“Great Breakfast spot!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great breakfast spot, but very popular so you need to go early. I had the eggs benedict and it was great!

“Nice place for brunch”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

This place always look busy... Outdoor patio very nice to have your meals, indoor seating has a nice atmosphere. The food is ok. The Chicken Tortilla Soup was delicious along with the bread. The Polenta Benedict was an interesting dish. Unfortunately the egg was over poached, but overall, the food was good.

“Delicious breakfast, fantastic host”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had a great breakfast there. While waiting for a table they keep hot coffee and coffee cake for those waiting! Ordered the crab Benedict (awesome), and other egg dishes that were great. The scones are heavenly, and the eggs are poached just right. The host was great, he told us about places to visit, and gave us a tip about where to go at low tide to look for marine animals.

“Best breakfast in San Diego”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Hands down the best breakfast in San Diego, always great food, and super consistent. Be prepared to wait for a table, but they offer free coffee and free coffee cake while you wait. Awesome customer service too
