Roger’s Market at 64 Degrees, Revelle College, UCSD
9500 Gilman Dr.
La Jolla, CA 92093
see below for market map and parking information
This month’s adventure took us to Revelle College (part of UCSD) for a look at their residential dining experience, 64 Degrees. The name comes from the average water temperature in La Jolla, the founding year of Revelle College, and supposedly the height of Roger Revelle, the college founder.
The project has a variety of restaurant options, dining spaces, a market, and more. We got our coffee at Roger’s Market, which is part of 64 Degrees, and enjoyed sitting outside by the fire on chairs that were a modern take on Adirondack chairs. It’s a fascinating visual experience with its modern, clean lines and various spaces to sit, eat, drink, or just people watch. There’s even a small meditation room to tuck away for a quiet space.
We went on Sunday as parking is free and plentiful at the La Jolla Playhouse on the weekends. Because the area is near La Jolla Playhouse it can provide playgoers with alternative dining or coffee options before or after their theatre visit. Roger’s Market is open until 1:00am, unless the school is on break. Hours for Roger’s Market are listed here: https://hdh.ucsd.edu/DiningMenus/hours.aspx?i=m#marketContentArea
I’ve already signed up for an Urban Safaris walking tour with Patty to learn more about the UCSD campus: http://walkingtoursofsandiego.com/
Next on my personal to-do list is a visit to the Audrey Cafe (as in Audrey Geisel, wife of Dr. Seuss) on the 2nd floor of the UCSD Library: https://libraries.ucsd.edu/visit/audreys-cafe/index.html
It almost . . . just almost . . . makes me want to go to college again!

It’s also an easy bike ride from Pacific Beach, University City, or La Jolla.
There are six colleges within UCSD, each with their own market and dining hall. A brief explanation of the six colleges is here: http://provost.ucsd.edu/colleges/. These college dining options are open to the public, not just for students. There is also food and coffee at Price Center, the campus student center: http://universitycenters.ucsd.edu/
