My husband and I split a burrito #1 and were completely satisfied. The burrito if full of warm eggs, sausage, melted cheese, and some avocado slices. We enjoyed the breakfast on the tables hidden from view across the boardwalk, behind the sea shell shop 😉. Wondering just how many eggs does this place go through in a day? The line... More

Konos is widely known in PB. When I first moved here, I was told it was THE place to go get breakfast. I stood in a long line for some time to only receive average breakfast food. Now dont get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with food it was just not the food I accept with all the hype.

Great food...The only thing that is bad is having to wait in line but the food but it's well worth it and the cost is very reasonable. They even will bring your food out to you if you decide to eat outside.

Having a breakfast burrito at Kono's is a great way to start the day in Pacfic Beach. The long line of locals tips you off and it moves quickly. Good burrito and breakfast options. Has outdoor and indoor dining. Great value as the burrito's are big enough to share if you seniors eating on a budget.

My brother recommended Kono's to us for our 5 day trip to the area. We were not disappointed. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but there was a line out the door each of the 4 days we ate there. You order at the counter and they deliver your food to your table. There are tables inside, but... More

I ordered a big breakfast #2. The food was amazing (OMG, THE POTATOES 💓 !!!!). The portions were big and the price was very reasonable. My new favorite breakfast spot. They're located right on the beach. The coffee was strong just how I like it. There was a line but it's definitely worth the wait.

Awesome breakfast, right on the beach. Simple menu, but delicious. My husband had the Big Breakfast and I had the #3 Burrito. The burrito was as big as my head, and full of yummy breakfast flavors. Highly recommended! Do note that they only take cash, but it won't be much; we paid $19 for breakfast and coffee for two.

We liked the breakfast and that they stay open till 3:00 so if you want a late one, this is great. Also loved sitting on the deck across the strand overlooking the ocean while we enjoyed the food. Everyday we had a cafe latte at the coffee place next door.

The breakfasts here are amazing. There is a long line every morning to get in, but the food and price is worth the wait. We really like the breakfast sandwich, which is bacon, egg, cheese, and tomato on an English muffin with mayonnaise. Be forewarned though - they only take cash, no credit cards. They also have a coffee and... More
