Very quant and rustic..CLEAN! The food is just as good as the service..FANTASTIC! We went for breakfast and sat at the counter... Our waitress was on the ball. Food was fresh and hot. She kept our coffee and water filled and checked on us often. Loved it and highly recommend.

Went here for breakfast based on all the great reviews and a past experience many years ago. The place was very hot and humid from the kitchen with windows and door open. Lots of flies all over. Had to leave before ordering because of the uncomfortable atmosphere. Not like we remembered. Went across the street to Panera Bread and had... More

Really cute place with great food! Seven of us stopped in to grab a bite. Not aware of our food choices we almost ate at Panera Bread, across the street, when I happened to notice this little gem. Most of us were in the mood for a juice burger, fries & a shake so this fit the bill. Not having... More

This little gem was a great place to meet up for breakfast with a new friend. We got there late morning on a Friday and had to wait about fifteen minutes, but it was worth the wait.

My husband and I are always looking for the best American breakfast places. This is one of the best! The restaurant is a tiny little place with a handful of booths and most of the seating is around the bar. The atmosphere is fun and friendly. The waitresses were busy but friendly and our cups never ran empty. I'm a... More

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
