Great food, great people. Busy busy busy on a Sat morning but I was in and out in less than 20 mins. Bilingual staff, clean, always smiling. Obviously happy to be there. A good family restaurant.

Have had Breakfast here many, many times over the past 20 years. The service & food are excellent. Keep in mind, Aunt Emma's only serves Breakfast & Lunch.

Loved the portion sizes holy crap you can share. I am very basic I get the eggs and hashbrowns, but my friends got the pancakes and waffle meals they only each ate half.

Good breakfast!!! Fast service even if you have to wait in line😊 Good prices. It is a little noisy but I guess is normal for a breakfast place. A good place to have a family breakfast

Best crepes in southbay San Diego. Yes the wait is long, yes it is slightly noisy, but the food is great. The crepes are fresh. The dough in the pancakes is fresh. The food is proportionate and delicious. It's so worth the wait!!! The service was attentive, and the staff was fast. They turn tables faster than any fast food.... More

Their breakfast is just average. Pancakes are o.k. but they don't warrant the high prices or the waiting lines. There's a Denny's a few doors done but people line up for Aunt Emma's. Must be locals supporting this mom and pop business.

Only opened for breakfast or lunch, but the meals are fantastic! Breakfast is all day and plentiful. There are daily specials that are filling and great for small or large families. Friendly staff, large selection. Aunt Emma's expanded to a second restaurant on National City Blvd, in National City...took over the former Keith's restaurant. Great lunch menus, too, at both...

Had blueberry pancakes and could not come within half a foot of eating them all. Not the best I have ever had but you will not leave hungry.

In addition to being a traditional restaurant with local history, the breakfast is excellent. Even so pancakes are their specialty and are very good. They also have great omelets an other combinations, like the Montecristo or eggs with chorizo. Their club is also great with a great potato salad. Highly recommend this restaurant.
