“50's Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This place has a lot of character. Breakfast was good and great value. The taxi driver recommended it and looks like it is a must if you visit Coronado. Arrive early to avoid long wait.

“claytons is part of coronado”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Locals and tourists enjoy hearty breakfasts in the cozy diner. Sit at the counter and be prepared to chat with your neighbor who might be a navy seal or even the owners. Daily specials and delicious shakes. We are always stopping in.

“Breakfast time machine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Stepping into Clayton's is like hopping into the DeLorean with Marty McFly. The juke-box, the china, the unbelievably bad for you but delicious breakfast- all scream 1950's. How did we survive? This definitely is a not to be missed experience on Coronado Island. It is so much more than a meal.

“Great little diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stopped in for breakfast based on reviews, did not have to wait on Saturday at 8am. Got the corned beef hash and it was awesome, my wife had French toast which was pretty good too. The hash browns were great and the decor was retro and very cool.
