Fresh and fun food on a pet friendly patio, just what we look for on while on vacation. Excellent coffee and pastries that will make you hate yourself as well as huge omelets. Haven't done lunch or dinner there but bet they're good too. Not always the fastest service but worth the wait.

Very busy place, but wait for our food was acceptable. I had a mushroom and swiss omelets and it was ok, very little flavor, I had to heavily salt and pepper it. Hash browns were very blah salt and pepper did not even help it. For was very good.

Thoughts on in general: A cacophony and array of filthy food and filthy people.....This restaurant is the devil's work:) It is said the way to judge a chef is the way he cooks the seemingly simple task of cooking an egg. To make a long review short: they fail! I have no way of knowing but, i would say the... More

We had to be up early every morning in Carlsbad and had a hard time finding a good place for breakfast. This seemed like most unlikely place for breakfast to us but were we surprised. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was fresh and delicious. We will be sure to stop in again on our next visit to... More

Great place to meet the locals over french coffee and pastries made fresh every day. A full breakfast is available and made to order while you wait by the fire pit outside. Delivered right to you with a smile. Just a few steps from the ocean so excercise is easy after.

this is a bakery/café. the baker was making cinnamon rolls and coussants while we were having breakfast and the whole neighborhood smelled wonderful. we found locals and the police eating there, so assumed it was good.....and it was.

My family had breakfast here two mornings in a row, as well as dessert while staying across the street at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort. The first morning, I ordered Coconut Custard Stuffed French toast and was disappointed to find out they were out of coconut. I got banana instead and it was absolutely delicious (coconut must be amazing!). I... More

We stopped in for a dessert to go on our way back to the hotel. We picked about 6 different pastries to share, but only spent about $8. That's a great deal. They were all yummy.

we enjoyed breakfast on the patio. Omelettes were delicious and the fruit was outstanding...no mushy melon and grapes!
