About
At Tent City Restaurant, we want to make you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. Our name celebrates Coronado history and we strive to honor that name by providing residents and visitors with the same warmth that John D. Spreckels provided Tent City guests back in the year 1900. Both our unique location in the heart of Coronado’s beautiful Orange Avenue, and our menu selection inspired from different tastes and styles make up for the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner setting.

The food was great, service was good. Price was fairly high for breakfast but I guess it’s because it’s on Coronado.
