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

Great food! I ordered the "little breakfast" and it was anything but!! We also had a quesidilla, which was large! Make sure you have cash, as it is a cash only place!

Great local restaurant with excellent breakfasts! We had their #1 burrito special which was loaded with fresh avacado and sausage. It was so good, but huge! Our daughter had the pancakes which were also great. Don't mind the plastic chairs and tables...the food is terrific and very reasonable. Well worth a stop!

I came here around September of 2011. The first thing I noticed was the parking, the cafe is located on a corner on a beach walk with a U-turn parking lot. This allowed only about five cars to park. I drove around for about five minutes until I found parking and walked across the street and into a long waited... More

Ate here one morning while staying at the Pacific Terrace. We just beat the long line. When we got there the line was just to the back door and we probably waited 10 minutes to order and less than 5 for our food. Well worth the wait! Great, affordable breakfast.
