My daughter and I were on vacation on Coronado/SanDiego, this was our 4th place to eat breakfast. It was by far the best food, excellent service. Just watching the cook was entertainment. Small diner, wonderful. French toast was AMAZING!

This is a small diner, that has been in business since 1929, the Esquer family has owned it since 1996, we have 20 seats and the counter surrounds a flat-top grill and vintage hood that was salvaged off a ship more than 100 years old. You watch your found being cooked by one person, depending on what cook you get your food will get to you fast or...not so fast but will always be delicious!. Weekend mornings are the busiest and we are open late, Friday and Saturday Nights till 4am.
