Whether it's the Mayor walking her dog or the School Board President sharing lunch with the President of the Teacher's Union - Curbside is the place to see and be seen! Sit outside on a sunny day - gobble up their superb omelettes - slide into succulent sandwiches. Tea water was only warm enough to warm cold hands, and the... More

If you are looking for a good breakfast in a friendly environment you will enjoy the Curbside Café. They offer basic eggs, bacon & potato breakfast as well as several kinds of Benedicts, pancakes and more. The sweet potatoe pancake was delicious. Several dishes have yummy local avocado on/in them.

We were in Vista for a lacrosse tournament and were tired of eating at chains restaurants. We wanted to go local. Fortune smiled on us as we came across The Curbside Cafe. What a gem! The staff was super accommodating in helping to seat a large group at the outdoor tables. Of course, we were in a rush to get... More

I've been coming here for years. John and his staff always make you feel at home and well attended. The food is great as is the service. A perfect place for breakfast on a weekend morning.

Favorite with Sunday Brunch crowd and the lunch bunch. Atmosphere like a soda shop with a few local artists paintings on the walls. Small tables grouped close together, but the friendly waitresses make you feel welcome. When in Vista, good spot for cafe watching with your dog, or you can just finding home style cooking at affordable prices. Check them... More

As far as breakfast dining experiences go, this place is top notch. Excellent food, fast service and extremely reasonable prices. Be sure to get there between 6:00am and 9:00am for the early bird specials. You will not be disappointed. I got the steak and eggs early bird special with hash browns along with coffee for around $12 after tax and... More

The food and service were excellent and we had a beautiful patio day as well. The Reuben, Bug Bird and Ny Steak sandwich were all delicious. We had a new waitress who was being trained......she and her trainer were very friendly and attentive to all of our needs. We will definitely go back when we are in Oceanside.

If how crowded a place is any indication of how good the good is, then it's obvious from the street! All of the "curbside" seating was taken but we got seated right away inside. The latte was perfect. My Spanish Omelette (2 types of cheese, avo, salsa) was huge. And delicious! The side I chose was country potatoes and they... More

Don't miss breakfast at Curbside...or lunch either. This is our "go to" place for breakfast out. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is great. They do have some limited outdoor seating. Highly recommend this little downtown gem
