“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stopped here on our way down to San Diego. The decor is great, the staff is very friendly, and the breakfast was very good. There was a wait for a table, but there is a good amount of seating in their waiting area. The also ask if you want coffee when you give them your name, and you are given a mug to use with the coffee machines in the waiting area. The staff also kept my husband's mug filled once we were seated, which he was very happy about:)

“New location is great”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This picture doesn't reflect the new restaurant they moved into down the street from their original location. The new one is spacious and the food, as always, is delicious. Very friendly servers too. Nice place to meet for lunch or breakfast.

“Plenty of food, great price, lots of boards!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a great beach style diner, old inside but in a very nice building on a corner, with parking, in Oceanside on Carlsbad Drive/PCH. Breakfasts are fantastics, going from 4 egg omelets to 3 egg scrambles, to pancakes, french toast, waffles, and of course, biscuits and gravy. All are worth trying. I had the chicken enchilada scramble (Scramblatta) and it was very good with all of its accompaniments. Price is fantastic. If there is a line, which there is on Saturday and Sunday morning, it moves pretty fast unless you are a large party (over 6). They only have a few tables to put together for 7 or more, so you might have to wait a bit longer, but it is worth it! Oh, and if you like surf boards, surfing memorabilia, or skate boards (old timers), they have it all!

“WOW!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

What a downtown gem in this beach city, and not a place I frequent whatsoever...BUT...This café has stellar service and GREAT food and is reasonably priced. I can't imagine ANYONE not liking it. I had a vegetarian sandwich that was one of the best ever...Located on a corner with ample parking and family friendly for sure, though I just dined with a girlfriend. A must do if you're in this area...
