This is a quaint café on the second level which overlooks the ocean. They're open early so you can get your coffee fix while people watching. I recommend the Eggs Benedict or Chef's Lox and Bagel.

- The view overlooking the Pacific. It just can't get better that this. Restaurant vibe is CA casual - Busy yet very attentive wait staff. Chris was great - clear suggestions about the evening's recommendations without being pushy. - Seafood - fabulous! We started with Chris' appetizer rec. of scallops on crab cakes. To die for. Mixed greens house salad... More

Food is good, not overpriced, but the employees, especially in the bar, make you feel like you are part of their family and right at home so it is a pleasure to stop in for a quick bite or eat in the restaurant with family.

You cannot beat the seafood here. Service is always friendly and good. It gets noisy inside and out, but the view is good as is the food and the staff will happily try to place you in a quieter area if you request it.

The dining area and service are spectacular. The Views are gorgeous. It was misty the night we ate there- and heaters and umbrellas made it comfortable. I ordered a Sword fish and thought it to be dry and the veg od spaghetti squash mix was odd - the flavors didn't meld. My friend ordered a chicken she said it was... More

Exhausted and hungry after finishing a hike up the mountain and around Torrey Pines, we were looking for a place to eat. Drove about 2 miles up the road and came across a small, 3-level shopping center with several restaurants. It is situated on a hillside with a great view of the ocean and underground, validated parking. Didn’t want anything... More

We were visiting family in the area and this is the place they chose while we were in town. They have a lovely outdoor area with views of the ocean. It was a little chilly but they had heaters so it was fine. You can bring your own wine and they have a $20 corkage. I prefer this because I... More

My husband and I had a business dinner here last Saturday. I got the seared ahi tuna ("blue") and my husband got the sugar-spiced salmon. Both were perfectly cooked, and delicious. We had a great table on the deck, and it was a beautiful night, so we had a great view of the sunset. Service was excellent. I highly recommend... More
