“A Must Miss - Meh”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

First off, fresh-squeezed orange juice, as depicted on the menu board, is actually from a plastic jug. So, fkcu that.
The breakfast burrito was average, nothing special, and the coffee was just meh.
Combined with the totally forgettable service, and Pipes Cafe is not worth your money or time. There have got to be better options.

“Great Deal”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you're simply looking for a HUGE plate of breakfast then Pipes is the place for you. Try the Big Breakfast French Toast or the Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches.

“Big portions of yummy food”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We are from San Diego and usually stop here for breakfast when we are headed to Disneyland. It's become sort of an unofficial, mini-tradition for us. We are a family of 5 and we can get two breakfast plates or two breakfast burritos and all of us are stuffed. It's a great cafe! Friendly people, laid back locals, and relaxing, casual atmosphere. I definitely recommend this place.
