Superb except for smell.

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.

Loved the restaurant and the views are some of the best on the coastline!! But be aware if you eat outside it could get a bit smelly from all the seals and sea lions lounging around on the rocks. The food was just average compared to other restaurants in the area. They have the location and that seems to be... More

The food was great and the service was outstanding. As for the view, AMAZING! The only reason I rate this restaurant a 3 is the smell that blows up from the beach. There are a ton of seals right across the street and if the wind is blowing wrong then you smell seal piss.

Our view was incredible. Our server fun and kind of a foody. We chose the Mediterranean (hummus) platter w/ pita and veggies. Delicious hummus, and olive tapenade. Then we split Crab Cake Benedicts w/ coconut-tomato sauce. The eggs were cooked perfectly, the crab cakes were crisp and delicious. The coconut flavor I liked, the tomato part not so much. Then...

The view is stunning as you watch the sun go down but don't expect gourmet delights. We had what we feel was the best table in the house for the view, magnificent. The food was limited in choice and not of a high quality but you can't have everything.

Had great sandwiches for lunch here one day, and heard about their breakfast. We returned our last morning to try their famous Coast Toast. WOW! So light it nearly floats off the plate. The Cinnamon Roll Pancackes were fabulous too. Very cute place, great location near the Cove. We could hear the Sea Lions barking while we dined. Great staff,... More

The menu choices are interesting, a little different, and quite pleasing. Portions are large, making for good value. The food is delightful and pleasing to the palate. Service is good, too. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The dessert choices are also unique and excellent. We found only one complaint, and it CAN be quite troublesome for folks with any... More

We stumbled upon Broxton's after watching the sea lions at La Jolla Cove. We stopped in and they seated us right away. We had an amazing view of the cliffs and the ocean. The ocean breeze felt glorious. Breakfast was delicious, it was all fresh ingredients and perfectly prepared. We got some coffees to go, a drip coffee and a... More
