First time in San Diego with the wife and we were just driving and saw this place. Not quite sure pulling into parking lot but the reviews were great and they were busy when we walked in. And now I know why. Great great great. Would definitely come back.

We went here for breakfast and were not disappointed. I had the french toast which was amazing and also tried the avocado burger which tasted delicious. The portions were generous we couldn't finish it all!

We came for brunch after a friend raved about how awesome this place was. It's an older 1980s style cafe and not the modern updated kind but that didn't bother us one bit. The place was packed but they sat us down right away and had plenty of high chairs to accommodate. We sat in the right hand corner of... 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

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 portions are big and the food is... 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
