Good sized portions and an extensive menu make the place to fill up, share and rest assured of good quality food. I actually cooked here 50 years ago when if was owned by another party, and had a different theme, so I have a soft spot in my gut for them. Large portions: big omelets, cinnamon rolls, great lunches. Local... More

We first ate at T's on Sunday morning. Got seated right away and the service was fast. Didn't have to wait long for our food. The food was great. Decided to go back again on Wednesday morning. Arrived a little after 8 a.m. We were seated right away and our drink order was taken fairly quickly. Then, the waitress walked... More

We've been going to T's for years. It's a great stand-by local breakfast spot. You can't have a bad meal or service here.

We visited on a Saturday around eleven in the morning. A very long line, our wait to be seated was 30 min and another 30 min before our food arrived. The waited apologize for the long wait and brought us a complimentary gravy/biscuit plate after about 15 min.

I go to T's probably 3 times a year for Sunday breakfast. I've had almost everything on the breakfast menu. Their french toast is old school thick and really soaked in batter. It almost tastes baked instead of fried. Just excellent. Next you should try the hash Benedict. Wow! So unusual and really hits the spot when it is cold... More

The staff obviously does not care about visitors. Too cool. Locals only. I was here with 2 kids obviously not interested in our business. Usually, everyone here at solana beach is very friendly. I think they are tired of tourists here. Too bad

My husband wanted to go to the restaurant that his grandparents always took him to in the 1960s. It's has changed as expected, we are well, good service, the only thing was I was a coffee drinker, they only gave me three creamer, and they never came to refill my coffee. Only when I was about leave.
