Grabbed lattes and breakfast sandwiches to go. Efficient service and tasty coffee. And kids loved picking their own doughnut from the glass cases right at kids height at the takeout window.

Although we only had breakfast there my family loved it so much we went 3 days in a row. Recommend the hash browns well done as they taste more like little potato chips vs. the usual potato cubes. Really good. Yogurt bowl was big and satisfying with granola, honey & banana and the the omelets also big & fluffy. Also... More

This diner is conveniently located in the middle of orange avenue. There are bike racks right next to it to park your bike. Their sandwiches are delicious. If you don't feel like eating a meal, I highly recommend ordering a pie or one of the shakes.

Looking for some good Mexican food in Coronado, we tried Clayton's Mexican takeout window a few steps from the entrance of its popular diner. The food was disappointing: greasy and lacking flavor. The chicken burrito was made with good quality chicken meat but seemed to lack any other seasoning; with just a bit of cheese, it was like eating a... More

Go to Clayton's! We were in Nado for a week over July 4th and went to Clayton's a couple of times for breakfast. The wait was long, but not unbearable and it was worth it. Both times our family of five were put way in the back by the kitchen which was really warm but it encouraged us to get... More

Diner food with a nostalgic atmosphere! Servers are very friendly and this place is busy most of the time. Pies are delicious!

This is definitely a fun place worth checking out. We went there for lunch and I would not recommend it for lunch fare. They do serve all day breakfast, which now we regret we did not choose since it looked more appetizing. We ordered the chicken sandwich with grilled mushrooms and onions and cheese; the bacon cheeseburger; and a BLT... More

We had breakfast from Clayton's our last day on Coronado Island. The internet reviews were on spot! Veggie omelet with hash browns, chocolate chai tea latte, soy latte, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, eggs, and sausage was on the order for our gruop. Everything was tasty and great value for the price. Definitely the spot to be at for... More

I had heard about this place before arriving in San Diego. I had heard that it had a great menu and stellar service. We decided to try it out the first morning we were in Coronado. I must say that from the outside it didn't appear to be special. Once we went inside the atmosphere was great. All the staff... More
