Meet Mammoth: Grab some grub

Grab some grub

Breakfast Club makes cinnamon rolls, hearty scrambles, and the Hangover Burger. Portions are I’ll-never-eat-again big. $; 2987 Main St.; 760/934-6944.

Schat’s bakery (pictured) is a carboloader’s dream, with 23 breads pulled from the oven daily (asiago, Basque, ciabatta, Russian rye, stone ground) and a fullspread sandwich bar that’s a great budget bag-lunch option. $; 3305 Main; 760/934-6055.

The sceniest spot in the Village is the Hyde Lounge. Aside from the bumpin’ music and nightclub vibe (at its peak after dinner), the food and drinks are good. Try the white grapefruit cosmo, burger, or tapas. $$; 6201 Minaret Rd.; 760/934-0669.

Whitebark at the Westin is stylish—all blond wood and artistic light fixtures. It feels like a special-occasion, leave-the-kidsat- home option (read: entrées are more than $30); you can always pop in for truffled mac ’n’ cheese and a glass of Pinot. $$$$; 50 Hillside Dr.; 760/934-0460.
