Patio dining all summer

Love this local eatery. Owner/staff are always personable. Favorite is the grilled shrimp santa fe salad!! Everything is always so fresh. Sometimes its hard to make a choice. Great atmosphere and sitting on the patio in the village is always so quaint.

I had been near this restaurant many times at night, but since it is only open for breakfast and lunch, I always missed out. Thankfully, I decided to give this place a try on a Sunday for lunch. Our server Diane provided excellent service and the food was very nice. I tried the crab cakes sandwich and was quite happy... More

Curbside is a Vista staple. John the owner is a fixture and keeps careful eye on the quality of his food. This is a breakfast and lunch place - excellent egg dishes and my favorite is...the cinnamon rolls. If you are on a special diet you can have your food made your way. Curbside offers wonderful salads and sandwiches but... More

This is a people & pet friendly cafe. The food is delicious and service is quite good. You have the option of sitting inside or outside. It is always clean. Their soups are outstanding.

Discovered this little gem in downtown Vista, which is a quaint little area. The Curbside restaurant was quite busy, however the Customer Service was excellent. They also offer outside seating if you like, where you can people watch. Their breakfast potatoes are the best I have ever had! You will not be disappointed. Just be prepared to pay a tad... More

We got there early and had the good fortune of getting the early bird specials. Mounds of delicious food for a paltry sum. The service was great the food was wonderful and if I'm ever in the area again I'll be sure to pay another visit.

The food is amazing, the staff great, you can eat on the curb and watch the activity in the area, and you can get just about anywhere with the Sprinter and highway nearby.

This is one of my favorite places. It is in downtown and in the midst of it all. The food is good and the was service was great. I got the Greek Omelet and it was one of the best. It had feta and sun dried tomatoes. I love the muffins but the cinnamon roll is great. We tend to... More
