Be prepared to wait on a busy day. BEST BEST breakfast and their homemade granola is out of this world!! So very yummy! Cute cottage on Faye Ave in Lajolla, a must place to eat if you like breakfast foods!

Looked this place up on tripadvisor and it was recommended by a good friend. Great food! The French toast is DELICIOUS! I had that as well as the Italian hot sausage scrambled and can't get over how good it was. My friends got the fried egg sandwich and it was cooked to perfection. Service is great and they are pet...

delicious, fresh food. Had to wait for a table but well worth the wait. Open for brunch/lunch but not dinner. Too bad it is not open for dinner! Friendly owner and staff

Haven't been here for about 5 years but glad we remembered about this place. Being from WIS, we don't get to eat outside very often so we always enjoy dining outside under the umbrellas and trees enjoying the cool breezes and fun atmosphere. And did I say that the food and service are always great! Just one of those moments... More

My husband has visited San Diego twice before (from Scotland) so when we came here on our honeymoon he told me we must go to the cottage! It was worth the drive and I now forgive him for talking about it all the time! The French toast with bananas was beautiful! We couldn't stay long as we had somewhere to... More

loved it here. Ultra casual corner spot under layered umbrellas. The menu had it all.... Pancakes, oatmeal, French Toast. We were here once 10 years ago and came back. Very nice, friendly service. Will come here every time we're in the area for breakfast.

The cottage has large portions, and the breakfast is phenomenal. Cannot go wrong with the omelets, but the stuffed french toast is an absolute essential. Coffee and fresh squeezed juices are great.
