Excellent portions, great staff, right on hwy 101, parking can be tricky. We walk here for breakfast and enjoy eating outside!

Fortunately, the Hwy 101 corridor that winds through many of our southern California beach towns has attracted many cozy dining spots. St. Germains in Encinitas falls easily under that description and has been on our list of favorite breakfast spots for some time. Having dined there on many occasions we can recommend it without reservation since our breakfast or lunch... More

Parking in this area is horrible. Trying to get together a party of five in only two cars required the patience of Job. I can't imagine larger parties wanting to come here if only for that reason. I do understand that parking is not the restaurants specific fault, but a widespread problem throughout Encinitas, so unless you're willing to park... More

I have driven past this place tons of times on the weekends but I never stopped by because they usually are packed with people. Sometimes I have even seen lines. After eating there now I know why! The place is REALLY good. The service is great and so is the food. They have tables inside but they also have a... More

Driving to LA on 101 and decided to stop to eat...nice, friendly bistro with great food and service. I would recommend as it is a nice relaxed place to have a coffee and enjoy life...would recommend the jogger with poached eggs and fantastic bacon!

This is the go to place for the Pacific Photography Society Meet Up Group about once a month. There is usually a fairly large group and we have been accomodated on the patio as well as inside. The breakfast and lunches are great and the service is amazing for such a large group.

Well run and nice wait staff. We very much enjoyed our meal. Ambiance isn't the best, but it's still worth a visit.

I've only stopped here for a morning pastry and iced tea, so my comments are limited to this narrow exposure. That said, St. Germain's looks better than what it delivers. Not bad, just on par with the neighboring Starbucks, but the atmosphere is better. Perhaps the full breakfasts and lunches are better.

Ate lunch at St. Germains on Saturday and it was a lovely experience. We ended up order the b.c.a. Kobe burger -- mine with sweet potato fries and my husband had the garlic fries. The burgers were lean and tasty.The bacon was crisp and the sliced avocado added a fresh, summery taste. They had a very nice patio area along... More
