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.

I ordered over easy eggs, country fried steak and hash browns. The first thing I cut into was my eggs that were completely under cooked and runny. Put those to the side and refused to eat them but seriously?? You are a line chef in a breakfast restaurant that doesn't know how to cook eggs?? Ridiculous. The country fried steak... More

I will say the decor definitely needs to be updated! It looks like it got stuck in the early 80's. It's a very busy place but we were seated within a few minutes. The food was excellent even if the ambiance wasn't there. Their Mexican Frajitas were very good! I was just a little surprised by the shredded beef! The... More

Great food with large portions! We enjoyed our visit and left feeling very full. The servers were nice. I could eat here everyday but I am unfortunately over 2000 miles away! If you have the chance, go grab some breakfast!
