The food is very well prepared with ample portions for a good price. The service is always great and quick. Enjoy the turkey eggs benedict as an alternative to the typical eggs benedict, very good portion and tastes great.

They always do a good breakfast but it seemed to be louder in the restaurant than previous visits. But if you want good pancakes, go!

Sat at the counter for breakfast. Friendly, VERY efficient and hard working staff. Good food. Fair prices. Must be popular judging by the lines for a table.

Our trusty Tripadvisor App said we were near one of the best breakfast establishments in Chula Vista. The atmosphere is family friendly and appears to be economical. We were whisked to a freshly cleaned table in a nice area. We perused the menu to decide on what sounded the best. By the time the waitress came to ask for drinks... More

Aunt Emma's had been out favorite breakfast place for 27 years. The variety of items on the menu is good for everyone. Pancakes are awesome. And they have real butter. The eggs are always done to a turn. Service is fantastic. Prices can't be beat.

The place was packed when we arrived. Our order was taken promptly and the waitress brought some food for the two young boys right away, per our request. The rest of the food took longer, but was very good. We had a lot of pancakes for carry out.

This place is ALWAYS FULL. The wait is worth it one hundred percent. I have always loved the food at this place. It is satisfying, as well as delicious. The prices are pretty good too.

Great eggs, pancakes and meats. Though they have a variety of items on the menu you should definitely try the pancakes. They are some of the best I have eaten. Omlets are large and flavorful. You go to Aunt Emma's be sure to carry a big appetite.
