Shopping & Dining at The Headquarters – San Diego

blawgsd

From 1939 until 1987, this beautiful building served as 
the headquarters for the San Diego Police Department. 
After almost 50 years, the department needed a bigger space.
They moved out, and eventually, renovators moved in.
In keeping with the original Spanish architecture,
details such as ironwork and roof tiles were preserved.
New life was breathed into this old piece of real estate
in the Seaport District of San Diego.

The fabulous result was aptly named "The Headquarters," 
a unique shopping and dining experience with historic appeal!

In the mood for a taste of Mexico, we decided on Puesto for lunch.
Casual outdoor dining under orange umbrellas!

Choosing 3 of the above, I was delighted to see some cool vegetarian options.
Make mine 2 Zucchini & Cactus and 1 Potato Soy Chorizo, please.
