Reviewed April 2, 2013

The brunch is divine but really recommend going on an empty stomach because Oh lord you will be full. Live for the Ricotta Pancakes, really next level!

“Excellent as usual!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Love The Cottage!! It was our favorite place years ago when we lived here and it's still wonderful service and excellent food. A little disappointed that the mashed potato omlet is off the menu, but the stuffed French toast made up for it. It was to die for Oatmeal waffles with bananas were also delicious and the apple juice was like fresh apple cider. A definate stop whenever we are visiting San Diego!! Love it!

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went with the kids around 10 am on a Monday. Didn't see the free coffee cake mentioned in other reviews; French toast was amazing and polenta eggs Benedict outstanding. Took home a bag of granola; attentive, quick service; spent $74 on a breakfast for four, but it was worth every penny.

Reviewed March 24, 2013

Food and service was excellent. The only bad thing was 45 minute wait for table. It was worth the wait...
