The fresh pressed orange juice came out of a pack. The soya coffee not bad but ok. No wifi available. Bit slow service. Decided not to have breakfast.

cute restaurant with outdoor seating and indoor seating as well. I had the beet salad and fish tacos and both were very good. The patio is very cozy when the weather permits.

We go here all the time but the last time has to be the best. We never really have to wait in line, we've been lucky but if you catch it at the wrong time, there may be a wait. We always try to sit outside because the view is amazing. Last time we were there a hummingbird kept coming... More

Checked this place out on the advice of a local and was not disappointed. Cody's is located about 2 blocks away from the beach and the view from their deck is awesome.

We had a very nice lunch here. Ample portions and friendly service. Nice outdoor seating, some with a limited view. Comfortable seating. A bit on the pricey side, but it is La Jolla. Parking can be a challenge but persevere. You'll find a spot.

Tried for breakfast and enjoyed a lobster roll, brimming with fresh lobster, scrambled eggs, coffee, toast and fruir cups - all for a reasonable price, Service was very good. Only problem was local parking, though ended up right outside

Stopped at this spot for brunch after our conference finished earlier based on a recommendation. Glad we did. Super cute. The lobster roll was massive and delicious to boot. Nice outdoor seating. Friendly waiters. Drinks out of mason jars (love!) Worth the short wait - just walked over to the park and enjoy the ocean views like we did!

Thank Cassandra H
