“Eat like the locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

If you are in the area, DO NOT miss a chance to eat breakfast here every morning. It is small, but it is worth the effort. My husband and I looked forward to eating here every morning so we could try something different on the menu. I rarely like breakfast foods (not a fan of eggs), so they allowed me to order anything off their menu. Freshly prepared and great service. Love, love, love it! My husband is still raving over their omelettes.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The reviews didn't lie! Tiny little place that has a great team serving great breakfast dishes. The Mexican Special with cheese and peppers omelette, steak and potatoes was excellent. The guacamole rocks! The breakfast enchiladas were very good as well.

“So many good choices, only one meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We met a relative of mine here for Sunday brunch. Could not have been more pleased. There are some many wonderful things on the menu, we were sorry we could not order them all. Definitely will go back whenever we revisit La Jolla.

“Inspired breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Wonderful, fresh breakfast. Probably the best breakfast we had during a week in San Diego. The rosemary potatoes and omelettes are incredible!

“a little different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a little different to the standard coffee shops. Seating is limited as the place is relatively small, but the friendly and fast service makes up for that. Found the menu very interesting and absolutely delicious. the coffee is excellent, even got one to go after breakfast. The place has a certain vibe which reminded me of coffee shops in Berlin, Germany...that is a positive thing :)
