Snooze to open Sept. 6 at Del Mar Highlands Town Center, support local community partners


By Karen Billing

Snooze, the new breakfast eatery coming to Del Mar Highlands Town Center, has announced community partnerships with San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation and Helen Woodward Animal Center.

As with all of the Snooze restaurants (five in Colorado and one in Hillcrest), 1 percent of total sales go toward local community organizations.

“Our opening partners at Del Mar are three awesome organizations that totally kick butt for good things,” said the restaurant’s general manager John Paul Daniel.

He said the Conservancy was selected as it supports a “vital area for the coast.”

“Many people have volunteered and made a difference in making this land safe again for birds, fish and hey, let’s face it, humans,” Daniel said.

Daniel said Snooze admired Helen Woodward’s no-kill facility that helps so many types of animals and people, and he praised the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation for raising money for needed school programs in art, music, PE, science and technology.

“These people work really hard to make a better community and we couldn’t be happier to be partnered with them,” Daniel said of the foundation.

The restaurant is set to open on Sept. 6. For more information, visit
