Worth the wait. Great fruit mimosas, crab cakes, and other brunch offerings. The lobster roll was HUGE! Chicken and waffles were good too. Salads were fresh and interesting. Try to get a table outside.

Came here for breakfast with some new friends. The blueberry pancakes with strawberries on top were amazing, huge, but amazing. Try the crab cake benedicts too, friend said they were awesome! Great view of the ocean, if you sit outside. Leave out a little early, because parking in La Jolla is awful, be prepared to walk!

Found this great outdoor patio with a nice view to sit and enjoy our lunch. Service was quick and efficient but by no means rushed. I had a wonderful lobster roll and my wife had the French toast. Bothe were excellent! Food was fresh and tasty and prices were reasonable. If you are in La Jolla stop in for a... More

Food was very good, pricey, but you are paying for the view. I had the french toast and it didn't disappoint. The bacon was excellent too. If you are in... More

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
