Ive been coming here since back In the day when they were in the small strip mall and had to set up tables on the sidewalks, cheered when I... More

Every time my family is in the area we eat breakfast here. The servers are friendly and the food is amazing. My daughter loves the chocolate chip pancakes. I have the traditional breakfast & my husband has various items, breakfast burrito or pancakes or traditional. The atmosphere is beach themed with surfer memorabilia all over. It's a great place. We'll... More

Has always been on my list of favorite places to eat, but the last time it took forever to get seated. Then 1/2 the people in our party were served 15 minutes later than the other half.

We had a nice breakfast, not great, just good. The restaurants decor is very fun and beachy. There were lines of people to get in, so it makes me think we must have ordered the wrong things.

Beach Break has been home to me for about 10 years now. Started coming in back with I was stationed on Camp Pendleton. It quickly became a weekly ritual for Sunday brunch. Great place for friends, family, buddies, and "bruhs" Don't let the wait discourage you. Everyone is waiting for a reason. Try not to fill up on the tasty... More

The service was good, servers friendly. Atmosphere totally beach with pictures of surfers for generations. Ladies bathroom painted with ocean scenes with a shark having the toilet seat covers coming out his mouth. Surf boards everywhere. Food was good with lots of choices and large portions . Family friendly

4 of us were there for Breakfast on a Thursday midmorning and there was a 2 minute wait. It is well worth it though. We all had something different - omelets, corned beef hash and pancakes - all were excellent!

I have been visiting Oceanside for about 4 years now, and I never miss the opportunity to go to Beach Break for breakfast at least once of those 3 day weekends! The waiting area is decorated perfect for a beach feeling and you can have coffee or tea while you wait. It is run by a family that engage in... More
