Can't beat the ambiance

Ate here with family while staying in Oceanside. I am a product of the 80's so the ambiance, movie posters and memorabilia was so fun to see. The food was good, but about what you would expect at most cafe's. They did have some items on the menu that sounded incredibly good, so good that I... read more

This is good food!! We had breakfast here and was VERY pleased with the service and the food. The wait staff are prompt and very cordial - polite and friendly. I had the Athenian skillet and was absolutely blown away at how well done the dish was. My only suggestion for the Athenian breakfast was that they add about another... More

We stopped here on our way to the attractions for the day. I'm a product of the 80s so enjoyed the murals and sound track in the restaurant. The food was fine. It was a nice experience.

Decor was a kind of 50's look with pictures of movie stills and celebrities all over. People were nice. Food was just above average. Had pancakes and eggs it was actually very good. I'll go again.

I suppose this place would be worth a 35 minute wait for a table if you like 80's kitsch, and decent food, but don't go for the service. Our waitress nearly ignored us during our entire visit to the point where another waitress took pity and helped us out. Then our meal service was incomplete taking another 10 - 15... More

We went there because of all the good reviews, I agree with the reviews it's a very comfortable place to have breakfast. I can see how parking could be a problem if you go on weekends or at rush hour. We lucked out we went early on a Monday morning parking was not a problem. We ordered one of the... More

Breakfast so good I ended up going there everyday of my vacation. I had heard great things about this place from the most knowledgeable critics - the locals. From the stained glass windows of Slash and Madonna, to the MTV videos (back in the day when MTV actually WAS Music Television) and the murals on the walls morphing 80's icons... More

On our way down to San Diego from LA we wanted to stop to show our son his first view of the Pacific Ocean. We got to see the locals (and maybe some visitors) surfing as we drove along the beach. Decided to give the Breakfast Club Diner a try. The theme was right up our alley as my wide... More

Very good food for a very affordable price, you get a large serving of food. 80s theme is a blast from the past. Very good service, waitress was prompt and friendly
