Just as wonderful as the San Diego weather.

We saw the review on Trip Advisor and took that advice. Started our day at Snooze and were thrilled with our visit. We went before 9am on a weekday so there was not a wait. Our waitress made us feel at home and we loved the welcoming vibe of the place. I had an omelet which was wonderful, but it... read more

The food is always good, I've never been disappointed. The pancakes are usually very sweet. With some items the prices are a bit steep for the amount of food you get.

Though the wait was long (20+minutes only reason I did not give 5 stars),once we sat down to eat, the service was great! The food was wonderful and everything everyone ordered was delicious! Great prices and I would suggest the OMG French Toast, any pancakes (3 of us shared one sweet potato pancake) or the omelet. So, if you have... More

Be prepared to wait, like an hour or more. But once you are in, you are going to have the best breakfast of your life! Get the breakfast burrito and smother it in some sauce..you can't go wrong! The other food all looked good but I just can't get past that burrito! There is also a location in Denver, I'm... More

food is great - different combinations of ingredients make it fun…although always a signifigant wait at usual breakfast times…both locations (del mar and hill crest) are nice and have outdoor seating - our waiter complemented us with a sweet potato pancake because of the wait - it was one of the best pancakes ever tasted : )

Great tourist spot for breakfast - centrally located and therefore convenient. The food is very good, but you won't find your breakfast favorites here - at least not in the form you have grown to love. It's all a little bit different, but that isn't a bad thing (unless you're craving comfort in an old familiar format.) There are two... More

Retro appearance. Unique way of preparing food. Lines out the door when it opens. Very good service in the heart of Hillcrest. Reasonably priced. What not to like.

Very good gluten-free pancakes. Great all around. Forgot the avocado with the Huevos Rancheros and chai tea was just OK and luke-warm, but food was great. Love that it's pasture-raised chickens.

The food is amazing here! I have been here quite a few times, service and food has never disappointed me. The wait is long, but worth it.
