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

We chose this restaurant for the menu. We will have to come back because there were too many mouthwatering choices. You can get all the usual breakfast items, but there are some really unusual scrambles, french toasts and especially pancakes. I had Lemon ricotta and blueberry pancakes and my DH had blue corn pancakes. You can get a "half" portion... More

Many choices for a good breakfast, particularly if you feel like having eggs. Waitress was quite friendly and cheerful, service was good.

Pancakes are just YUMMY. Best Pancakes we have eaten in California. Super fluffy, buttermilk pancakes with everything you want to enjoy. With the pancake the Capuccino was good and in a really big cup. Fruits with Granola are also very very good!!! Although located at the highway you can sit outside on the terrace with no negative noises around. Top... More

We spent a month at Solana Beach and this became my husband's favorite place for breakfast because of their french toast. So good! The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating and many many interesting menu items. Highly recommended.

You can sit in or outdoors. It is hard to choose what you want because many of the items on the menu sound great. Service was good. I would definitely go back.

Great variety and well prepared large meals. Non-traditional entrees, so if you are completely set on eggs and bacon, better check the menu first before going. The use of rice, spicy sausage, and great fresh flavor of the ingredients is why we go. I suppose it could be called Hawaiian style, but not being all that flair with island foods,... More

I have eaten here a couple of times. The location is marginal...reminds me of a converted car repair shop...and the tables do not actually face the potential views of the hills, coast hwy...odd. Food is hit or miss. Average.

They have an interesting menu with lot's of options, all made to order fresh, and I imagine as farm to table as possible. They smoke their own salmon so order it with a bagel, cream cheese, onions, etc. and you'll be delighted. We'll go back every time we're in Solana Beach or nearby.
