“Best Breakfast!”
Reviewed December 30, 2010

skip your hotel restaurant and head here for breakfast. Nearly everything made in house, it's just delicious. On our 5 day vacation from CT, we had every breakfast here. THe omelets were huge and very filling, the waffles and pancakes likewise. The muffins were terrific as was the fresh OJ. Pick a sidewalk table and enjoy the sunshine, relax and enjoy the scenery. We ate one lunch here and it was good, not quite as great as breakfast, but still good value and good food.
Service was a little on the slow side, so if you need to hurry, cancel your appointment and enjoy the slow life.

“You can skip it”
Reviewed July 21, 2008

The only thing good I have to say is the orange juice was fresh, however, it was so thick it was like eating an orange through a straw -- seeds included. The pancakes and french toast were both over cooked. The restroom didn't work and the employee suggested using Starbuck's restroom next door.

“Fresh and made on the premises”
Reviewed July 11, 2007

This cafe is on Coronado's main street, 3 blocks up from the Hotel Del Coronado, and well worth the walk. The breakfast omelets were fluffy and had fresh ingredients, the potatoes were hot and tasty and it came with 1/2 of a croissant.

I tried the cranberry, mocha chreamcheese, and pecan muffins, which were large and moist. They have a variety of teas, and beautiful pastries...all large, fresh and very inexepensive.

Indoor and outdoor seating was available. The atmosphere was very cozy and friendly. The daily walk from the Del was a nice one, and this became our main breakfast cafe during our visit.

You can't miss at this one...I recommend it highly.
