Great food in historic downtown Vista

Popular and delicious cafe in downtown Vista. Always busy. Eat inside or on the sidewalk. Fun place for breakfast or lunch.

Nice place for breakfast. Outdoor tables which were enjoyable. Home made Hollandaise sauce on the Eggs Benedict !!! Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. I obviously liked the place.

Great setting on Main St in Vista. Loved the table setting outside. Went for a late breakfast and enjoyed the Eggs Benedict. The breakfast early bird specials are a pretty good deal--price and helping. The cinnamon rolls everyone raves about were good (especially if you like lots of nuts) but I felt it was more of a cross btwn cinnamon... More

I finally tried this cafe and it was just great! The service was great, everyone was polite and the food was delicious at a very reasonable price. My daughter is a vegetarian and the dish she had almost converted me! I will be making this one of my go to places.

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
