Or maybe you’re finding yourself in need of a healthy spot for a client lunch or a quiet place to enjoy a smoothie while getting some quick work done.

What you need to know

Joya Kitchen is located at 10275 Science Center Drive, San Diego, CA, 92121 in the La Jolla area. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8am-3pm, and happy hour is Thursday-Friday 3pm-7pm. You can choose to either dine in or order takeout. Additionally, Joya Kitchen’s  4,000 square foot indoor and outdoor dining space is ideal for parties of any size. So if your ideal lunch involves dozens of people, feel free to contact us to see how you can make the most of our space for your gathering.


Joya’s menu is prepared in collaboration with Chef/Partner Jojo Ruiz and Chef De Cuisine Ryan Bullock. The menu features breakfast options like freshly pressed juices, smoothies, acai bowls, and coffee, while lunch and happy hour menus will include dishes that speak to the seasonality and freshness of what San Diego has to offer.

If you’re an early bird in the La Jolla area, and you’re looking for a great way to start your day, you might want to consider the Acai Bowl with maple almond granola, banana, keto butter shredded organic coconut, and mixed berries with a hot tea. Maybe you sleep a little later and skip breakfast entirely. Well you’re in luck, because your options go on for days. Sometimes you’ve just gotta have a burger and fries to get your day going… or if you’re looking for something a little more on the light side, you can’t go wrong with a hummus wrap with confit garlic hummus, bloomsdale spinach, shredded beets, red onion, avocado, crispy sweet potato, and cilantro.

Healthy lunch aside, maybe you’re hitting the gym on your lunch break, and you want to re-up from one of Joya Kitchen’s many selections of juices and smoothies before getting back to the grind. Joya Kitchen runs the gamut from berry to peanut butter smoothies, and offers add-ons such as organic pea protein, collagen powder, and vital mineral greens. No matter how you like getting your macros in, Joya Kitchen offers healthy, local, and sustainable food to the La Jolla area that you’ll have to taste to believe.
