Description: Cafe 222 has been the local dining institution for nearly 25 years in San Diego. This quirky-corner eatery has become famous from it's many appearances on the Food Network and for the owner who from time-to-time can be found wearing a waffle on her head. This shoebox-size of a restaurant has plenty of seating, offers indoor, street side patio dining as well as an upper garden patio area. Dogs and kids are welcome with well-behaved parents. Reservations are not accepted but if there is a wait to get in, it moves quickly and the staff passes out banana bread and coffee to those in line to make the wait more pleasant.

I went for the Peanut butter and banana stuffed French toast. It was very rich, but very good too. My wife had a frittata. It was excellent.

Was in San Diego waiting for a Mexican Riviera cruise and looked on trip advisor for a good breakfast. The restaurant was cutely decorated, had excellent service and creative and extremely tasty breakfast offerings. My wife and I enjoyed it very much especially it’s coffee.
