Loved this little restaurant we stumbled upon for breakfast while visiting the La Jolla Cove. Great menu, nice view of the water (especially if you sit outside). Would definitely return.

What an incredible location for a tremendous breakfast with my wife! Beautiful outdoor seating is available and we took advantage of a 70 degree sunny day in LA Jolla. The staff was laid back but super fast and friendly. Best french toast we've ever eaten.

This place is always packed. They too have a delicious lobster roll and craft cocktails, perfect for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, they have a great view of the ocean.

Location is king and they sure have it. The spritzers are killer but they lack a full bar. Food was solid and our waiter was good. The hostess was overwhelmed and the customers felt it. That should never be your first impression.

Nice view, attentive staff, very fresh but Mahi tacos were under seasoned for my taste. Not much food, though my friend's lobster roll was overflowing with huge chunks of lobster.

I see a lot of pictures of a lobster roll, but don't see it on the menu. Is there one?

When I was there in early August 2015, they did have it. The table next to us had one and it looked delicious!
Had the best cup of black tea there today. There were hints of orange. Please let me know where I can purchase these tea bags. What a great start to the day. Oh and the food was amazing.
