Went with a friend for lunch. I ordered chicken tortilla soup with house salad...salad was good but soup could be better. My friend ordered Belgian waffle and eggs and bacon. The waffle was good but first they forgot the eggs and bacon and second a moldy blueberry was found. When we notified staff, the waitress giggled a bit (younger girl).... More

We stopped in for breakfast and was it ever good! La Mesa has an extensive menu with lots of things to choose from. I had the stuffed French toast which was a little disappointing but it came with scrambled eggs and bacon so I was satisfied. My husband had an omelet that looked (and tasted..wink wink) great. The pancakes are... More

I am never disappointed in the food or service. This family operation is exceptional in every way and the food and variety is wonderful with the quaint outdoor eating area or room enough in the back to host a large group. They have my vote for excellence.

Breakfast is very good here! They do give everyone the best service they can. Orders can come pretty quick to a reasonable wait time. This is a popular spot.. it is busy for breakfast and usually has lines to order food. Portions are usually Big! For water and coffee- people serve themselves. The parking lot is busy and can get...

I had the best food here in this hidden little gem. sundried tomato, mozzarella, sandwich with tortilla soup. the prices were decent, too. then we shared a acai sorbet dessert bowl with fruit and granola and coconut shavings. soooo good. it is a little awkward to order and pay for your food in a line, then sit down, but the...

We stopped by on off hours for a quick lunch and were extremely impressed with the service and quality of food we ordered. The food was hot and plentiful. They had the best french fries I have had in a very long time. Our sandwiches were filled with tasty vegetables and lots of turkey slices. There were many choices of... More

Generous portions of food for breakfast. Large menu, but they will accomodate almost any special request. Self-serve coffee from a dozen blends is a great idea. Usually busy, so be prepared to wait a few minutes.

This little restaurant sits in a commercial strip mall (not really a "mall" - just a conglomeration of stores and shops) and really is unnoticeable from the street, which isn't that well traveled. Don't let that fool you; this is a destination! Specials are posted at the door as you enter; more specials are on the wall behind the register... More

I stopped into this restaurant with my sister for breakfas because it was supposed to be pretty good. We saw a line of people at the register, but a few empty tables. We didn't see a hostess stand, so we sat down. No servers approached us so we flagged down someone wiping tables and asked for menus which she brought... More
