“best place for breakfast or lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Cody's had that small mom & pop feel to it. The food was excellent and the portions were very good. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, the wait can be a bit long. But id rather go to a restaurant that's busy than one that isn't. there's a reason it's busy.

“Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Light tempura style battered fish, not one bit greasy. The hand cut fries were crisp and tasty. I wasn't crazy about the coleslaw, it lacked flavor. The tartar and sweet chile sauces were excellent. One order was plenty for the two of us and the kitchen split it nicely between two plates. The omelets served to a table near us looked wonderful! It's a bit tough finding a place to park in the area.

“Great spot for watching the world go by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

My partner and I stumbled across this gem while walking around La Jolla.
We received a warm welcome and were asked to choose where we wanted to sit. We chose a great spot outside in the sunshine.
The "bubbly" section of the drinks menu is wonderful. I had a refreshing Lemon and Thyme Spritzer and my partner had a White Wine Sangria. Both were served in what can only be described as jam jars! A really original touch. They were both so refreshing.
We shared a snack of crab cakes which were wonderful.
Great service, nice location, and friendly service.

“Great Breakfast Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

We dined here for breakfast on a Sun am. We only waited less than 10 mins for patio seating w view of cove. Food was great Crab Benedict, Kids French toast was huge and my husband enjoyed some huevos w hot sauce. Quaint atmosphere and great service - it was kid friendly yet trendy!
