My husband wanted to go to the restaurant that his grandparents always took him to in the 1960s. It's has changed as expected, we are well, good service, the only thing was I was a coffee drinker, they only gave me three creamer, and they never came to refill my coffee. Only when I was about leave.

T's has been in Solana Beach for ages and I still love going there for breakfast and coffee. It is not trendy and sophisticated, so keep that in mind... Just "old school" booths and tables with a great free standing old fireplace.

Stopped here on our way to Cabrillo National Monument from L.A. Hostess girls were sweet and the atmosphere friendly! No wait to be seated on a Saturday morning which was nice. Cafe is a little throw back and added to the charm. Food is delicious and a good menu selection. Our server was also sweet, but the food did take... More

We've been going to T's for 35 years and it's our family restaurant. We used to take our sons when they were growing up and now in our later years, we go during the week for breakfast. Comfort food in a quaint atmosphere along the PCH so easy to get too. Parking can be a problem on weekends and the... More

Cute, old-time cafe. Stopped here for breakfast on way to Dana Point on a Sunday morning. Had to wait to be seated. Lots on the menu, but the kitchen must have been overwhelmed, took forever to get food. Once delivered turned out to be to be good. Average for atmosphere. Above average for food and below average for time/service.

We've had breakfast here several times. We enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Usually the service is okay but this last time, it was poor. I had to ask for more coffee and then my cup wasn't refilled again. I asked for water and waited a long time to get it. Our check never arrived so I gave my credit... More

This is a good restaurant in a convient location on PCH. Good, pedestrian breakfast choices from eggs to granola.

Sun 9/14 for brunch. Met our son's & their friends for a well anticipated Sun brunch (7 of us). We had reservations so why can't we be seated? I see the table..."hello!". Finally sat down & greeted right away...wait for a menu, wait for a drink order, wait to order, wait for our food & they weren't even that busy.... More

We have eaten here twice now. The staff is very friendly. The food is tasty and well prepared as well as fresh. The coffee is just how I like it. A nice spot for breakfast.
