Huge Breakfast! Lots of choices

If you are looking for a big plate of food that won't bust your budget, head to the Village Kitchen.

Nice breakfast diner with good food and generous portions. Four of us had breakfast here for under $40 before tip. Place is clean and Windows provide good lighting. No negative comments.

It had been five years since I had the opportunity to dine at the Village Kitchen and Pie Shoppe.. We used to come here for breakfast after Church then walk home.. Since moving to Mexico, one of the few things I miss is a perfectly cooked hamburger.. Oh what a little bit of heaven mine was yesterday. Big and juicy,... More

Stopped in one night for pie and coffee, service was fantastic, sat at counter. Mostly elderly people in here, menu seemed decent. Pie selection when we were there somewhat limited pie was okay, nothing special and seemed overly sweet.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 17 years and have ALWAYS been extremely happy with the food. I'll start with the staff, many new faces here & they were excellent. Friendly & prompt. However, there have been some changes made since we last visited about a month or so ago, and not for the better we are... More

My wife and I recently stayed in Carlsbad and this restaurant was a couple of blocks from our hotel. When we travel we always look for local independent restaurants rather than chains we could eat at anywhere. The Village Kitchen was a perfect choice. Looks like it was probably built in the 50's or 60's although it was recently renovated.... More
