“One of the best breakfast places in SD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

As someone who could eat breakfast at anytime of the day I love Snooze. You have to expect to wait to be seated but for me it's totally worth it. I always get the 3 egg omelet and I'm never disappointed. The service is great and the food is always so yummy.

“Cool vibe, great coffee, OK food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We were both surprised with the food. It got super reviews, but just didn't do it for us. It was ok, but just ok. He had the traditional breakfast, I had their version of a breakfasty pot pie. I liked the unique idea. Had a lot of black pepper and good veggies, but was just....OK. Would def not wait the hour+ again (they were quoting 1.5 hour wait for parties of more than 2 for breakfast at 11 a.m.) Love the method of texting when table is getting "near" and fun attitude with texts while you wait. Nice method of communicating when the wait is so very long.

“Good Food, Friendly Staff, Cute Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

The staff at Snooze is incredibly friendly and helpful. We went close to closing time because I failed at checking the time before walking in, so we didn't have to wait for a table. Our waitress was amazing and gave great recommendations. I ended up getting an omelet and my friend got one of their egg benedicts and both were great! We also tried the strawberry malt pancake, which I personally didn't care for, it was a texture thing and I'm a picky eater, but my friend liked it.

The decor is very cute and retro looking and they have these really cool round booths that I want in my house!

There wasn't any street parking when we went, so we pared at the garage across the street at the movie theater. If you're not looking specifically for Snooze you can miss it since it's on a small but busy street. Well, even if you ARE looking for it you may miss it like I did.

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Amazing! The OMG French Toast was outstanding. We went twice, and I ordered it both times. The pancakes were delicious, and my husbad thought the "Snooze Breakfast" buritto was fantastic. The buritto was so big, it was comical. Portions were very generous and the coffee was excellent. My daughter has nut allergies, and the staff was very knowledgeable and attentive to her needs. Plan to wait for a table, especially on the weekend, but it is absolutely worth it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

“The Jetsons, anyone?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Somehow, the atmosphere at this restaurant reminds me of the cartoon, The Jetsons. The company I have in tow concurs. Needless to say, it strikes a tone of retro and whimsy while still being comfortable and fun. Food is the star here. Breakfast benedicts, glorious pancakes, breakfast sandwiches...the menu is a standout with its offerings and thus its long wait list if you don't arrive early. The staff is gracious in accommodating "swaps." You can pair one benny with a different benny without an extra charge. They'll let you do this with breakfast entrees that come with pancakes too. Awesome! A really nice eatery with great selections and terrific service.
