Excellent service and delicious food

I loved the atmosphere and the quietness and coziness of the restaurant. Our waiter was top of the line and the whole experience was amazing. Will definitely recommend.

We used our good manners, but the staff was so welcoming, they could hsndle younger kids as well. The food is wonderful and local. My daughter had tortellini, my son a pork chop, my husband had linguini and... More

My family was visiting the island and stopped at this bistro because it was nearby. We were so pleased that we went back the next day. The food was wonderful, especially the pork with blueberry sauce. We were tempted to lick our plates! My kids liked the bacon wrapped shrimp. It is small, but we will go back whenever we... More

Nice outside patio for breakfast with a good menu to choose from. Fresh preserves on the table for toast or muffins. Did not visit for dinner but looked inviting.

Great spot for breakfast! The mimosas are divine too... a little grenadine makes them extra special. I had the Italian Joe Scramble and my friend had the Crab Benedict. Both were so delicious and generous in portions. The tables all had different jars of homemade jam that were super yummy. I tried Strawberry and Raspberry :-) Definitely worth a visit... More

The Crown City Bistro is a pleasant surprise. I had a daily special of a Blue Cheese stuffed NY steak and was blown away. We had a party of four and everyone raved about their food.

We were staying at the Coronado Island Marriott but looking for a new site for breakfast. Crown City Inn was it. Excellent food. Delightful service. Walking distance from the Marriott.

Hands down, this is a great place to get a truly delicious breakfast. Many unique items on the menu and all the essentials done well (i.e-coffee, fresh juices, etc.). One word of advice - make ample time for your meal! The bistro is small and while the service is attentive, it takes longer than you would expect.

The Bistro is the best kept secret in Coronado. We ate several meals here during our 8 day stay and we cleaned our plates each meal. Good value too!
