Real Good Mexican Breakfasts

a very small place in Coronado Island's main street. You can seat and watch people walkin in the street while you eat. I personally liked the Chilaquiles and their Capuccino. Leave some [lace for their backery.

Visiting Coronado and found this little sidewalk cafe while walking around town. The food was really good and plentiful. The muffins are fabulous! My friend and I ate there for breakfast 3 days in a row - driving from another city every morning to enjoy the outside seating area and the very fresh and tasty food. My favorite - the... More

This is a pleasant little cafe for breakfast and lunch. Nicely situated with outdoor sitting. I tried a veggie sandwich which was something great. Only one thing the person who was taking orders asked for tip upfront which I felt was bit weird. How can I tip you without first experiencing the food and your service?

Zero complaints!! We had breakfast around 7:30 am on a holiday Friday. It started to get crowded around 9, but still tables available/no waiting. You order and they give you a number then bring your food when it's ready. I'm good with that...it's a streetside cafe, not fine dining. Yes, I agree with a few others that the girl taking... More

Omelets, pastries and other breakfast dishes served on the main street in Coronado make this a wonderful breakfast and brunch stop. The omelets are wonderful (and big). This was a place we stumbled onto during the morning and were glad we found Villanueva.

The crab cake was shared as an appetizer, very good. My husband ordered a specialty drink and it was too strong so he had to send it back and ask for ginger ale to be added, it still tasted terrible. I had the Veal and it was very good but I only ate 1/2 of it. They took my plate... More

The lunches are great and the tacos on Friday nights are by far the best in town! Wait till it's time for the sweets and wow, their muffins and cookies are amazing!

I just love this place! There is always a great feel to the space here. Flaky croissants and excellent chicken and tuna salad. The meals are large so sharing is a great option. A fun place for coffee and to just sit outside and people watch. Huge muffins also. We shared the coconut one, soft and yummy.

More to choose from than Starbucks as far as food goes, and different sandwich and pastry selections than those at Panera, but in no way is this place better than either Panera or Starbucks when it comes to value for the dollar, food quality or service. The girl taking orders would listen and nod when we spoke, but spoke only... More
