Ok- the wait wasnt insane, it was pretty good for a sat at 10am about 25-30min (its often 1hr+ at snooze or hash house)

The place is a bit cramped and service was "eh" -they were busy but it still equaled lackluster service, but nothing crazy enough to keep away because of it

The food- my ham benedict was a bit salty, served with a giant slab of ham which is good for value but throws off the whole composition of the benedict dish- the hollandaise was not great-salty and watery and the bread became soggy but eggs were cooked nicely
My sig other got the hash-it was good but a bit too much blue cheese which overpowered the dish-coffee was fine.

for the cost(about 40 bucks) it wasnt worth it

so while its a fine choice, and if you just need a place asap and are in area it will by all means do fine. but for the money (and shorter wait) go to Parkhouse, its way better.

if you have time to wait: snooze is another great option, so is the cottage in la jolla

happy brunching!

Best breakfast and perfect before the zoo since its right down the street. Portions are HUGE. Split the corn beef hash which was the best!

This place was amazing!!! We made the stop before going to the zoo so we were able to walk off some of those luscious calories. I had a scrambler which was a huge serving of eggs w/ veggies and my husband ordered the blueberry/granola pancake which was scrumptious! Also they served homemade preserves that were awesome. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. Can't wait to go back to try again!

You'll have your breakfast or brunch needs taken care of well here. Great dishes and casual stop for American food. Get there early because there's always a line.

We were tired after several hours at the San Diego Zoo. Cafe on Park was just the ticket. I had the hot corned beef-swiss sandwich on sourdough. Darn good! And the bowl of cream of bacon-potato soup side was to die for. One in our group had the BLT....I just saw thick thick slices of bacon...yum. I got a taste of my wife's crab cake sandwich but she was not sharing those delicious looking onion rings. Attentive service and local patrons were good as well.
