I've been coming here at least since the early 2010s (closed during COVID, like everywhere else at that time) and it's always been a great place for me to come in by myself, sit at the counter, and not get judged by anyone. Espresso and...food are always good. The menu hasn't changed much over the years but I think that's a good thing. And the staff is excellent. Props to Tara and Lucy who have put up with me the longest over there!More

I’ve been a regular here for 3 years. I love the Papas Loco. The Chilaquiles are delicious. They also have some good vegan options if that’s your thing. The sweet stuff on the Menu is great too. The Staff are amazing. They treat me like...part of the family. Many of them have worked here for 20 years . I highly recommend this place.More

I am traveling with a vegan so the restaurant providing a separate vegan menu was wonderful. Michaela was our server and she was wonderful. I let her pick when I couldn’t make up my mind. She picked Papas Loco and it was AMAZING. I was...stuffed and had enough to still make a burrito to take with me. Highly recommend. I will be back.More

The place had people outside waiting. That's the first of a good place to eat, people will not wait for bad food. When we got seated, the waitress came straight to the table to after we wanted to drink, service was great food came out...hot and on time completely healthy great food great taste was amazing, if you're looking for a place to bring your family for good food this is the place there's also a one in Pacific Beach if you're on the coast I highly recommend you go to either one of these two places food is really good service is great people are really kind and glide the way to make you happyMore

One of the best breakfasts we’d ever had on a vacation. The Mission Rosemary was tasty and filling and the cinnamon French toast was heavenly. The coffee and orange juice were both sooo fresh. Definitely coming back again before our vacation is over!!!

We showed up for brunch at 12:30 on a Sunday. There were groups standing outside waiting for a table, but since we were only a party of three we were seated almost immediately. Service was good, food was fantastic. We each ordered a brunch entree,...but after taking one look at the cinnamon French toast at the table next to me, I got an order to share with the table. So glad I did!!! If you are a fan of French toast, do not miss this!! Everything was great. We will definitely be back!More

Met up for lunch at this cafe , parked right outside and staff were really attentive. The service was great and the food fine nothing to get over excited about but I had a great burger although a little small! The atmosphere was relaxed and...the decor fine . Only issue I had was the table itself was not fit to eat off with laminate starting to come away, Needs upgrading but other than that a really pleasant experience and would recommendMore
