Good pick!

We really enjoyed this breakfast. The restaurant was larger than we expected, but still quiet and personal service. My husband had the Borders Benedict. It started with corn cake then the egg and carne asada on top and green sauce. It was excellent and a good sized portion. I asked for a diet... read more

If you are staying at La Costa you can walk, or drive to this restaurant. I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast for a fair price. I wish we have discovered this place sooner.

Perhaps we should have chosen one of their specialty items, but I chose the "Mom" omelet" and my husband ordered the biscuits and gravy. The Mom omelet was basically onions, peppers and mushrooms covered by eggs. It wasn't wrapped in eggs as expected. No cheese and served with toast and potatoes. The potatoes were excellent. My husband's biscuits and gravy... More

The service was great. Lots of choices. Nice selection of hot tea. Sweet potato pancakes were good. I asked for butter instead of whipped cream which was not a problem. My husband had eggs benedict served with hash browns. The potatoes were crisp and brown on both sides and the eggs were good.

Our first time going to this restaurant. We wish there was one near home. The portions were generous and all the servers and table bussers were very attentive. We would definitely go back!

A fantastic variety of breakfast dishes. The Tiki French toast was incredible. The tomato basil soup was great too. We are definitely going back!

As the name suggests, this is a great place for breakfast. Good food at a good price. Very good all round choices ... Pancakes, benedicts, and traditional omelettes and eggs. Service was good, not exceptional. Coffee was very good, I had latte, my wife had Americano. We have been to three different Broken Yolks in the SoCal area, all consistently... More
