Wow!

All these years of driving by here, the parking lot always seems packed, I've always wondered....finally stopped to eat and wow, the service and food is the best! From the moment you walk in they ask how many and they seat you promptly. The wait staff is the friendliest and most attentive. The... read more

Breakfast for three adults and 2 kids 65.00. Well managed get people seated and served quickly. I'm an omelet fan and my western was tops - so big in fact I couldn't finish it. Warm cinnamon roll, blueberry muffin, waffle and French toast were tops also. Country fried steak and corned beef hash were not good at all. If you... More

We stumbled upon Perry's Cafe in San Diego toward the end of our West Coast US road trip. We were seated quickly, served expertly, all our meals were excellent, our coffee was topped up with a laugh and a smile it was a great way to start our day.

This restaurant hasn't changed at all since it opened. 50's surroundings, food, service but not prices of course. We stopped at Perry's to get breakfast to fortify us for our trip home. Service was solid from very experienced servers, Food excellent, nothing foo-foo here. The bacon was the leanest we have every eaten in a restaurant. Great coffee. Size of... More

Omg... I had the best breakfast at this restaurant. I ordered the Mexican Frittatta, and my husband ended up eating almost half. The juice is cold, there is a good selection for kids, and the prices are reasonable.

First, the look of the restaurant inside and out gave a yummy, country impression. The food was relatively yummy - The pecan waffle I had was not over-ladened with fake whipped cream. It actually tasted very good and had a balanced sweetness. The hashbrowns were buttery in taste, hence the grease on the plate...but was good as well. The team... More

We now see why Perry's Cafe is so popular and always crowded. We had a great breakfast and were seated quickly and served soon after. The price was about $24 including tip which is pretty good for San Diego. It filled us up until dinner time (we ate close to 11am) because portions were good size.
