Like most places in la Jolla........

Like most places in La Jolla this one is fantastic. La Jolla is the place to go for cute bistro style restaurants that serve great food and scenic views. Cody's was our backup plan as the original restaurant could not take the numbers we had that Sunday morning. This was to be to our advantage... read more

Very friendly service, great view of the ocean, delicious calamari and large Chicken Grilled Sandy we both loved and shared! Staff was very friendly and it was a great first place to eat after getting in to La Jolla

Great outdoor breakfast place. Has a great La Jolla beachy vibe. Actually it's great any time of day. We live here and this is one of the stops for breakfast when we have company. Waffles are great, also try the BLT.

Hipster, cool, friendly, good service. Excellent lunch spot, fresh food. Lovely view from the patio area. Only down side is the long wait for a table due to its popularity.

This is a nice place to go for breakfast or brunch. Our service was kind of slow, the waitor was not very friendly or talkative but over all we enjoyed it. The wait for a table that is outside facing the water was worth it for us personally.

It was hard to choose from the large menu but we both ordered omelettes which were huge and served on potatoes. We had a great view outside of the ocean as we ate. Service was fast and efficient.

The restaurant has a nice of the ocean. The outdoor seating was lovely. The food was not memorable, I had the fish and chips and it was not real tasty. My husband had the BLT. It was good and certainly was a big sandwich.

After our trip to San Diego and eating at Cody's, it was on the top of our list of MUST DO items. The place is adorable and the view from the deck is wonderful, even on a cloudy morning. The staff if gracious, BUT the lobster roll is what I went for and will go again for. From the looks... More

Do not know why people is is crazy about this place. Maybe because a little hipster. people waiting on the sidewalk for a table all the time. Food was not the memorable. We had the chicken sandwich. It was so so. Bread was greasy and you get a really small piece of chicken breast. Chopped vegetable salad seem fresh, but... More
