This is a coffee and pastry shop with very good pastries. They carry Numi teas. Breakfast was good here, but it is a small place and can get crowded and the food may take a while to come on a weekend morning.

Chicken salad had olives and grapes! Weird combo. Great location and friendly staff but I definitely ordered wrong :/

Lived on the Island for nearly 10 years. This was one of our go-to places when company came into town. The breakfasts are large, enough to share. And the pastry case is there just in case you can actually think of food after you get done. Maybe take for an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee from Starbucks right... More

The best breakfast stop on the island . Good old fashion Mexican breakfast with a French flair. If you are willing to wait a bit you will not regret it!

My husband and I were desperately in need of breakfast and it was after 11AM......we found Villa Nueva Bakery Cafe in Coronado to be perfect. You order at the counter and staff bring your meal to your table. We ordered a Cashew Roll to start while our omelet cooked. We shared the omelet at the suggestion of the staff as... More

When visiting new places I always look for the busiest place with the locals. I can see why so busy - good coffee, good food, and great location

Had an excellent sandwich (the Kitty Hawk), everything was very fresh and tasty. Husband had a burger & fries--I stole half of his fries! Delicious. Pleasant seating outside. Would like to go back and try other items from the menu--it all sounded good!
