we were looking forward to going back to Brockton Villa for breakfast, as we enjoyed this place very much on previous trips. The ambience was wonderful as always, cant beat the view, but the food was very much lacking. We had breakfast and it was fairly mediocre, scramble eggs tasted pre made and toast was burned. I doubt we'll be back

I had their signature french toast with fruit. It was very good though the orange flavor wasn't really detectable in my dish. My husband had the pancakes. I tasted them and they were really not worthy to be on the menu in our opinion. Just fluffy flour nothings - no flavor, nothing special. I had read about the 1920's era abalone shell-faced fireplace and seeing it in person was very cool. You really can't get the full impact from a photo. The coffee was quite strong and acidic - not smooth or mellow. No espresso drinks. Nice ambiance. Eat outside on the deck, inside or on the porch. Service was very quick and friendly. They have the recipe for the french toast available for you to try at home and you'll find it also on Pinterest. I would definitely return. My husband wasn't as enchanted.

This cute restaurant sits just above La Jolla Cove and offers very tasty food. The fruit, bacon, salmon, and etc were all very good. The staff was friendly as well.

This is a must stop if visiting San Diego. Try and wait for an outside table the view is worth the wait. The food here is delish! The French toast is their signature dish which is great! Today I had the smoke salmon Benedict which I loved. Come eat and enjoy the view
