I came here about 5 years ago, this time returned with our with kids (9 and 11). The key is to arrive early (before 8am), the place is small, very small, so it gets packed fast. It's a modest place, servers are attentive, food is served fast, taste is really good and portions are huge. The specialties are pancakes, waffles,... More

The Denver omelet and potatoes overflowed the big plate. I was glad for the choice between sautéed and raw vegetables. I chose raw. The crisp veggies helped to balance all of the cheese (which reminded me of Velveeta?)... cheese overwhelmed the fluffy egg. Service was fast and cheery. But the woman at the cash register didn't look at me or... More

I visited this place on a Monday morning at 10:30 am and the place was packed as if it was a weekend (evidently no one in Chula Vista has to be to work until noon). This is the real deal if you like local "good eats". Of the four items we ordered, none were finished and it wasn't that we... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. We really enjoyed it. The food came fast, hot, and delicious. I had the corned beef hash and eggs. It was so fresh! The potatoes that came along with the dish were amazing. And the "bread" choice was pancakes, English muffin, toast, etc. I chose the pancakes to maximize my dollars. They... More

My friend and I stopped by this place on our way back home from a race and boy am I glad we did! It's a small restaurant packed to the gills with tables and people and for good reason - the food and the service was beyond exceptional. We visited on a Saturday morning around. 9:45am and only had to... More

My husband and I ate breakfast here this morning. You can't go wrong ordering an omelet. I ordered the Club omelet and my husband order the veggie omelet. Omelets come with three pancakes and another side. Everything was delicious! There was way too much food! If we have the opportunity to return we'll split an order. The wait staff was... More

This breakfast place is a family tradition. We've been going to the H st Family house for over 30 years. We split an omelet and all that goes with it. It's too scrumptious!

Just off west of 805; in National City. ( also, original first is on Broadway in downtown Chula Vista, CA.) Great food and portions are large. Specials of the day for breakfast and lunch and now dinner. Staff is friendly and helpful.
