Cute little trendy brunch spot. Get there on the earlier side on the weekend if you don’t want to wait. Good menu, fair pricing. We got banana bread french toast and the sweet potato egg bowl.

Got the blt, made with belly center bacon, so not sure if it’s made different from regular bacon, but didn’t taste like it was so salty like normal bacon. Made with sourdough bread (huge slices, looked like they probably made it in house, ketchup too)...Hashbrowns were gigantic, like a hamburger patty from a whole potato, kind of overwhelming 😵If they had cut the sandwich in half and maybe did two thinner hashbrown patties instead of that big daddy, might have been better. The food was good though.More

Was so happy to see Snooze Hillcrest Eatery right across the street from my doc's office after a recent early morning appointment...especially since I had been fasting for blood work! We were surprised at how busy they were for an early morning weekday. We sat...outside and were immediately served with coffee which was amazingly good - we're coffee snobs and are often disappointed when ordering it out. Our server, and others we observed, were super friendly and very attentive (without being annoying!) It seems like a little thing, but our server noticed my coffee was low and she brought a fresh hot cup to replace it - instead of just filling it up and without any prompting from me! Hello, this is fantastic service! Tables all have a scannable QR code menus. Our meals - a garden harvest omelet and the Benny Duo - were delicious! Snooze's menu is creative with lots of options and everything is made with quality, responsibly sourced ingredients. The drink menu looked awesome and although we didn't order anything, I love that the bar is open as soon as the restaurant is open:) We will definitely be back!More

Wow. Every bite was amazing. Our server Taylor took care of us with a smile and the food did not disappoint. Every bite was heaven. Huevos Rancheros was spot on and the Benedict were cooked to perfection. All that and Taylor brought us something sweet,...a single cinnamon roll pancake that was just the perfect end. Couldn't have been better. Since its Sunday we did have to wait about 20 min for a table but man it was worth it. 100% recommended.More

So good, we went two days in a row! Excellent pancakes and eggs benedict! Several variations. Highly rated in local magazine so we gave it a try. Short wait to get in but well worth it. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Definitely will recommend...to friends and family.More

One of the best places in San Diego to have breakfast. We come here because of a friend's recommendation. The menu is good with a lot of selections. The price is reasonable and the staff is friendly. Highly recommended!

We came here on a recommendation from a chef we know who had been here before. It was out of our way but we came to check it out. We ate breakfast and their menu is great, lots of options for Eggs Benedict and other...creative meals. The food was great and we got to sit outside in the sun which was nice. Lots of ambulances go by due to the hospital a block away. Our service was average, I think it's because we were the only table outside and were tucked away and forgotten about. It took a long time for food to come out and refills on drinks when asked. The server was very nice and a great guy, even bringing us an extra pancake at the end on the house. Overall a great experience and would come back if in the area.More

I had the habanero pork belly benny plate and it was so good that my friend said "it tastes like a unicorn jizzed in my mouth." A bit vulgar but really drove the point home. My friends and I ordered all different plates and took...bites of each other's food. Literally everything was great. It is my buddy's birthday and the server brought him a french toast with a candle. It was some of the best french toast I've had. I would recommend anybody coming through San Diego eat here for breakfast. The bone broth bloody Mary was great as well.More

My wife and our friends were very pleasantly surprised, and most pleased, with the food, venue, and service (for breakfast). The food was indeed very tasty and some of the dishes were very imaginative. We liked the bit of an edgy industrial decor, which made...the restaurant very open and sunny. We were also very surprised by the number of families with small children.More

It will be a bit crowded but anywhere in the area will be a wait. However, well worth the wait. Go early if you can.
