“EXCELLENT BREAKFAST AND LUNCH!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The concierge at our hotel suggested this place for breakfast. The hostess was a total dingbat when we got there, she acted like she didn't know what she was doing AT ALL. Evidently the manager/owner in charge saw what was happening (we were going to leave) and he jumped in "Table for 2??" and we got a great table outside in the beautiful weather, looking at the ocean.
My husband loves breakfast and had the waffle and eggs with link sausage. He loved it, (I tried the sausage it was very good)
I am not a huge breakfast person so I had a chicken salad sandwich. It was good, but it fell apart, because it was too stuffed! Not a bad thing! It came with a mixed greens salad which was nice.
The coffee and service (aside from above mentioned dingbat) was very good. The more mature servers would all watch the tables and promptly fill up coffee and waters. I like when you don't have to ask, or find "your server" when eating. If they passed by they took care of it. Nice place and very diverse menu, you will like it.

“Excellent coffee and breakfast”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice place in beautiful Del Mar - minutes from our hotel in Solena Beach. Italian coffee - bottomless cup was excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating with lots of people watching available.

“Great food...terrible service and management”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Waited 20 minutes for a server and when she showed up we were greeted with a "Are you ready to roll?" ...Hostess felt so bad she brought (what we thought were complimentary) mimosas at the 15 minutes mark. When the food showed up at the 36 minute mark we still didn't have silverware. About 15 minutes into our meal the server stopped by the table and announced "So I know have basically ignored you... So... Well you know". I guess that passes for an apology. Best service came from the hostess who checked in mid-meal to see how we were doing. The hostess got the tip. ...Oh the 2 tables next to us had issues too. So the place was pretty much a disaster on the service front. Diners beware.

“Absolutely amazing breakfasts!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have NEVER had a favorite place to go to on a trip but that all changed when staying in Del Mar. Luckily a local told us about it at the beginning of our trip, after the first breakfast, we were all hooked. The challah French toast is the best I have ever had.

Actually booked our next trip in Del Mar just so we could go there for breakfast again. How pathetic is that? Never did make it for dinner or drinks - but I am sure its just as wonderful.

btw - we split the breakfasts - at $10 a pop - one item was more than filling for 2 people.

One more thing - outside seating plentiful, lots of very well behaved pooches underneath the tables and lots of people watching!
