Excellent! A large group of us showed up unannounced for breakfast. The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. I could not believe how fast they were at getting all of our orders!

Delicious breakfasts. Fantastic omelets, home fries, biscuits, pancakes, etc. on weekends be prepared to wait, but it is worth it.

We were en route from Los Angeles to San Diego. I looked on Trip Advisor to find somewhere suitable in the area that we'd decided to break up the journey for breakfast and this ticked all the boxes. The portions were very generous and my husband said his corned beef hash was some of the best he'd ever tasted. Service... More

Best eggs I've ever had at a restaurant! Biscuits and gravy were to die for! Small and quaint with great service! Will definitely be back on our next trip!

We'd been to Don's years ago & I remembered it as great. This time we were super disappointed. Our breakfast was dry - sausage over cooked & biscuits with gravy ho hum. Not very welcoming from the wait staff-1 waitress for breakfast? ? As we were eating, they were unloading frozen oj &Bisquick, etc, from costco - so much for... More

"Good food", but nothing to rave about. Great place for those with pets. Outside seating was full of friendly folks with dogs. Very nice staff, quick service.

I don't know why this place gets such rave reviews. It is very small and very busy so we ended up sitting at the counter. That was okay except that we had a view into the kitchen. Wonder how they get an A rating by board of health. We saw a dirty floor with a bag of Krustez pancake mix... More

Love the big portions and the coffee cake is simply amazing! Omelettes are light, fluffy and a meal in itself...loved this place so much, we came here multiple times during our week out here.

Don's is a great little discovery. My husband and I spent a few days in the area. We were actually headed to the Danish Bakery (I'll review it later), but it was closed. Since Don's was in the same parking lot we decided to give it a try. It was a crowded Sunday morning, but the staff greeted us with... More

My husband and three kids ate here one morning and sat outside as it was a beautiful day. I thought 2.75 for an ice tea was kind of high, and two small pieces of sausage for one of my sons was 4.25. I had a very good omelet that was so huge I was able to take half home and... More
