Description: Over 24 years ago, we stumbled onto a sleepy little restaurant called the Cottage La Jolla. The restaurant was a local hangout and had a reputation for delicious food and friendly, personal service. Since 1992, our business has exploded, and in late 2009 we finished a complete renovation of the restaurant. Improvements include a handicap lift & restrooms, expanded kitchen & a fresh, new look. What hasn't changed is our passion for serving tasty, classic American & Southern California influenced food. We are also proud of the many servers, bussers and cooks that have been with us for years & years. We are often asked how we are able to operate two restaurants on different coasts, and our response is, "It's all about the people." Please take a moment to say hello to our Manager, Michael Harrison, on your next visit. Welcome to the Cottage!

THis place was good, but again, not deserving of #2 in San Diego. Really kinda disappointed w the trip advisor reviews in California. A majority are blown up. Anyway had a burger and a crab cake eggs Benedict. Both were good, but not amazing. The atmosphere is nice, but the food was a little disappointing.

This is a very busy place. But staff was very friendly and got our group seated very quickly. For someplace this busy, service was great.

My wife and I shared the "house" take on eggs benedict and a bowl of fruit. Produced fresh and packed full of flavour for a superb breakfast served by attentive staff very efficiently.
Will return on our next visit....

Great brunch spot in La Jolla, just be prepared to wait on the weekend. Their eggs benedict is yummy and get the green juice - so healthy and tasty.

Parking is a trick, place is small, the wait is expected, but the food is worth it all. Don't miss the pancakes, or the Eggs Benedict on Polenta, scrumptous. Pancakes are great, wished they had real maple syrup, so I opted for just butter instead.
