Cs Deli is the best place to go and get a sandwich. The people that work there are so nice, and it isn't very expensive either. A good drink to try is any of the Izze drinks. They are all really good.
Sephora is a really good store to go to if you have the money. Most of the makeup there is expensive, and so buying eyeshadow would cost you about $20. The sales people there are friendly and always try to help you find whatever you need.
If you are looking for a place to rent chairs and tables for your party, then go to Raphaels Party Rentals. They are not very expensive, and they have friendly people there who help you load the things that you have rented into your car.
The Sweet Factory is located in the UTC mall. Whenever I shop at UTC, I always stop at the Sweet Factory for candy, because they have a good variety of candy. The candy isn't that expensive, but it is definately a good thing to have while shopping.
This store was actually hard to find in Mira Mesa, because it was on the second level. Teachers that are looking to decorate their rooms should come here. This supplies here are a little bit expensive, but there are a lot of cute things here for a classroom (especially elementary school teacher).
A Nite On The Town isn't just a place where brides can get their wedding dress, it is a place where teens can buy their prom dresses, or homecoming dresses. The dresses are mid-ranged priced, but there is a wide variety to choose from.
I love going to Memories! They have the cutest things there for scrapbooks. They have a wide variety of stickers, stamps, ribbons, and scrapbook pages to choose from. Whenever I need to get things for my scrapbook I always go to memories, because I can always find everything that I need. Though I will admit, the things there are a little expensive, it is worth it when your scrapbook is done.
I love CPK's pizzas. Though in my opinion, I do think that the pizzas are a little bit expensive, they are still really good. CPK has really good service, and the people there are so friendly and welcoming. It is a good family place.
Fashion Valley Mall is the best mall to shop at, because it has so many stores. It is outside, so that people can enjoy the nice California weather, and even if you do not feel like shopping, there is a movie theater and food court there. It is a very clean mall, and has a friendly atmosphere.
