Best pancakes in Coronado and a little patio to sit outside- and enjoy your breakfast in the beautiful California weather-can't beat that!

We stayed in Coronado 5 days and had breakfast here 4 mornings. The pancakes, sour dough toast with homemade preserves are excellent, as well has the French toast. My husbands favorite meal of our entire trip was the eggs Benedict with crab. We ate dinner here one night has well and enjoyed a New York strip and pork chops cooked... More

We stopped in to visit the Bistro because we were curious about the property. The restaurant is cozy and within an easy walk of the main shopping area. The bulk of the dinner entrees were $20 or less; the food was very well prepared. The restaurant is dog-friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to come here again!

We visited Coronado for the first time recently and my daughter selected Crown Bistro for breakfast. One of the favorite meals of the trip. The Lemon Poppyseed pancakes were absolutely delicious. I think my daughter literally licked the plate the sauce was that good. She was concerned that 6 silver dollar pancakes would be too small a serving, my son... More

Sit outdoors if you can. Very small place next to cottage lodge. Food was excellent. Large portions. Service was good. Prompt delivery which was great since we were starving! Next time I have to try the French Toast. It looks amazing!

This was the last place we ate on our CA trip recommended by our hotel as we like to not repeat where we eat on trips. The breakfast was great and the place is nice and cozy if we return to Coronado we would but this on the list for a repeat.

The food was delicious, but the service was very slow. We don't fault the waiter though. It looked as if he was the only one there to wait tables, and even though there was only about nine tables inside (the restaurant is really small and is part of the inn), there were a lot of tables outside, which he was...

We're familiar with the Crown Bistro for wonderful breakfasts and the majority of Tripadvisor reviews reinforce their strength. We had not been here for dinner in a long time (although it used to be one of my Dad's favorites). There were 6 of us. Our table was ready and the food was delicious. We had a coupon that allowed us... More

Crown City Inn & Bistro is geographically and perhaps tastefully separated from the pack on Orange St (Full Disclosure - not that I have dined at all the restaurants on Orange St) It offers a small amount of seating and at an 8:30 PM seating we received much attention and very good food! Enjoy!
