The pancakes are huge. The atmosphere is all 80s from the pictures to the music. Family loved it. Happy 4th of July to everyone!

I went here for lunch with a friend. I had the Nutella flapjacks, which were amazing and huge. The the decor was a fun 80s theme, and the service was great! The only downside is that it's a little pricey for breakfast food.

We stopped here on our way to the airport to return home to home to Houston. Best idea ever. Really nice place. The food was great and service was great. The Eggs Benedict had some of the tastiest hollandaise sauce I've had.

We went here for breakfast the other weekend. It was steady inside with a few bigger parties dining in. We didn't wait long for a table but it took our server almost 10 minutes to come to the table. She was friendly but not as "on it" as she could have been. The food was average - pricey for breakfast... More

We went there on a Sunday morning while in Oceanside to visit relatives in San Diego. It was a beautiful day, so there as a 45 minute wait. But it was worth every second of it. I had California Skillet which was made with hash brown potatoes, chicken breast, broccoli, cheddar cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes and topped with slices of avocado.... More

I stopped off for lunch here and found it to be a fascinating 80s themed place. There were photos, pictures, guitars etc etc decorating the place, all with an 80s theme, from pictures of the Breakfast Club movie, to a Eddie van Halen guitar, stopping at most points in between. The service was as one would expect in a diner,... More

Looking for a good place to eat in downtown Oceanside, a place that could satisfy four picky family members, we spotted a new restaurant on PCH. We were greeted at the door, seated quickly, and had menus and beverages in hand promptly. Our waitress was the best, smiling, knowledgeable of the menu, attentive, and deserving of a big tip. The...
