San Elijo Hills in the news on cbs8.com “Cozy community comes alive”

SAN ELIJO HILLS (CBS 8) – In the morning fog, the community of San Elijo Hills raises out of the mist like a mirage.

“People are still confused as to where San Elijo Hills is,” resident Owen said.

Owen runs Dexter’s Deli in the heart of the quaint town square where pampered pooches mack on beef tracheas and custom-designed layer cakes.

“People still call us every day wondering where the heck we are located. They can’t find us, their GPS is sending them to dead ends,” Owen said.

“Pretty close to Carlsbad, right on the edge of San Marcos,” a resident said.

People who have found it tend to love its folksy feel. “It’s very sweet. It’s a very cute town,” a resident said.
