Breakfast hit the spot!

Went here for 2 days in a row as the kids just loved the breakfast. service was very good...the breakfast sampler ensured I did not have to eat for the rest of the day!

Breakfast nicely prepared and adequate, enough choice for all 4 of us (2 couples). No less expensive than hotel dining room though.

It's an IHOP "express" - more a fastfood than breakfast thing. But there is no other IHOP in the center of San Diego. Probably they will Start one soon!?!?
