Wow! The Chiliaquiles is a must. I had them with scrambled eggs but it also comes with chicken. Food is excellent as is the service. A must if in the Gaslamp district.

A little bland, but good healthy place to eat. Oj is superb! Freshly squeezed. Will come back again. Had the eggs Benedict and the trick platter for breakfast. Next time will try something else. Good, but a little too healthy.

We were looking for a place to have a big breakfast and we happened to remember this place from The Food Network. The helpings are very large and the food is great. We didn't have to eat again until late in the afternoon.

Considering that this is a breakfast place, I must mention the time and day of my visit. I was here on a Tuesday at 7.30am. I was seated promptly by the person at the door/cash register. The ambiance was cozy with bright yet soothing colors....More
