I ordered the huevzos rancheros, it was delicious. I can’t eat real spicy and the Wilma’s sauce was so tasty. They do have a spicier if you wanted. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It’s cute and could be someone’s home.

It’s hard to beat the picturesque Balboa Island bridge and street where Wilma’s is located. Wilma’s has a down home breakfast that we always enjoy. Nothing fancy but cute and fun. Good home cooking! Pancakes, eggs, waffles and more. Love it:)

This "beachy" cafe is the perfect place to sit and relax while enjoying wonderful food and great service. Simple but delicious meals prepared well. When busy, the service can be a bit slow, but it didn't matter, since it was so nice to just relax...More

You have to park in the Main Street (Marine Avenue) or in the nearby streets. It can be a bit challenging especially during weekend.
