We had a leisurely mid morning breakfast on the patio overlooking the ocean in mid April. We had stopped at a couple of places first and Brocktons just hit us as the right place. We had a short wait while they cleared a table at the front on the lower deck (multi level outside and a screened in area attached... More

After walking along the beautiful shoreline to check out the seals, we came inside to warm up and have a beer. We started with a cup of their delicious seafood chowder. Next up was a local Stone beer to accompany the Greek appie platter. The sun dried tomato tapenade was zippy and full of flavour. ( This is actually only... More

I was lucky that night, they had some special going on, only $35 for a three course meal. I can't remember the appetizer and dessert, but I remember that they were delicious! For the entree I had sword fish - the best sword fish I've ever had! I was alone on a business trip, so the great location with the... More

A great history and a fun dining experience - a weekend villa from the 1880's now a Go To destination for French toast. The Cove Combo is $11 and consists of eggs, choice of meat, potatoes, fruit, and their famous 2" thick Coast Toast. Lovely! Fluffy with a distinct citrus scent. It's worth the drive!

Had breakfast here this morning on my walk along the La Jolla Cove. I used to stop here frequently during my morning walks with friends. The food was ok and the servers were pleasant and the view fabulous. Breakfast this morning was a completely different experience. My friend and I were both not very hungry so we just order cinnamon... More

we were looking forward to going back to Brockton Villa for breakfast, as we enjoyed this place very much on previous trips. The ambience was wonderful as always, cant beat the view, but the food was very much lacking. We had breakfast and it was fairly mediocre, scramble eggs tasted pre made and toast was burned. I doubt we'll be... More

I had their signature french toast with fruit. It was very good though the orange flavor wasn't really detectable in my dish. My husband had the pancakes. I tasted them and they were really not worthy to be on the menu in our opinion. Just fluffy flour nothings - no flavor, nothing special. I had read about the 1920's era... More

This cute restaurant sits just above La Jolla Cove and offers very tasty food. The fruit, bacon, salmon, and etc were all very good. The staff was friendly as well.

This is a must stop if visiting San Diego. Try and wait for an outside table the view is worth the wait. The food here is delish! The French toast is their signature dish which is great! Today I had the smoke salmon Benedict which I loved. Come eat and enjoy the view
