Although it was dinner time, I had a terrific Greek omelet. Good service, a good selection of items, comfortable booths.

We had a very nice breakfast with large servings. Service was fine. We liked Diner 101 (across the street more) for breakfast --- but Encinitas Cafe was also very nice and we recommend either.

Easy cafe to get in and out of. Family friendly. Indoor and outdoor seating. Variety of food. Banana bread was awesome. Waitress was awesome as well. I wish I could remember her name.

Love this place! Good home cooking. Nice friendly people. Formerly, Dorothy's Coffee Mill. Locals have been going there for decades, that should say something.

Ate breakfast here 3 times in 3 days, while staying in the area. Very nice people, decent prices, goodly amount of food. Can't be beat for a local family diner in the Encinitas area.

Love the ambiance of the local diner that is owned by a family. Grandpa, mom, and son... My mom and I always go on Saturday for their ham and bean soup with saltine crackers.
