Went there for lunch and we were amazed by the quantity and quality of the sandwiches we ordered (roast beef and tunafish). This has to be the best value menu for any restaurant in La Jolla. And as an added benefit, the food was delicious.

Taking a hint from Rachel Ray we frequently ask the local residents for a restaurant recommendation. Without hesitation the locals recommended Girard Gourmet. The food was good, the service was exceptional, the price was good. I wholeheartedly recommend Girard Gourmet.

Have you tried to CALL them? They're a very small place, so I wouldn't expect a lot of flexibility, but if you order in advance they may be able to accommodate you.
