In the decade or so since the historic (1923) U.S, Navy Training Center barracks in San Diego was retrofitted into Liberty Station, a massive commercial and residential node just north of San Diego International Airport, the complex has been a mecca for cafes, especially those serving espresso. Kudos to the McMillian Companies credit they developed Liberty Station by keeping the original Spanish Revival architecture.
The latest complex within a complex is the Liberty Public Market, which is currently enjoying its grand opening month. The new venue showcases
a rustic environment with prepared foods, beer, wine, specialty cocktails, fresh produce, fish counter, meat market, olive oil tasting and retail shop; desserts and pastries, pastas, arts and crafts, a test kitchen, pop up dinners, and educational driven events. And, of course, coffee and pastries places. It is reminiscent of a small version of the popular central marketplaces in Europe, especially in Valencia, Madrid and Barcelona, Spain.
