Don's Country Kitchen is a popular restaurant in Carlsbad that is a local favorite so my husband and I tried it for breakfast. Breakfast is usually the same at every restaurant. Two eggs over easy, hashbrowns, and sour bread toast. I sometimes like to change up to pancakes and decided to get a short stack. Pancakes are one of my... More

We tried several times to get into this establishment but line-up was impossibly long. We finally got in and found out that there are 8 or 9 tables and about 10 mushroom seats at the counter and 4 or 5 tables on the sidewalk. So there isn't a lot of capacity in there. Service is fast and friendly. Tables are... More

Stopped by for a late breakfast, and had the chilaquiles (sp?) at the counter. Delicious! Fresh, homemade, and just the right amount of food. Great cup of coffee too. Will happily go back the next time I'm in Carlsbad.

Biscuits were more like stale rolls and sausage gravy had no sausage. My husband ordered omelet and it was fine but I would not go back

Saturday am breakfast, expected a wait. food was good enough, waitess gave me wrong order, but took care of it quickly. $51 for 5, when one ordered only a sandwich for $4.95. but it is yuppie, so what do you expect. better than Denny's but what isn't, typical beach diner, more trend than taste. why can't so Cal get it...

Old school charm but worth a stop. The place isn't fancy but the service/friendliness of the staff comes as quick as you come through the door. Good coffee. Biscuits & Gravy really are that good! We also had a blueberry pancake that was really good. We'll be back!

We loved Don's - went because of Trip Advisor reviews and were very happy with the service and quality of food. The Carlsbad Benedict with avocado was my favorite! Ham steak w/breakfast was good too, not to mention homemade salsa!

Do try Don's if you're in the mood for a huge morning omelet. They come with your choice of bacon, cheese, ham, etc., and a super-sized portion of home fries or hash browns with biscuits or toast. The omelets are the three-egg variety and are done to perfection. Your choice of indoor or outdoor seating (right along the sidewalk). It... More
