Out of so many spots Snooze is the one!

Snooze is a fun upbeat atmosphere with a great vibe in hill rest in San Diego. The food was out of this world delicious! I had the OMG French toast with a thin layer of marzipone between the bread and vanilla icing. My husband had the snooze spud delux which is a hash brown with cheese and your... read more

Snooze is stellar. Creative, fresh breakfasts in an open, airy, fun atmosphere. Great service and delicious dishes. We were so tempted that we ordered way too many dishes just to try everything. Left stuffed and happy.

My sons took me here for the first time last Mother's Day. They have a great menu with lots of options including an amazing array of pancake flavors (great for sharing), the OMG French toast, which is to die for, and lots of egg choices. It's a fun, hip place to go with great music playing. Great mixed drinks (Bloody... More

Went to the eye center around the corner and decided to try this place for an early lunch. Why have I never heard of this place? It was absolutely awesome! I enjoyed the chilaquiles Benedict. What great mind concocted this? It was amazing. The breakfast pot pie was enjoyed by my husband. All the food looked great and I can't... More

First rate breakfast house. Very nice and friendly people. Excellent food. Good coffee. Try the eggs Benedict in any of the styles. We did the chiliquilles. A stack of fresh small tortillas, barbacoa beef hollandiase and fresh eggs. The taste was amazing. Tuesday morning, no line but I hear it gets crazy. We will be back often. Highly recommended.

This is such a fantastic breakfast spot. It was recommended by our hotel concierge and we are so glad he did. We had to keep going back. The atmosphere is neat, and the staff is so friendly. It gets really busy but we usually went earlier and did not have to wait. The absolute best thing on the menu, for... More

My San Diego friends keep raving about this place so I just had to try it. It definitely did not disappoint! It was so good we went twice during our San Diego vacation. I love that they allow you to split your Eggs Benedict so you get to try two kinds. My favorite was the Upstream Benny. Yum! Long lines... More

If you don't want the cramped experience at Hash House a Go-Go right down the street, Snooze is a great alternative for a great San Diego breakfast spot. It may actually be just as popular as HH. In a hip location, Snooze is mainly roomy and clean. The breakfast fare has "high quality ingredients" you can taste. it's all flawlessly... More

Snooze is the best breakfast spot you will ever find. Their specialty is pancakes but not like you are thinking. I had the carrot cake pancakes with cream cheese glaze that were so outrageous! My wide had sweet potato pancakes with a Carmel sauce which she dearly loved. The wait staff are all young and full of life. They are... More

I had the Havana Benny. Eggs Benedict but made with the flavors of a Cuban sandwich. It was so delicious and came with a side of the best hash-brown potatoes. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the hollandaise was smooth and creamy. I loved every bite! The service was also outstanding and our waiter was very accommodating, especially when we... More
