Allmine is a cozy pizzeria in Oceanside with great pies like the mushroom- and spicy merguez-topped It’s a Trip and small plates like savory cheese puffs and stuffed roasted squash with couscous. The place has brick walls, hanging plants throughout, and a few tables on its tight outdoor patio, but the best spot in the house is at the tiny bar with cushy stools. Spend some time chatting with the owner who’ll give you recommendations ranging from natural wines from Texas Hill Country, bubbles from Portugal, and a great selection of local draft and canned beers. Go for an early dinner before a night out in downtown Oceanside, which should include a stop at The Space Pad, a speakeasy in Kilowatt Brewery, and a fancy cocktail at Frankie’s.
