This is a pleasant little cafe for breakfast and lunch. The selections are plentiful and the pastries are tasty. Our only complaint is that they are not willing to do half orders of larger items such as eggs benedict. I don't care if a place charge me the same amount for a half order. The food waste is something I... More

Not finding the baked goods we were seeking at either the market or Panera, we stumbled into Villa Nueva on Orange Avenue. The smells were wonderful, as were the baked goods. We each got a muffin for our breakfast and - wow! - was it ever good. There is inside and outside seating, albeit the outside seating is right on... More

Husband and I had breakfast here yesterday. We each had a croissant sandwich. They are huge! And they come with potatoes so you're getting plenty of food. While I can't say it was worth writing home about, it was a nice little place to have breakfast. I also took a cheese Danish for later which was good, but not as... More

We were visiting Coronado as tourists. I prefer to try 'local' places and this seemed to fit the bill. We were there between breakfast and lunch, so the place was uncrowded. Service was quick. We both ordered the same sandwich and it was very good. I had a bran muffin for later and wife had chocolate chip cookies. Very pleasant... More

Stopped by one afternoon and saw the huge muffins in the glass case. Went back the next morning to buy a couple for me and my daughter and friends. The woman behind the counter was very pleasant and helpful. I got a pumpkin muffin and an apple cinnamon muffin. Neither were great. I tried to find the pumpkin flavor in... More

Bar none the best chilaquiles on the planet. My wife had the vegetable egg white omelet and we shared an apple maple muffin. Everything was outstanding. Ambiance and service was also perfect. Enjoy!!!

If you want something a step above Starbucks or Panera bread, which are right next door head to this place for breakfast. Large portions and good muffins. Sit outside and people watch. Enjoy.

Environment was nice. Pasta salad was delicious. Fruit was great. The chicken salad tasted horrible. We ended up scraping the chicken salad OFF the croissants and ate them plain. Not sure we would go back.

If there is a better place to have breakfast in Coronado, then I have yet to find it. This place has great omlettes and world class muffins among other offerings. What else can you ask for? I have never eaten anything but breakfast here, so I can't comment on their lunch options. Get here relatively early in the morning, before... More
