Gaffney's Wine Bar

~Enjoying Thursday night and the wine tasting selection~
Gaffney's has found a new home!!!!! Well its not totally new but it was "news" to me. Gaffney's was in the Encinitas Lumberyard for years. A couple of years ago we were there and Robert mentioned they were moving. I was flabbergasted. What? NO! We love Gaffney's! He said they were looking for a new location and everything would all work out. I never did find out where they moved to. :-(
Two years later Im out for a girls night of holiday shopping and dinner with Keir 
and I see the "Gaffney's" sign. YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
They are located in the Kohl's shopping center at the corner of Encinitas Blvd and El Camino Real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Such a nice little spot. Very cozy and quaint. Robert and Donna are still there every night and make you feel as if you are enjoying a glass of wine at home. They know everything about wine and more than I could have ever imagined about cheese as well.
The evenings start early at Gaffney's. They have a fantastic menu and whats unique about this wine bar is they have kept it very homey. No fancy gold plated menus and no stuffy crowds. Its a real wine bar with hand written menus that change daily. Robert has been asked a million times why dont you have your menus printed? He simply replies, "Because I dont want to thats why". ha ha
I love it!
Donna makes the salads and the cheese selection they carry are all from local farmers. Robert and Donna purchase the cheese each week so its always on hand at the bar. Its nice to taste the cheeses and then be able to purchase a block to take home.
So fun!
