Great Breakfast! Large Parking and Plenty of Tables

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.

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!

Food came out hot and well done. Hopping place, quality staff, and clean. Several different staff members kept coffee filled and made sure we were doing well without being intrusive.

I has breakfast with my senior friends. We were kind of bored by the same style breakfast in the hotel circle area. Perry's cafe was half full already when we got there about 7am. I ordered burrito with eggs. My big dish tasted good. You will be satisfied by its quality anf quantity.
