“A Poway Institution downgraded”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

When Cullys moved from its original location, it lost the charm and cozyness it had. The food is still good, but not the best, but the atmosphere is disapointing now

“Great breakfast, nice people, great service”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We had a great breakfast here. The coffee was great, my friend loved his French Toast and I asked for my bacon well done and it was perfect (strangely, this has proven exeedingly difficult to accomplish at every restaurant I've been to for breakfast). I had the Blueberry Pancakes and they were just slightly dry/cake-like in the center, but still good. Portions are also good sized.

Of note is the service here. You cannot find better service at a 5-star fine dining establishment. Our waiter was the grandson of the owner. He was beyond fabulous, anticipating our every need all while being expeditious, very friendly and personable (which I find is very rare these days in the early 20's age group!).

The atmosphere is that of a small, family diner. It is clean and neat, but not fancy. I don't believe fancy it what they are striving for anyway. It's perfect for what it is.

Overall it was a great visit! Loved it!
