We heard a lot about this place so we decided to try it. I was not impressed. It was affordable, but nothing special. They have outdoor dining, but it was too cold to sit out there so we had to sit inside where it was crowded. I would probably not try this place again.

Every time we are in San Diego this is where we go for breakfast, the long line is worth the wait. And the prices can't be beat. You will not be disappointed and thank me later.......

We were staying at Tower 32 boutique hotel next door to this place. Was told there was a queue of locals and it's true! Queue does move quick - it takes you a good five minutes to figure out which breakfast burrito or breakfast combo you want! Great Mexican food - we both had breakfast burritos which were filling!

My family and I stayed at the Pacific Terrace last week, just down thw beach from Kono'sCafe. When reading reviews for the hotel before we left, everyone recommended heading down to Kono's for breakfast rather than having breakfast at the hotel. On our third day there, we decided to try it. I will say that on a warm, sunny day... More

I cook better, but if you're young, don't know how to cook, and have not developed taste buds yet, and like a kinda cool place at the beach for breakfast, try it. You might like it, but it is NOT "The best breakfast in San Diego" by a long shot.

Has long lines but they move fast. Read the paper menu while standing in line. The potato and scrambled eggs have cheese in them so if you don't want the cheese..tell them. Tables turn over very fast and outside patio by the espresso area. About $7 for eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage, english muffin and pancakes or frenchtoast. Good!

We stayed at the Tower23 Hotel, and this restaurant was just a short walk down the beach. We ate breakfast here twice and sat outside, enjoying the views. The prices are very reasonable and the amount of food you get is quite a bit. It seemed to be a very popular place with the locals, so we knew we couldn't... More
