...but it's certainly not MY thing! To me, going in here is like walking into hell. Creepy reptiles everywhere (but I guess that's the point...) and crickets jumping all over the floor... yuck! But my brother, the snake guy, loves it in here.
Petco doesn't even come close. I have a sensitive sense of smell, so the stench of birds everywhere kind of got to me, but if you're a real bird lover I imagine that this wouldn't bother you.
I've bought two chairs from here in the last year. One of them was a father's day gift for my dad. I went in on the Saturday before hand, and they were able to have it ready for him to sit in the next day... they saved father's day!!
In my opinion, the gifts this store sells are way overpriced for something you could probably make on your own. But maybe it's just me-- my grandma will come in here and oggle everything for hours and then walk out with two armfuls of stuff.
Crazy expensive, but that doesn't even matter. This place is SO GOOD. Try the herbal steam, Swedish massage, and facial. If you have a full day treatment, they will even serve you a fabulous lunch. This is my idea of heaven.
Lots of choices and great food! It has a really cute 'neighborhood' atmosphere in here. You can even substitute one of their great cinnamon rolls for toast!
They have great craft and gift ideas in here. Everything's beautiful. The trouble is, it's also very overpriced. I like to go in here and look around and then go to Michael's to buy the supplies to make these items myself.
Akita is possibly Escondido's best sushi and Japanese food. Order the sushi boat- it's enough food for four and a great deal! You can eat at a table that is on the floor too, which is kind of neat.
It was super hot in here, and very unorganized. There was no help, and some of the fabric was so old that it was faded from the sun. There was fabric and supplies falling all over the floor. I would not go back.
This is one of the last great mom n' pop sandwich shops left in Escondido. My favorite is the eggplant parmesean. They have great deals, and it's a great place to stop in while shopping.
