Even if this place was a dive hole in the wall on a side street, the line would still be out the door--generous servings and easy on the wallet.
Mountains of scrambled eggs laced with onions, peppers, sausage or bacon and cheesy homemade fried potatoes, the works for breakfast for seven bucks. Breakfast served all day.
Right across the beach walkway from Kono's is a beachfront deck where they will serve up your breakfast in less than ten minutes. Self ordering at their window but they will bring it to you on the deck.
Your view is of Crystal Pier and the ocean, fifty yards from your seat. Enjoy that San Diego sun and pleasant shore breeze while you relax and watch the surfers, bicyclers, roller bladers and joggers. I'd much rather be relaxing in the sun, chatting, eating and taking pictures !
Expect a line on the weekends. The solution? Park one person in line with the breakfast orders, and the rest can browse for beachwear and art right across the beach walkway, or enjoy the coffee/espresso bar next door with its own deck in the shade. You get the ambiance of Pacific Beach and a great deal for breakfast.
Weekdays? Short line. We went off season at 11 and there were only a few people in line. An all in one beach venture, a great meal and a scenic beachy venue.
