Good breakfast!

We stopped at Cody's for breakfast. It was good. Wonderful attentive service. I loved the hot tea. Blueberry pancakes were good. Eggs delicious. Bacon was crisp and really good! nice view!

Really cute, trendy breakfast/lunch in La Jolla. Wait was long, but I would anticipate that always being the case. There seemed to be a lot of choices in the area without a long wait. Also, the parking wasn't great, unless you want to pay. The food was good, but I guess from previous reviews I expected it to be great.

The restaurant was very busy on a Friday for lunch. You are fairly closely seated to other diners but the wait staff kept on top of your needs. The food choices were good as was the food. Don't know if I would want to go during peak times.

I cannot recommend Cody's enough -- don't miss the lemon thyme spritzer! The crab cake benedict is delectable and surprisingly light -- rich, but not too rich.

the View is great, the food was great - unfortunately they were cleaning the carpet across the street so it was really noisy. Hostess could have been friendlier - but my server was amazing!

Cody's is my go to place when I want a fantastic meal right by the water. This place never disappoints. I have tried most of the menu items and each one is truly mouth watering. The French Toast is HUGE! Something that can be split between two people. The eggs benedict is the best I have tried. Cody's pays attention... More

While there was a wait, a good sign it was fairly short. They have more tables outside than inside but either are good. There are seats to relax in if you must wait. Interior is bright and welcoming. The service was attentive with a nice bustling feel and an open kitchen that was equally humming. The tables are close together... More

We didn't know where to eat in La Jolla so when we came upon Cody's we decided to stop. What a great choice it was! The staff was friendly and the food was great! We had a table by the street and the view could not have been better! Ceviche,Lobster roll, Chicken Pesto were great! Limited Menu but No disappointments!

We found Cody's on trip advisor while drive south down the coast to San Diego. The edit was long for a table but it was worth the wait. I had chicken and bisects that were amazing. It's a must stop if your in the area.
