Be prepared to share. Also you probably won't have to add salt to your breakfast. The extremely long lines will give you a hint on how popular this Chula Vista institution is. The food is good, service is friendly, plus it's extremely kid-friendly Parking can be problematic, but there is street parking and also the hotel behind Aunt Emma's allows... More

Just an old coffee shop next to the freeway but has always served a good breakfast. Easy place to meet for grub. Always packed. They have a couple of daily breakfast specials for under five bucks. I've been eating there for over 40 years. That is all

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.
