“Must eat here if you're in San Diego!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Great pancakes! This place was hopping at 10am on a weekday, so we knew it was going to be good! Friendly service, extensive menu. Must try the Papas Loco if you're looking for a spicy, filling breakfast!

“Very good....long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

This place is very delicious for breakfast. I had the breakfast burrito and it was uniquely delicious. We waited about 45 minutes and was told it was only a 20 minute wait. So be prepared to wait longer than told. But the service was great and food portions are huge!

“Great place for breakfast”

This is an excellent place for breakfast. It appears to be a very popular place with the locals. Has anything you would like for breakfast. The portions were generous and the price reasonable.

“Best Place for Breakfast in SD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

I bring my family here for breakfast on a regular basis. The menu is excellent and I like the fact that the have ample gluten free alternatives for menus and bread; the portions are large, and the service is good. In addition, your coffee can ask and recieve almond milk with your coffee. Highly recommended, but expect to wait to get in.
Cheers!
