although it is just over the northern geographic boundary of Cardiff, in Encinitas, my HOLLER must include the meditation gardens of the Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) with koi ponds, which is open to the public.


Ken Harrison May 1, 2013 @ 6:28 a.m.

I think we ought to "bend" the boundary of Santa Fe Dr. to include SRF!


Readerreg May 2, 2013 @ 4:36 p.m.

I agree and I have already done so for myself.


Readerreg April 28, 2013 @ 9:09 p.m.

Here's a HOLLER for the many "green thumbs" who have cultivated the berms adjacent to the Coaster and Amtrak tracks between Birmingham Avenue on the North and Chesterfield Drive on the South with wildflowers and a walking path from which to enjoy them.

And, just South of this intersection bordered by San Elijo Avenue, Norfolk Drive, and Newcastle Avenue is Glen Park, another breath of fresh air. The park has a children's playground, basketball, tennis, and bocce courts, set-ups for volleyball, well-manicured lawns, a day-camp, water fountains, and restrooms.


Ken Harrison May 14, 2013 @ 11:55 a.m.

A Mini-Skateboard Full Pipe in Park Place? Residents of the Park Place may have been wondering what's up with all the big, black plastic drain pipes that have been sitting idle for months, in the park, near the baseball diamond. The inside scoop is, that the HOA started to lay the pipe in the creek, that would eventually be covered up and made more safe than the 15' - 20' deep ravine that is there now. Problem is, although this is a private 25 acre park, the water in, and where it drains to, it is not. Water rights and drainage rights are given more to the highest source (the few remaining greenhouses on Lake Dr.), and the end receptor (San Elijo Lagoon). Unfortunately the Park Place HOA is right in the middle, and supposedly an over-regulated federal wildlife or environmental agency is now involved because the HOA did not get the necessary permits to be allowed to upset the flow. Also the annual migration of the local Egret that lives in the area part might would be ticked off too, and that would tick of the environmentalists. Everything has ground to a halt. Can anyone ad more info to this post?


haydesigner Oct. 9, 2015 @ 6:08 p.m.

The project was indeed fully nixed, and all of the pipes and construction materials are now completely gone from the park.

Goodbye Ada Harris Many 6th grader parents were walking on emotional egg shells last night as we attended out last school function - open house - before 6th grade promotion in two weeks and the end of our formal relationship with Cardiff schools. Some of us families have been attending school functions together since Kindergarten. While we parents all understand that our job as parents require we watch our children grow up, did it have to happen so quickly. 7 years went by in a flash. A heart-felt thank you all Ada Harris teachers and staff!!!!


Readerreg May 31, 2013 @ 9:10 a.m.

Amen! My grandson is a 6th grader in Cardiff Schools and has been fortunate to have been a student there since kindergarten. I share your walk on egg-shells. And, I also share the excitement of the coming school years experiences.


Ken Harrison June 1, 2013 @ 11:46 p.m.

Good Bye To John Those of us who grew up in Cardiff by the Sea in the 1960s will remember our pal John Scheunemann, from school, scouts, church, or little league. John retired from Frito-Lay recently, and he and his wife Debbie are packing up and moving from North County to Allentown, PA for good - in nine days.

John and Debbie will be part of the thousands of Californians, that once they move to some other part of the country and realize how crazy it is to live in Calif. now, will probably never return to their home.

Stay in touch buddy!


Readerreg June 2, 2013 @ 7:05 a.m.

John, I regret that I have not gotten to know you but I have gotten to know Cardiff and cannot believe that you will not miss Cardiff as much as you will be missed by all Cardiffians. Best wishes.


Readerreg June 2, 2013 @ 7:34 a.m.

P.S. Love the Cardiff photos - a precious archive. If you haven't already done so, please preserve. This collection would make a memorable parting gift to John and Debbie John Scheunemann, lest they ever forget Cardiff!

Ken Harrison June 14, 2013 @ 2:04 p.m.

Ken Harrison June 21, 2013 @ 7:32 a.m.

Lifeguards With Guns? This guy and I had a little dance last Friday afternoon in the Seaside parking lot. I'm sure he was going to give me a ticket for parking next to the red cement blocks that are placed all along the beachfront. Where is one to unload momentarily? After he lectured us on the difference between red and yellow curbs, questioned our vision, and I quickly moved my car, I didn't receive a ticket.

His Rambo attitude was not appreciated by the several middle-aged parents of school kids just celebrating the last day of the school year at the beach. After paying $15 to park, we expect a better attitude from those who serve the public.

BTW Robocop (the most polite name given to you by several surfers and regular beach-goers) you parked your patrol truck illegally in the same red zone. Calif. Vehicle Code 22500 does not allow exemptions for peace officers parking in red zones in non-emergency situations. And your dissertation on the difference between red and yellow zones was also incorrect. Only commercially plated vehicles may park in yellow zones for the purposes of loading and unloading.

Really, we need lifeguards with guns? Sounds like this was a peace officer’s union scheming-job-creating-more pensions effort to add yet another level of law enforcement. As if armed State Rangers, Sheriff’s Dept., CHP, Mira Costa College police, and the Amtrak police aren’t enough to protect and serve Cardiff residents.


