We stopped here on my last night in San Diego. My daughter and I shared the popovers and gnocchi as starters and then split the French dip. Everything was excellent. Will definitely stop the next time I’m in San Diego.

I have been there about five times over the last four months. It is consistently good. The portions are extremely large if you get certain dishes.. A wise idea is to share them since they are extremely decadent. We always get the maple bacon donuts....More

Sat down, gave us a menu and then ignored us for 10 minutes. We finally flagged someone down for coffee, then still waited and waited (it wasn't that busy). Finally took our order (not too much "healthy" on the menu). Food came, eggs were fine,...More

My husband and I had just survived the long process at the nearby DMV office. We wanted to reward ourselves for making it out relatively unscathed. The late breakfast at Great Maple was just what we needed. Because the prices were a bit high, we...More

We were there for restaurant week, but upon reviewing the menu, the prices are mid-range ($$), so $12 and up depending on what you decide to eat.
