Went to Crown Bistro for breakfast with friends. We all had a variety of food with nothing but fantastic responses from all. Banana Foster French Toast, fresh strawberry waffle just to name a couple of our favorites. We will be back when headed back to Coronado.

Head and shoulders above anything on the island. The combination of a solid menu, excellent preparation and presentation, generous portions and extremely reasonable prices just does not exist elsewhere on Coronado. Do yourself a favor and walk the extra 4 blocks to try this amazing bistro.

Had a cousin in San Diego tell me about this restaurant. We would have never tried this bistro without the recommendation and that would have been a misfortune. This place is great. Very European, six tables inside and five tables outside with a very small staff. Our first night there I had Lamb shank and the meat fell off the... More

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.

Wow. We happened upon this jewel recently with our family of four, including two children, one who is ten and a tween. 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.
