Beach Grass Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch. The food is fantastic and both locals and tourists flock to the place. The lines on the weekends can get long, but the wait is worth it. We hit the place every time we are in town. The omelets and scrambles are great, but it is not often that you... read more

I first went to Beach Grass Cafe with a cousin I met only a few years ago. She introduced me to this restaurant and we both ordered the Maple Bacon Cheddar pancakes. I recently returned with my husband and ordered that same breakfast and he had the Pineapple Upside Down pancakes. Both were delicious! We both enjoyed this quiet spot... More

Stopped here for lunch based on reviews. It's not much from the outside and we were a little skeptical. However, the service was friendly, fast, efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My burger was delicious and the fries were excellent. Got a four instead of a five because my hamburger bun looked mangled. And you have to access the bathroom through... More

The food is excellent, although I have only tried breakfast foods. Salmon omelette is a favorite. Great coffee and service!

We had occasion to visit the Beach Grass Cafe following a stay-over in Solana Beach for our Anniversary. They had a nice selection of healthy food choices and some different offerings. I had scrambled eggs, a spicy sausage and polenta cooked in a banana leaf. The sausage and eggs were cooked well. I thought the polenta was a bit bland... More

The blue corn pancakes were outstanding, the French Toast was cooked to perfection, and the server was quick and attentive! Definitely recommend next time you're in Solana Beach!

We had high hopes for this place. Decided to have breakfast here for our friends who liked the gluten free options. Our friend, who has citrus allergies, informed our server when she ordered and was served a blueberry pancake with lemon. She informed the server, who was very apologetic, and he brought her a plain blueberry pancake. Unfortunately, the poached... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Beach Grass Café on a late Sunday morning. The portions were generous, there was a great selection, and breakfast was also available. There were several people waiting when we arrived, but we were seated within about 10 minutes. The coffee was very good, we both enjoyed our food, and the service was... More
