Great food overlooking the ocean on a charming patio. The service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. Try to get the corner table on the patio. It offers excellent vistas of the ocean!

Fantastic food, very fresh, good portions, and a super view. Can't ask for more than that! Their french toast is as great as they say, as are their pancakes. On another visit, I tried ceviche and a fantastic grilled chicken/bacon/pesto/avocado sandwich. Make this a destination.

We made the mistake of going here for breakfast on our first day in La Jolla. The only problem was that it was so good, it put the breakfasts we had elsewhere to shame so we ended up going back almost every day! The portions were pretty big, which was great as they kept us going for a good few... More

I decided on Cody's after walking past in once and then moving along around La Jolla to see if I could findi something better. There was nothing I could find with the atmosphere that Cody's has. It is quaint, welcoming and has a very good view of the Pacific. My server brought a cute bottle of water with glass (similar... More

This was our third vist to Cody's and it was as great as we remembered . We have a hard time figuring out what to order because we love the Burger, Lobster Roll,French Toast,Calmari and the Beet Salad. So we end up over ordering and end up with a mini Buffet. The View is wonderful and has a cool Beach... More

We went here based on Trip Advisor's reviews and it didn't dissappoint us. Really tasty food, we ate the chilaquiles and their famous french toast, both great options. A little pricey maybe, but it has a good location almost in front of the park.

Cody's is located right smack dab in the middle the downtown San Diego. Its on a steep hill overlooking the salty ocean and towering palm trees. Cody's has indoor and outdoor seating on the small property. I sat outside on a warm, humid, yet cloudy day. Multiple umbrellas keep guests covered from the usual sweltering sun. We waited for a...

French toast and the farmers market omelet were the best. Great service and beautiful view of the ocean.
