Be prepared to wait for a table at this local's spot. Everything on the menu is delicious and cooked to order: from the special pancakes (e.g., banana coconut oatmeal!) to the Mexican style eggs, to the brown rice stir fries. Yummy rosemary bread transforms otherwise more traditional sandwiches.

Upon our visit to La Jolla, our family of 4 dined at the Coffee Cup. We had everything from scrambled eggs with bacon to cinnamon french toast and berry pancakes. Each entree was quickly prepared and quite delicious. Upon inspection of the lunch menu, the food has some Asian influences.
The only drawback to our breakfast was the lengthy wait to be seated. We took this to be a sign of a good restaurant, and waited patiently. Unfortunately the young female hostess was unfamiliar with her job. Her inaccurate waiting times frustrated several patrons who eventually gave up & left.
Our family would absolutely try the Coffee Cup again when visiting La Jolla for either breakfast or lunch.

We have eaten here several times and the food is great. Sometimes there is a line but it's worth the wait.

If you like a bit of asian influence in your meal, this place is awesome. Simply the best breakfast in La Jolla - that's from a local.

We had an interesting and delicious breakfast at the Coffee Cup in La Jolla. The menu features typical breakfast items with an unusual twist. I had the breakfast tamales which was great. My wife had scrambled eggs with avocado. She said the potatoes were perfect. Service was personable and very CA. I'd go again in a heart beat.
