Sam’s Kitchen was founded by San Diego native Sam Garcia in 2011 to provide home and professional catering in the North County area. Sam has been in the food/catering business since the year 2000 and she’s catered for weddings, local companies including renowned video game studios like High Moon Studios, and other corporate clients. Along the way she’s developed a loyal following of customers who order from her home catering service each week.  Sam has been catering out of a professional home kitchen for the past 10 years and now is bringing her expertise to her first restaurant.  Sam loves to cook every kind of food - from Mexican, Greek, Italian, South American, and many others, but she has a special passion for creating her unique take on Mexican food.

Sam started her career in the year 2000 in this very deli when it was named Pickles Cafe & Deli and she’s now following her dream by taking the reins to bring her own take on Mexican American comfort food to Carlsbad.
