“My Favorite in Oceanside”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

I prefer normal diner style American food, and this is just that. Great menu selection with large portions, our waitress was kind and attentive, and they are busy.... which can only mean one thing! Everyone loves this place. The decor is fun and makes for a great place to go while you are on a relaxing Oceanside vacation. We will return.... for sure!

“Delicious Food for Both. Visits!!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

My sister and I decided to visit this place to see if the comment about the tasty bacon was accurate...It was! The restaurant decor is nostalgic; however, the food was delicious. The staff were very friendly and assisted in an enjoyable vacation. The owner came by the table and he, like his staff, was delightful. If you are looking for a wonderful place for breakfast, you MUST go to the Breakfast Club Diner. Absolutely delicious. While we visited another popular restaurant known for its breakfast, both my sister and I feel the Breakfast Club was best. Try the bacon!!!

“Friendly ... Food is Great ...”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

If you're into 1980's decor, this is the place for you. The walls are covered with it!

Breakfasts are huge, as are the lunch selections. The owner is always on site and makes a point of stopping by your table to check on things and chat a bit. Makes it feel a bit like home.

Weekends the place is jammed, with people waiting outside to get in. If you don't mind waiting, no big deal, but even better if you can hit them up during the week. Breakfast or lunch ... it's a winner.

“Back to the Future? No back for seconds!!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Came in with a party of six. Nobody had a problem figuring out what they wanted. Variety was good but not to much to burden the average diner customer. Place was clean , service was fast, and the staff was very attentive. With all that being said now lets talk about the 80s decor. Fun retro in your face museum of surfboard,skateboard, guitars and movie poster all from the 80s. Looks like you went back in time. Overall was pleasantly surprised our experience there.

“Cute spot; breakfast was good.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped here on the way to San Diego. We were seated right away on a Sunday morning in September. The service was very good; the server kept my husband's coffee full, which keeps him happy:) The food was pretty typical for breakfast; nice fluffy pancakes. We loved the 80's theme; the mural on the wall with 80's entertaiment icons surfing or on the beach was really clever.
