“Classic American Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place has been around forever and is still as popular as ever!! The food is fresh and generous (but not ridiculous). Best of all, 80% of the seats are outdoors where you can appreciate why we live in Southern California! On a beautiful day, expect to wait for a table. Staff is experienced and friendly. The menu has a great variety of comfort dishes. Service can slow down when the kitchen is busy, but staff keeps the refills coming. After your meal, take two steps towards the ocean and stroll leisurely along the beach.

“Great breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate breakfast there every day of our stay. Service varies from good to barely passable, but the food is terrific. My husband loved the corned beef hash with poached eggs. Omelettes are huge, and filled with great fresh ingredients.

“Wonderful breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent experience at this little spot. It's worth the wait because they seem to be pretty busy. I had the best ever Cinnamon Bread French Toast. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, good variety, not just your average breakfast!

“Clsoe to the beach and quite good.”

Go for breakfast. Great assortment and large portions. Service is nice too. Really close to beach and downtown Carlsbad. Quite crowded for breakfast in season.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We arrived at our Resort a day early, and they recommend we
go for lunch at the The Daily News Cafe while waiting for our room to be prepared. Diane had a salad and Steve had homemade chili and bread. The food was excellent.
