“Breakfast with the Locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The breakfast menu is varied and prices are, well, fair. The french toast with bananas comes with sliced bananas on top, not sandwiched between bread slices and cooked which I liked. The waffles are thick; crispy on the outside and soft inside. There's nice patio seating (no view though) with lots of propane heaters to take the chill off of an early ocean-town morning. A great place to meet up with friends to plan your day meet up for coffee and a pastry. Open for breakfast and lunch only. I've dined twice and will be going again with friends coming to town.

“Tired of typical breakfast places?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

You MUST try The Daily News. It's quaint, it has an extensive breakfast menu, the feel of Carlsbad Village on a weekend morning reminds one of a faraway vacation spot and the outdoor seating just enhances the experience.

“Good breakfast, rather pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Not a greasy spoon by any means. Good menu selections, coffee was VG, home fries were just OK. It is a nice location and the wait staff was outstanding. I felt that the prices were very high, for just a good breakfast.

Give it a try, just be ready to pay.
