I like SoCal flavors, and PDM did a great job of melding together classic breakfast dishes with unique local flavors.

There's plenty of healthy choices, as well as terrific pastries for something that's more grab-and-go. The coffee was also outstanding,... More

Pain du Monde is more than a good coffee shop. It is consistently good for great and healthy breakfasts and lunches. Pesto and eggs, omelettes, breakfast burritos and oatmeal are always good, and the sandwiches and wraps are delicious. Seating is indoors and outdoors, and they will bring your food and bus your table. Very convenient to both the Ritz... More

We (me, my wife, and kids aged 9 and 11) stopped by here for lunch on our way from LA to San Diego. My veggie sandwich on a croissant was simple and excellent - the spinach salad that came with it was dressed with a light but tasty French vinaigrette. My wife liked it too. My kids both had a...

This was a horrible experience. The staff were rude and the food was terrible. I liked the location close to the beach and our hotel but disliked everything that we ordered, the high prices and rude staff.

I had the Pesto and Eggs and it was excellent. Everything on the menu looked great. They have a very nice outside area to sit outside and enjoy the sun while you eat. Highly recommend. It is right mix of low key, good service, great vibe and excellent food.

Huge portion had to split it with my hubby. Made fresh on order! Outside that pretty average coffee cafe with outdoor and indoor seating.
