EVERYTHING was delicious! We had giant biscuits & savory onion gravy; French toast with strawberries, candied walnuts, & mascarpone honey butter; crab & corn chowder in a bread bowl; & roasted beet salad with champagne vinaigrette. The atmosphere is cozy, Cali cool, with indoor & outdoor seating. Convenient to everything in La Jolla.

Had the crab cake benedict that was awesome. Wife had an omelet and son had regular eggs benedict. All were enjoyed.

Normally, I'm a tough grader for restaurants while on vacation. Cody's of La Jolla exceeded my expectations.

Wife and I splurged on a trip to LJ (her home town) and stayed a week at the La Vallencia (which is an incredible property but that's another review). We got into a routine of waking just after sunrise and walking down to the LJ Cove for an early morning snorkel/swim. Afterwards, we'd make our way back off the beach and had 3 incredible breakfasts at Cody's. The location is about half a block off the beach - just across the street from the back entries into La Vs. Very causal atmosphere (we wore our wet swimsuits each morning) with several outdoor tables that look down on the ocean.

The eggs benedict, the crab eggs benedict, the quesocuellos (sp?) ... heck, even the grits were amazing. We only did breakfast but their lunch and dinner menus looked very good also. Based on the line sitting outside on the weekend, we aren't the only ones with this impression. I don't think they take reservations so, if you do go on a weekend, come early or expect to wait 10 or so minutes for a table.

Beautiful location just up from the beach, this place is simply awesome. The food is fantastic and the service is attentive and consistent. We ate here three mornings in a row, and enjoyed every visit. It is very popular, but the wait for a table is worth it. I had the Crab cake Benedict, which I would highly recommend.

We had french toast and the veggie hash and BOTH were FABULOUS! The coffee was pricey but very good. The staff were really efficient and helpful. We sat outdoors and all was well but after a bit we realized we were being WATCHED..... the little birds are very bold and were waiting for us to be off-guard!
