We stayed in La Jolla for a month and had the pleasure of having breakfast at Cody´s 5 times or so during our stay. The service is efficient and polite, but could be friendlier. The guy with curls and a lighter hair color were very friendly however! We tried a lot of the items on the menu and nothing disappointed,... More

We were in a hurry and our waiter was awesome. He got our orders taken, our food out, and our check done all in the time we needed. The food was good. We had the fish and chips, crab and corn bread bowl, and fish tacos. All was tasty.

Recommended to go here from the Desert Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs and it didn't disappoint. Our host Tyler was first class and made a number of great recommendations. The Fish & chips are truly fantastic! Together with one of the best views in La Jolla I'm surprised it's not the number one restaurant in La Jolla on TA, it... More

Must do for brunch... the food is delicious, the outdoor seating is awesome... No better way to enjoy the lovely climate in SD than with a wonderful meal. The Fish and Chips are delicious, while the french toast and crab benedict are simply amazing!

Everything here was fresh and just really well done, I can't wait to go back! The sauce was spot on, my mom had the French toast made with bread from a local bakery, also really good.

Worth the wait for brunch, by far the best meal we ate in SD and the best fish tacos I have ever injested in my life. Staff is friendly, rushed and super busy on weekends especially for brunch so get there early. Loved the place and cannot wait to go back and try more of the great food.

We happened upon this restaurant and chose it for lunch. The French toast was outstanding! The chicken and biscuits was just ok. Chicken was tasty but the biscuits were very thick and doughy. Not my taste at all. However the location and views from the patio were fabulous! We would visit again for the French toast for sure!
