This is what every breakfast restaurant should strive to be like- different! The flight of pancakes was amazing as was the omg French toast. Today we are back for more!

The OMG French Toast and the Upside down pancakes is amazing. This place will not disappoint you. The wait time is a little long but it is worth the wait.

What an interesting breakfast selection! Very tasty too. This place is open primarily for breakfast and not for dinner. Get there early, like before the 8 am rush. Loved the pace, but I wish the lively music were truned down a notch - I like sleeping a bit until I finish breakfast.

So many breakfast joints are run of the mill cookie-cutter operations with cookie-cutter menus...Snooze most definitely is not. They do their own thing and it works on all levels. The staff is happy to be there and happy to guide you to the best options that satisfy your personal tastes. I went with my old stand-by; two eggs over medium,... More

I went to Snooze in Denver and decided I need to return every time I'm in Colorado. Now I'll add San Diego to the list. This is the perfect breakfast place with a bar thrown in for good measure. They allow for all sorts of combinations so it is ideal for the person who wants to try more than one... More

Great place, not a long wait time, not too pricey! I ordered cinnamon roll pancakes and they were a bit sweet but the rest of my food was great!!! My friend ordered chocolate chip pancakes she really enjoyed!! It was a lot of food for not very much! Came here for breakfast and wasn't hungry until dinner!!

I went to Snooze twice this past week while in San Diego. The first time I went the food was average at best, I had the hash with two eggs that were terribly under cooked, but the reviews were so good that I was determined to give it another try. The second time I went, I really wanted to try... More

Went with friends and two of us ordered the pancake flight where you choose 3 flavors of pancakes. One got cinnamon roll, peanut butter cup and sweet potato and I got blueberry Danish, peach cobbler, and OMG French toast. All were very good! We want to go back tomorrow but may have to resist a day or two and exercise... More

Snooze was good but for the price I didn't think it was worth it. If you are just looking for a good breakfast save yourself some money and go to Denny's or something. Don't get me wrong our server was excellent but just not worth the price premium.