Readerreg June 24, 2013 @ 11:34 a.m.

Re: Lifeguards with guns: We had a similar incident at Cardiff State beach last week. I am 74 and use a mobility device (trekking poles) and as my son drove to the curb just past the entry booth the young man who was staffing the booth began to scream at my son that he could not stop son explained that he was just dropping his mother off...the young man continued to scream at my son and, in doing so, attracted lots of beach going persons attention who offered to help me out of the car with my trekking poles...the young man shouted again that he had been harassed and threatened earlier in the day and that my son could not stop to let me off and that he was calling the police.... I finally did just get out of the car and my son drove off. GESTAPO TACTICS IN CARDIFF BY THE SEA???!


Ken Harrison June 22, 2013 @ 2:34 p.m.

No Good Chinese Food? Cardiff BTS's only Asian place, Hunan Manor is closed. While their Chinese food was excellent, the location behind the Chevron station was kind of weird. Not a location you automatically think off to go out to eat. Lunch specials were reasonably priced but dinner was a little pricey. Chinese food, even good Chinese, should not be that expensive. Hunan Manor was the 2nd incarnation of a Chinese restaurant at that site, proceeded by Taco Bell, and originally and old-school style IHOP with the pitched blue roof. Now going to be a Mexican place - Casa Q'ero - with beer & wine, so probably not a taco shop type.


haydesigner Oct. 9, 2015 @ 6:14 p.m.

Casa De Qero is Peruvian, not Mexican. And yeah, it is a weird location.


Ken Harrison June 22, 2013 @ 2:43 p.m.

Lu's Gone :( :( :( Lu's coffee cart, a fixture at the Valero station for over 20 years, has closed. When the gas station was adding the new patio at their El Pueblo taco shop, she had to close down for the construction. According to one of the Valero employees, the owners raised her lease, but she didn't really decide to close until the patio re-opened. She had complained prior that the taco shop had become so popular that her business was down and no room for parking of her customers. With the beautiful new patio, there's always a line at El Pueblo now.

Lu knew all of her customers, and was kind of the "pickle barrel/pot bellied stove" place for cussin' and discussin' the issues of us Cardiff BTS residents on the east side.

Anyone know if she plans to re-open somewhere? She owned the cart.


Ken Harrison July 25, 2013 @ 7:02 a.m.

Follow the Money

Less than two weeks after an I-5 crash damaged a section of the freeway's fence []

CalTrans was back to repair it. Pretty quick service? Nope. The state had the driver's insurance company to bill. One has to wonder how long it would have taken to repair if the fence had just fallen down? To Caltrans' credit, while on site, they did fix two other spots on the fence that had needed minor repairs for many months.

A Great BIG Holler to the staff, volunteers, patrons of Rancho Coastal Humane Society on the near completion of the restoration of their formerly miniscule thrift shop. It is nearly complete and has been transformed into a comfortably ample shop. During this process, however they were all subjected to store closures and a noise-filled environment in which they could hardly hear themselves speak or think - hardly a "humane" environment to work or shop in. Bravo to you all!

"...The City of Encinitas is evaluating the need, cost effectiveness and long term sustainability of a locally operated shuttle service system...." It has posted an online Transit Survey at:

"...Beginning September 23, 2013, Encinitas residents are encouraged to take an online Transit Survey, in which they can share their opinions on current transit systems and their visions for a future transit model.

The ten-question survey will take only a few minutes to complete, but the information gleaned will be invaluable, says Planning Intern Keelie Rocker. She states, “The City would like to get as much feedback as possible, so we hope that many Encinitans will take the time to help us plan the system of tomorrow...”

There are also copies of the survey in the library (Cardiff and Encinitas)

This is an important and urgent quality of life issue for all residents of Encinitas. .

Holler for Paul Eckes Central Elementary School in Encinitas and the San Diego Symphony Orchestra! Recently, the 3rd and 4th grade students at Paul Eckes Central Elementary School attended a concert provided by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. The concert, "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra", was composed by Benjamin Britten and is a celebration of the composer's 100th birthday year. For most, if not all, the students this may be their first symphony concert and will serve to introduce them to the four families of instruments that make up an orchestra: Woodwinds, Brass, Strings and Percussion

Just a reminder to all lest we take it for granted: we have the privilege of using and enjoying a great library system that makes even the remotest book requests possible and deliverable to our local/requested branch library. We also can enjoy the comfort of our branch libraries and their programs without any charge.

A long over due acknowledgement: The City of Encinitas and San Diego County for the abundance of Yoga classes available to this community that are FREE: San Diego County Libraries, Encinitas and Cardiff, YMCA, Temple Solel to name a few. My apologies to all other Yoga classes unknown to me and not mentioned by name - please respond with this information so you, too, can be credited. With my great appreciation.

Correction: "FREE Yoga entry by Readerreg Aug. 23, 2014": With the exception of the YMCA, which requires membership for their programs, all of the other Yoga classes are free.
