Very casual. Large servings but they're quality too. I had the breakfast burrito with the additional request of sausage. Usually breakfast burritos are heavy on hash browns and light on egg and meat. This was the opposite. Loads of egg and sausage and almost no potato. The salsa was excellent too. Not too hot but excellent flavor. I highly recommend... More

Snooze is now a San Diego staple. A must is to share a few signature pancakes with the table. Also, you can get a half Benedict of two- best of both worlds. Fantastic brunch cocktails. Go early- there will be a wait!!

Great food but I think they regret moving into such a small space. My kids love it, I much prefer the original pancake house (not nearby though). For me, it's not worth the typical 20 min wait for a table. There's no atmosphere for outside eating, unless u like facing a parking lot.

i've made it a point to go to the best reviewed breakfast places in San Diego before work, and i have to say that none of them can hold a candle to Snooze. multiple types of eggs benedict, actual pancake flights, a full bar, sustainably-minded ownership, super-hip ambience, great service...it's not even close....Snooze rules!

I had eggs Benedict with a pumpkin pancake and was completely blown away. Our wait was about 45 minutes on a Sunday but well worth the time. The service was friendly and helpful!

We went on President's Day, there was about a 20-25 minute wait. No biggie, expected it. Open, eclectic setting, with very friendly staff. The food was really good! It was hard to decide what to get, I wish we could have gone back again! Very homemade tasting food. We got the corned beef hash and the OMG French Toast. Both... More

I first ate at Snooze in Tempe, Az, and then came to the one in HIllcrest in San Diego. Both have great breakfast choices. I had the Corned Beef Hash which has roasted poblano chilies in it. They also made perfect sunnyside up eggs and instead of toast, I paid a little extra to try one of their superb pancakes.... More

This place is by far the best I have been to. We have come back 2 days in a row. Extensive menu, great space, fabulous food, great service. We came both times around 7 am on our way out to zoo and safari park. Not crowded. Loved reading about the owners and how environmentally friendly they are.
