The food here was delicious, and the vibe was cool. There was a bit of a wait for a table - and the text message they send to let you know your table is ready could be much more clear. ("your table will be ready soon" doesn't have the same meaning as "Your table is ready - please see the... More

I'm not even sure where to begin. There is only one thing that's not good about this place is that everyone wants to eat here and I have to wait to get to my amazingly delicious meal. I would recommend getting there early like 45 to 60 minutes prior to when you would like to eat. There time estimates both... More

My husband and I went here for breakfast on Tuesday about 9 a.m. It's a really neat restaurant, definitely a different design too. The food was great, the service was excellent and we had a great experience. We both had the Traditional Eggs Benedict which were fabulous. We each chose to substitute pancakes for our toast and potatoes. I had... More

We made reservations ahead via Internet . We mentioned that we had 50th birthday we were celebrating. We arrived , gave our name and waited for an hour before we were seated. The wait staff was great! Very friendly. The restaurant was clean. They messed up our order. But corrected it, they delivered the correct meal,even took it off our... More

Crazy good breakfast. So good that I went back again a couple days later. I did the mix and match eggs Benny one day and a pancake flight the next day. I love that they have options like that for the ADD eater like myself that wants one of everything. The pancakes were the best pancakes I've ever had. The... More

My daughter wanted us to experience the real "San Diego" and this is the breakfast place they chose. I had absolutely no idea what to order. I started with a Cappuccino rather than regular coffee. That was delicious (they will refill for free with regular coffee if you want) It is very open with large booths and different atmosphere. Yes,... More

This is a cute place. We went for a late breakfast. Huge pancakes five or six types, omelettes, eggs, all types of food. The bacon was nice and crispy (just the way I like it). Abundant portions, our waitress wasn't really on the ball( she forgot a couple of things) but the food was good. I would go again just... More
