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

My husband and I ate here for the first time a few days after moving to Oceanside. We were pleasantly surprised that even though there was a line of people waiting we only had about a 10 minute wait. The service was better than I could have asked, especially being the Sunday morning rush. I order a Belgian waffle and... More

My husband had a breakfast burrito and he loved it. I had strawberry and whipped cream waffle with sides of eggs and bacon. I always have the fruit etc. served on the side so that the waffle won't get soggy. All was excellent!

The Breakfast Club Diner was on the disappointing side. The wait was very short, but the food took very long to arrive and once it did, it wasn't very pleasing. We took a seat outside for about five to ten minutes until our name was called. At first we were sat by a bathroom, but we requested to change seats.... More

We ate at the Breakfast Club on a Sunday morning. They were quite busy but the service was still fast and the food was really good. We had a couple breakfast burritos and the eggs Benedict (YUM!).

Thank Jaime G
