I have had breakfast and lunch here and the breakfast is my favorite. Love their french toast!!! Great atmosphere, eat inside (which feels like home) or outside with a view of the ocean. Great food and service. Like I said, get there early! There will be a wait, but again, there is the view of the ocean!

We were in La Jolla on the weekend so finding parking is insane. Be patient, my husband drove two blocks away from the beach and shopping and pulled into a street-side slot as someone left. The restaurant is small for the volume it does. I think it is only open 8-3 but check their website. We asked for outside seating so it was a 20 minute wait...not bad. Then we waited another 10 minutes for a different table with a shade umbrella. It was very hot at lunchtime. Our daughter had fish and chips and loved that they were not the least bit greasy. Presentation on all of our food was exceptional. I had the signature challah bread French toast with strawberries, etc. It was very good. Servers were prompt, kitchen amusing. If you do wind up sitting indoors, it is sort of pleasantly funky and the aroma of the best quality coffee is terrific. It was a nice experience away from the bustle of the shops but one block away from the beach with a gorgeous view downhill.

Ate brunch on the terrace. Waiter was lovely, portions were generous. Good location.

Food was ok, nothing to write home about but good value for money.

There were quite a few flies around. Had eaten outdoors a lot in the area over the week and not experienced this anywhere else so don't think it can be blamed on the location / the fact the terrace is outdoors.

Great food overlooking the ocean on a charming patio. The service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. Try to get the corner table on the patio. It offers excellent vistas of the ocean!

Fantastic food, very fresh, good portions, and a super view. Can't ask for more than that! Their french toast is as great as they say, as are their pancakes. On another visit, I tried ceviche and a fantastic grilled chicken/bacon/pesto/avocado sandwich. Make this a destination.
