“Yummy Brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Ample amount of serving! The french toast was superb and so was the meditteranean omelette. We sat outside & did not have to wait in line. I can imagine the place crowded on the weekend. Although service was okay, I will still definitely go back here the next time I'm in La Jolla.

“Best breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I'm not much of a fan of eating out for breakfast - vacation sometimes makes it necessary - but the Cottage is a place we went multiple morning during our stay in La Jolla and I'd LOVE to have one close to home! It is truly excellent! The omelettes are amazing! Good service and a very nice place to sit outside and enjoy your meal while enjoying the beautiful southern CA weather! Highly recommend this place!

“It's a La Jolla institution for good reason!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Had breakfast at the cottage restaurant this week and it lives up to the hype. Great selection, massive plates of fresh ingredients and well presented dishes. Pancakes (amazing). French Toast ( very special) and Omlettes that can feed a table of people. Go and share dishes and sit on the outdoor patio to "people watch". La Jolla is a beautiful place with interesting, eclectic people. A true coastal So Cal experience. Go early to avoid lines!
