The location is something you have to find, not on Prospect. Small restaurant, good food, good portions.

Met a business colleague here for breakfast on a Friday. Pro tip: get here by 8 and you'll miss the crowds. When I arrived, I was the only customer--but by the time we left around 9:30, the place was packed and folks were waiting to be seated. It did get pretty loud, but the food was great. I enjoyed the... More

Loved the breakfast at this place. My husband and I shared the Chilaquiles and with a fried egg and it was really, really good. In fact, we told our server we wanted to share the dish and they kitchen divided it up for us on separate plates without us asking. Coffee was great too. The quality of the food was... More

My favorite place to have a power breakfast for lunch. Indoor/outdoor seating with prompt service and super healthy choices on the menu. I also enjoy the lettuce cups.

Retro feeling joint in LaJolla. It has kinda of that diner feel, but with it being in LaJolla, you know it will be somewhat upscale. There are no water views to distract you from your dining experience. Here, they have to rely on their food to bring customers back. They do not disappoint. First, you can sit outside or inside....

The Coffee Cup has a few locations in the San Diego area. This spot in the heart of La Jolla is a neighborhood favorite. They have healthy options for protein lovers or try their french toast if you want something delicious and sweet. Their coffees are pretty darn good as well. A must try for breakfast on your vacation to... More

Recommended by our hotel front desk person, this was the perfect place for breakfast on a cool misty morning in La Jolla. We ate outside on the front sidewalk. One had muesli, one had blackberry pancakes and chicken sausage, one had rosemary omelet and hash browns with salsa and warm bread - each under $13. The server was ebullient! Great... More

We recently found this place and have been there twice in a week. I wrote a review this morning on Isabel's Cantina in Pacific Beach, and that is how we found out that the same chef/owner (Isabel) owns both places. The menus are very similar which was great news! I have had the avocado scramble both times and it is... More

Found this just by walking around near our hotel, and were thrilled! Menu was varied, with plenty of vegetarian options even though it looks like a traditional diner. Service was friendly and quick, and the scrambled eggs with avocado were fantastic! Spouse loved the pesto eggs. Wish we had been able to go again!

Thank Michelle D
