“Wonderful Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We found this restaurant on Yelp while vacationing in Carlsbad. It had great reviews so we decided to skip the overpriced hotel breakfast buffet and check it out. I'm so thankful we did because our family loved the food and the prices! The biscuit's and gravy are fantastic. Everything was fresh and the staff was friendly. We liked is so much we went back the second day.

“Best Local Eatery for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a local hangout for a good hearty breakfast. Nothing fancy. Just good home style cooking. If you're a tourist and are looking for good value and good food -this is a great place. Expect to wait for a seat during tourist season.

“Great Breakfast Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We ate here twice for breakfast while vacationing in the area. This is a small family owned restaurant that is a nice change of pace from the "chain" breakfast restaurants. The food is great and you get very generous portions. The staff is also very nice and courteous.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I recently spent a week in Carlsbad and ate breakfast at Don's three times. The Zorba Scramble was excellent with lots of feta, spinach, tomato and onion. It's a local version of a Greek omelet and I loved it. If you're looking for a very casual local diner with good service and great breakfast selections make sure you visit Don's.
