This is the cutest place! Great veggie omelette with best hash browns I've ever tasted. Amazing friendly service, from the waitress to the busboy. Great decor, fun to reminisce about the 80's! My friend had a Bloody Mary, it was beautiful and she said it was really good. Highly recommend this place!

So, an old time surfer buys a restaurant, decorates it with surfing paraphernalia, and sets up an eclectic breakfast only menu. Food is well prepared and plentiful at very reasonaable prices. Good coffee and service make up for the noisy environment with beach boy music in background. Beware of the long wait line on week ends between 9 and 11... More

I have been to the Breakfast Club Diner many times. It never fails to have a good breakfast product. The owner and servers are friendly and attentive. The murals are awesome. Its a must if visiting Oceanside. The place is a landmark type place. Get your 80's trivia out! This place is like an episode of Back to the Future.... More

Breakfast Club Diner is hands down the absolute best breakfast restaurant that I have ever been to in my life!!! This is the only restaurant where the wait staff actually remember you when you walk in the door. The friendliness is not feigned, but is genuine!! The food is so far above the standards that other places. I definitely recommend... More

Popular place Saturday morning. We waited for about 30 min for a table for 6. Very helpful staff and prompt service. Lots of smiles, suggestions, and upbeat server. We would definitely come back on our next trip.

Both breakfast and lunch menus are awesome! The breakfast menu has excellent egg dishes and skillets, and the lunch menu has many sandwiches and burgers. The staff is always nice and friendly too!

A fellow traveler said we had to eat there while we were at the beach watching waves.Ithe is only a 5 to 10 minute walk up the hill from the beach. A unique 80s pop culture atmosphere with great food. I love eggs Benedict but felt adventurous and tried eggs Flourentine I believe they're called (tomato & spinach added to... More

We stopped in here on our last day in Oceanside. It's a cool little 80's themed diner. Their pancakes are really good, thick and very fluffy. The bacon was also crispy just like I like it, and the eggs I ordered over medium were perfect; not slimy or too over done. All in all, a good place I would go... More

Great little informal place for breakfast or lunch. Very open and airy inside, with lots of pictures and a 1980's motif. Wide range of breakfast plates, and sandwiches and burgers. I had an omelet and it came with ribbon cut hash browns (love them) and toast. Everything tasted like it was made with fresh ingredients, and the portions were nice... More
