We had lunch here and this is a very busy place. We got a booth and loved the classic rock music. My son got to play his favorite Buddy Holly song while we waited for the food. Great diner food and service.

Loved this place! Great local place...I purchased a fun apron here to bring home to remember my trip from San Diego..sat up at the counter, had a delicious omelette with fresh avacados, desired the pie, but refrained, had a great cup of coffee...it was a packed house, but enjoyed my quiet lazy saturday on the island at this wonderful gem of a place...highly recommend...THIS is what diners should be...not a chain, I felt like I was back in the 1950's, had I been alive back then :)

We actually went there because we had seen another review and sure enough it was true-reminded us of a café in the 1950's/1960's. Lots of old time decorations, music & comfort food.

When I moved to San Diego in the 70's, Claytons was in Coronado - and it still stands today. Nothing special, certainly not fancy. It is a casual, clean coffee shop that serves an incredibly reasonable breakfast. You could go to a Denny's but Clayton's is really a coffee shop that will win your heart. Eggs, toast, crisp bacon and good tasting coffee (I am not a Starbucks fan).

Even if you are not tired of oh hum breakfast food at hotels this place is a must. What a tasty treat! Cute interior, juke box against the wall and wait staff with smiles. Well done
