“Good Salads”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This is the place to go in Fallbrook if you want a decent choice of salads. It's one of the nicer restaurants in town.

“Rude, rude, rude”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you're fortunate enough to eat there when the owner is not present, you will have a pleasant visit. The staff is nice and the service is fine. The food is tasty, and the outside patio is a pleasant area to dine. Unfortunately, the owner is brash and often sarcastic. He makes you feel as though he's doing you a favor by letting you sit in HIS restaurant. He has the same attitude at El Jardin, the other eatery he owns. One example (of the many): A longtime friend and I get together a few times a year for lunch. We love to chat and catch up on each other's lives. Often we stay a bit beyond the completion of our meal, but only if the restaurant is not busy and the server said it was okay.We always tip the server very well. On 3 different occasions, he has come to our table and made rude comments about our non-stop yakking, and has even asked, "didn't we have somewhere else to go?" Needless to say, we don't meet there anymore, there are many very welcoming and friendly eateries in Fallbrook.

“Good place for breakfast”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Good atmosphere, outside dining. Good service. Good but not excellent food. I lived in Fallbrook for years and this was one of the best places in town for breakfast and lunch

“Best Restaurant in Fallbrook”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great food with fair pricing. We didn't realize this was a restaurant until we lived here for about 6 months, we thought it was a garden store. Luckily we stopped in for breakfast and it was great then followed up later with a nice dinner for two. Great staff and a very nice selection of bakery/dessert items, yum.

“Adorable location”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This restaurant was so adorable and cafe like. You wanted to sit and dine just for the experience. They had sky lights throughout so it was like sitting outdoors with the comfort of indoors. The food was fresh and developed. Their salads are much more than just lettuce and tomatoes. I have the chicken southwest salad with a side of berries! Do dine here! You will enjoy!
