Food is outstanding! Amazing View a MUST in LaJolla

They have amazing Coast Toast (the most pudding like toast you'll ever eat)--it's decadant French toast---and then steamed eggs with no oil and can also accomodate the strictest diets--the food is outstanding.

We stopped here for a weekday brunch after a walk around the cove. We were sited promptly with a nice table with a fantastic view of the water. We could hear the sea lions barking in the distance. My son loved it! Wonderful, friendly wait staff and hostess. Delicious iced coffee and pancakes!

Brockton Villa has it all; incredible view, fantastic food and service that's beyond reproach! Of all of the dinners I've had over the years, BV ranks up there with them all! It was that good. First, the atmosphere is incredible. Inside and outside seating is available overlooking La Jolla Cove. We sat at a table outside under an umbrella and... More

I really liked the beach house atmosphere of this place. Some may be bothered by the smell from the animals who claim the area around here but how often can you dine with Sea lions? I'm an animal lover so it was no issue. The servers are awesome. I didn't care for my Crab Cake Benedict (not really lump crab... More

Delicious food. I had their famous Coast Toast and the first piece was a little over done so I wondered what the fuss was about. The second piece was cooked perfectly and was as great as the hype. My husband had the Carne Asada Benedict and was very pleased. Most amazing was a spicy, chocolaty coffee that he ordered. (Wish... More

I met some friends here while working in the area and the sea lions were noisily enjoying the rocks below. We should have asked to dine inside but thought that the breeze would blow the smell away from the outside dining area. Well we were wrong... The service was excellent as were the crab cakes. But my fish tacos were... More

We liked this so much after dinner that we went back for breakfast! Everything that we had was incredible. My husbands filet at dinner was so tender you almost didn't need a knife. My salmon was so tasty. For breakfast of course we had to try the famous Coast Toast and a local fave Crab Benedict. Both were so delicious.... More

The perfect place, the perfect atmosphere, and excellent food. The drawback is the smell coming from the cliffs so be prepared. For breakfast the French toast is out of this world and for lunch I dare you to find something better than the salmon sandwich.
