What a great find! Awesome breakfast menu, can't wait to go back! We had the breakfast "scramble" with turkey, onions, mushrooms, cheese, spinach, salsa...OMG it was so good! We bought the homemade organic Mango preserves made from their kitchen, it is yummy. Their lemon blueberry pancakes looked good as well but we didn't order it as we were trying to... More

The breakfast items were very well done and tasty. The included jam sample was very good, also got a jar of it to take with. The jam isnt overly sweetened like all the rest.

Great menu with very creative unusual ingredient combinations. I had fish tacos and they were wonderful! Lots of snapper! Husband had the calamari wrap. Kids had various options from gluten free pancakes to sandwiches to a monte cristo. They serve breakfast all day. One of our party said that the gluten free bread on the turkey sandwich was the best... More

The Beach Grass Cafe is located on Highway 101 just south of Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach. There are lots of tables and booths inside and quite a few tables outside. They make their own chicken sausage and turkey Chorizo as well as several marmalades. They have a good menu with lots of unusual choices and they serve... More

Just went for the first time to the Beach Grass Cafe and boy did they have some of the BEST clam chowder ever! Not the gluey think kind- just the right consistency with actual clam shells in the soup. Delicious! Loved the mango chicken salad. Friendly, great service. Reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

Lot's of items and the menu was reasonably priced. The pineapple upside down pancakes were very excellent. Lunch or breakfast items, both good. Dine inside or out.... More

We are clam chowder fans and have tried it in many places. Usually they try to go so creamy as to have a spoon stand up in it. Many times it's good but more often just too rich. Well I see why Beach Grass refers to theirs as clam chowder BROTH. It is not thin by any means but just... More
