Who’s hungry? Loews Coronado Bay Resort introduces Flavor by Loews Hotels, an innovative food and beverage experience serving up the best of San Diego flavor right within the walls of the hotel. Rolling out nationally this year across the brand, Flavor by Loews Hotels is built on partnerships with artisan food & beverage vendors ranging from bakers to ice cream makers. The Flavor by Loews Hotels program enables guests to experience a taste of the destination without ever having to step off property. Loews Hotels is one of the first hotel brands to embrace local partnerships on a national scale, satisfying guests’ desires to immerse themselves in the destinations — bite by bite and sip by sip. Here are some of our Flavor San Diego partners that you can sink your teeth into during your next trip to Loews Coronado Bay.

Catalina Offshore

Catalina Offshore has been offering the freshest seafood in San Diego for over 40 years so it’s no surprise that their “local catch of the day” is hooking guests in Crown Landing. Catalina Offshore Products Seafood Education and Nutrition Center houses the company’s fish market, which is led by trusted fishmonger Tommy Gomes. In Baja, most fishing is done with hand lines from small Panga boats to save the environment and preserve natural resources. Fresh seafood is purchased directly from reputable fishermen, who are trained in the strict handling procedures required to preserve optimum quality. Each guest who orders the local catch in Crown Landing will know where the fish was caught, the fisherman who caught it, the name of the boat and when it docked.

Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.

Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. creates treats so delicious they won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. Their organic, natural and incredibly delicious sweets are available for guests at Silver Strand Exchange. Owners, Donna and Elaine started their company in early 2007, as two friends who had cooked and baked for as long as they can recall. They use top quality ingredients like local butter, cage-free eggs, organic field lavender, whole wheat flour, flaxseed and wheat germ, farmers market berries, French nut and fruit purees, and single-sourced and sustainable chocolates.

You & Yours Distilling Co.

You & Yours Distilling Co. is led by San Diego’s first female distiller, Laura Johnson. The company’s gin and vodka are served in Cays Lounge and the Silver Strand Exchange Bar and can be delivered to the comforts of guestrooms through in-room dining. The Y&Y Sunday Gin is a highly drinkable modern take on American-style gin with fresh citrus, juniper and an elegant floral finish. Launched in March of 2017, You & Yours Distilling Co. is a full production distillery, tasting room and event space, complete with a world-class cocktail program in downtown San Diego.

Mike Hess Brewing

Mike Hess Brewing produces high-quality, unique and distinctive beers that are served on tap throughout the resort’s bars and restaurants, or guests can enjoy an “Open Mike Can” in their guestroom through in-room dining. Mike Hess, a former financial planner, and his brother Greg created the first production nano-brewery in San Diego. Mike Hess Brewing quickly built a solid reputation for great beers and a unique brewery and tasting room experience. The Mike Hess Brewing Odyssey blog was started in 2009, and has become the de facto go-to manual for opening a nano-brewery globally. It is also the most comprehensive listing of nanos in the country, outside of the Brewer’s Association’s records.
