A lake in Tilden Park that offers a beach, swimming, and a snack bar.

This is the latter-day snack bar in the post-Food-Network world. Festooned with blow-up beach gear, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head toys, and vintage outdoor photographs, Lake Anza Beach Club stands mere blocks from the Gourmet Ghetto, albeit vertical blocks. So from its two takeout-only windows — one inside the lake’s paid zone and the other outside, adjoining the parking lot — come chili, sandwiches, and coffee drinks using locally sourced and in many cases sustainably grown ingredients. Also here are snack-bar standards such as nachos, hot dogs, and soft ice cream. Head honchos here are Daniel Bergerac and Eddie Lundeen, who created Point Isabel’s popular Mudpuppy’s Tub & Scrub and Sit and Stay Cafe.
