A solid option for breakfast

We found ourselves tired of our hotel breakfast buffet on our last AM in San Diego and decided to venture out. This was a good choice, especially since we got there right before the rush! As we were leaving, there was quite a wait. My spinach fritatta was delicious (although my muffin (not... read more

We found this place near the airport and decided to check it out. The menu offers a wide variety of breakfast favorites. The service was spot on and our coffee/water glasses were always topped off. The atmosphere is very family friendly and during the course of our meal, the staff led everyone in singing Happy birthday two times to 2... More

This place serves up an amazing breakfast. Huge menu. Great service. I've had omelets on every visit. Simply amazing. By pancake loving buddy was loving the cakes! And he is picky about them.

Very popular breakfast and lunch greasy spoon with a long history. Plates groan under the heavy amount of food. Lots of egg dishes. Watching the cooks especially is like watching a performance. Surprise for me was the tasty cinnamon toast. Last visit got a patty melt. Surprisingly they burned the toast yet still served it to me. I would have... More

I was looking for a place to grab some breakfast before an early flight and this just happened to be on the way to the airport. After reading some other reviews, this looked like a good place. Turns out it was the perfect mix of standard breakfast fare AND some great Mexican dishes as well. It has a great "home... More

Found this gem by accident, the whole family was starving and we saw Perrys from the interstate. Very good service and food - and plenty of both! Very good!!

We always make it a point to go to Perry's Café for breakfast. It is within walking distance from the Old Town Inn. The food is excellent -- not real expensive for the value.

If you are in San Diego traveling- you must make it a point to have breakfast at Perry's. The service is excellent, the staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The menu is very extensive, offering both Mexican and American breakfast choices. Old Town San Diego doesn't open until 10 AM, so we stopped to eat at Perry's before heading over... More

We had breakfast. A wide choice of food. Daily specials. A little dated but the food was great. Open for Breakfast and Lunch. If you want a good breakfast with great service, this is the place.
