Great cheap breakfast. Loved the pancakes. Get there early they open at 7 and get busy fast.

Kono's is one of my husband & I's favorite place to go for breakfast in San Diego. The food is great, cheap & huge portions. We usually share a breakfast & both leave satisfied & full. Their Egg Scramble is the best as is the burritos. Oh & the Kono potatoes are soooo good! Never had lunch there, but I'm... More

Best breakfast burrito! Be prepared to stand in line, order at the counter, and they will bring it to you. You can sit inside, but outside with a view of the ocean is better.

Great place to wait in line for a breakfast burrito. There's been a line every time I've gone, but you can go up and grab a menu to be completely ready when you get inside. Also, I've never had a problem getting a table (they have inside and outside seating). I recommend their #1 through #5. :-)

Decided to check this place out after reading about it on here. Line wasn't too long when my boyfriend and I showed up. By the time we ordered, it was out the door... but I was amazed with the quickness of the staff. They flew through the orders, and everything was cooked quickly and done well. The food was delicious.... More

I love this place and go each and every chance I get when in San Diego. Their breakfasts are huge and so affordable, not to mention delicious!!! Lunch is great too. My fave is their egg salad sandwich or blt with avacado. If visiting Pacific Beach you must eat here.

We read about Kono's on Trip Advisor and decided to go there for breakfast. It is located right by Pacific Beach. We came early as the reviews said to do. I am glad they suggested that because it is best to come early if you want to get a seat. The food was very good, hot, and very reasonably priced.... More

We headed to Kono's to try out the breakfasts that we had heard about on food network.We were NOT disappointed. We found a parking place and got in line. There was a line even though it was early in the day but it moved quickly. We got the big breakfasts and actually could have split one. The food was well... More
