What a cool, fun place with delicious food! Prices are reasonable and the food is outta this world. Our server was also excellent and the whole atmosphere is fun and laid back. We loved it.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this fun, retro breakfast bistro. The atmosphere is atomic 50s kitschy and the staff attentive and friendly. Their menu is gastronoMAGICAL. I tried the pancake flight which a sampling of three of their amazing selection of gourmet flapjacks. I had the Banana Nutella, Pineapple Upside-Down and Peanut Butter Cup. From the names alone, you... More

The problem with Snooze is I've never waited less than 1/2 hour, and that was at the Del Mar location. The one closer to home in Hillcrest, I've never waited less than 1 hour. However I always manage to go on a Saturday/Sunday late morning which I know is there busiest time. They do have a ping-pong table, infused water,... More

We love the food, the veggie burito and omelette plus pancakes were good. The music in the restaurant was very loud to our ear, so we noticed because of the loud music, customers talked loud to hear each other. Since we like the food, maybe we just order to go next time.

We flew into San Diego and went right to Snooze for an excellent breakfast. This casual and popular breakfast restaurant is Zagat rated and uses good quality and local ingredients. Great food and lots of choices for everyone!

A recent import from Denver, this breakfast-lunch restaurant has caught fire in San Diego. This may be one of the most creative menus we have ever seen. The best part is that every entree is DELICIOUS! This is not the place to go for a quick meal, or a formal dining experience. There is almost always a wait for a... More

When an older gentleman in a Hawaiian shirt gives you directions to somewhere to eat, we generally take the advice with some caution (not that anyone in a Hawaiian shirt has give me directions before) Anyway - he was not wrong. Snooze was incredible. Staff who genuinely care, a very funky building, barista coffee, and the best eggs we had.... More

Wow, Breakfast is my favorite meal, hands down, so today I had the time to explore and WOW. This is one of those high ceiling, wall of glass, neuvo 50's kind of place, cheerful colors, but not too bright. The music was to my boomer liking and not too loud (A complaint someone else made) Booths are a plenty in... More

We arrived at the Tractor Room down the street and found it closed. Disappointed, we wandered down the street and found a little bakery. We were just about to sit down when we looked a bit further down the street and saw a lineup out the door (always a good sign). Without a reservation, it was a 30 min wait... More
