Good hot breakfast

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.

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.

I was dying for California, fresh squeezed orange juice. I wasn't impressed with it here as I am with other places in California.

I'm giving this restaurant a 4/5 for the good prices of their entrees. I don't like all the items on the menu (yes, I've tried everything throughout the past 10 years) but the reason we come back is because of the very affordable entrees, good for sharing. This place is very noisy, all day, everyday because it is always packed.

This is one of the places we frequent as a family on Sunday for a late breakfast practically wearing pajamas. The place is always packed so I get down and put my name on the list then I go back to the car and we sit there about 20 min, on our phones, ipads, etc. By the time we walk... More
