Large, hearty breakfast to start the day. Busy weekends but not bad during the week. Can sit inside or out. Has a separate coffee area.

There is a line to get in and there is a reason. My husband brought me back his left overs because I was sick. The potatoes were the best we have ever had. They had cheese and peppers and probably other goodies that I can't remember but man they are good. We tried to to go back the next day... More

We got there about 8:30 and there was a very short line. By the time we left, the line was out the door. Whatever you order will be good and plentiful. I loved the potatoes but pretty much had to take them back to the room to eat later. Go outside and grab a table. There is seating with ocean... More

We loved Kono's even if you have to stand in line for a long time to order. (Get there early!)No matter...they are really fast at bringing the food to you. Their pancakes are delicious as well as the breakfast burrito and the basic eggs, bacon and potatoes. Watch out, though. The latter are so abundant that you will have a... More

Konos is a must. We stay at Crystal Pier and every morning this is where we go for breckie, there is no point going any where else. The food is fresh and delish and the guys that work it are the greatest. I

We managed to get to Kono's Cafe before the line formed which is a plus. The portions of food are epic in size and great tasting! Bring an appetite or plan to share.

A lot of places have come and gone in PB through the years. I'm so glad this place is still around . best breakfast in Pacific beach hands-down the big breakfast number two comes with potatoes, eggs, French toast and an English muffin and bacon. They serve the potatoes with peppers and onions so make sure you like that otherwise... More

I love Kinos- probably the best breakfast you will ever find in San Diego. The food is delicious- eggs, bacon, toast, french toast, hash browns and excellent coffee. The portions are so enormous that my wife and I split a #2 platter and still wind up taking the delicious hash brown potatoes home for the next day. Konos is quite... More

Showed up with 15 people at 2pm and got space overlooking the beach. All the food was as we expected, it came fast and hot and filled us up. Salads and burgers and burritos were all delicious. French fries are large. Kids had fun, parents had fun too.
