Excellent breakfast. Deservedly busy, but noisy inside.

I can't say much about the entire menu, but the waiter made recommendations that were appropriate for me. The food and drink were all tasty, tasty. This should be a bigger chain! Outdoor heating was appreciated. The only problem was the plastic seats. A bit sweaty.

Simply amazing! Wonderful, creative menu & excellent service. I highly recommend the sweet potato pancake with caramel sauce & blueberry muffin pancake. I had a side of eggs, bacon & a mimosa. Everything was perfectly prepared. Highly recommend!!!!

Had weekday brunch with my family. Food was amazing and service excellent. There are lots of interesting items on the menu and everything is clearly very fresh. Would very happily go back anytime (and probably will in the next few days!)

This was a fun little spot! Stopped here for breakfast a few weeks ago and sat on the patio. We got in before the crowd- we were there on a Thursday morning and the place was packed by 9:00am. I had the sweet potato pancakes with the ginger butter and caramel syrup- it was huge and delicious. My husband had... More

We tried it before 9 on a weekday and there was no waiting for a seat. The food was really good and as others have said, out of this world. I had the eggs with spinach, tomatoes and avocado. The hash browns were formed in a spiral shape and the whole wheat toast was buttery and yummy. If you are... More

Waited 1 1/2 hour on a Sunday. Just walked around the neighborhood. Well worth it because this food was out of this world delicious. We had the eggs benedict, stuffed French toast & great bloody marys. Outstanding with flavor. We sat at the bar and the service was super friendly. Fabulous Place :)

The best breakfast in San Diego! The pancakes are to die for! (Blueberry danish is my favorite!) and so are all the flavors of the eggs benedicts. Pineapple mimosas and vanilla lattes- all so so good! I go way to often!!!

We had 2 different egg bennys and a pineapple upside down pancake. They will let you mix and match 2 different bennys so you can try multiple kinds. They are perfect in every way and unique. The hash browns were pretty plain but looked cool. The pancake was hands down one of the best things I've ever eaten. No syrup... More

The owners of this place have got it figured out. I usually don't rate breakfast restaurants because they generally serve about the same fare, and there are only so many ways you can make an omelet. In the case of Snooze, they have figured out how to make breakfast interesting and show you a good time. First, the service was... More

Several friends and myself came to this restaurant for breakfast and it was amazing! So seldom does a place leave such an impact on me, but my server was AMAZING! Her name was Kirsten and she was the most attentive server I believe I've ever had! The food was equally amazing!
