Great pastries

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!

Stopped by to enjoy some coffee and pastries. Sat outside and enjoyed the patio with the fire pits. Nice peaceful place.

Worth the bit of a wait that there was at times. Excellent quality and inexpensive. Fresh and healthy.

Good food, but nothing special. Super convenient and tasty baked goods. There's much better coffee in multiple other locations throughout Carlsbad Village.

Across the street from Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, very handy for smoothies and breakfast. Quality of food better than some of the reviews I saw.

Had heard about this restaurant from others so we decided to give it a try. Easy to find, walk in read the overhead menu, order then go sit and wait. We picked a table outside as the sun was out but it was windy.................I ordered the ham quiche and found it very tasty and well presented. Hubby had a burger,... More

Strawberry cream cheese stuffed French toast! Outdoor (and in) dining with large umbrellas and fire pits. The French toast was "melt-in-your-mouth" good, and the omelets looked great. This was recommended to us by a member of Sky's the Limit crew. Thank you!

What a wonderful café! We enjoyed our breakfast so much that we took lunch to go. We had an egg/swiss/bacon on a fresh croissant and an omelette which was absolutely stuffed with mushrooms and ham AND had a beautiful assortment of fresh fruit (enough for both of us)on the side. We were ready for a long day on our bikes.... More

Located directly across the street from where we lodged, a perfect little place for delicious breakfast and coffee. I had the spicy sausage sandwich on Texas toast, and my husband had the spinach and egg sandwich on croissant .... so good, friendly service, what more could you want?
