“Great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Went today for lunch. Mixture of dishes ordered, breakfast, burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches, everything was delicious. Service was quick, food tasty and fresh. The price was good too. They actually have a sign up saying that it has been 931 days since they increased their charges! There was a long line outside earlier i the day, but at lunchtime we walked straight in. Think it is more popular for breakfast. Would definitely go back whatever time of day.

“My favorite breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Been going here for years, and will keep coming back and bringing our friends. Look for the hidden tables that have ocean views. Coffee cart has great coffee.

“Go there now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Loved this beach side cafe! I would go there everyday if I lived in San Diego! The breakfast burritos are only $5+ and 2 people can easily split one!

“Worth waiting in line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Expect to wait in line and good luck finding a place to park BUT it is definately worth it! Inexpensive, HUGE breakfast, fast & friendly service.Seating inside is limited but additional seating available outside.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

There is always a line at this little place on Pacific Beach. Even as busy as it was, my family of 5 got served within 4 minutes of placing our orders. Portions are huge! I recommend the french toast. It's probably the best I've ever had. (Don't tell my wife)
Seating is very limited and crowded, so get it to go if you can. Breakfast on the beach is the best!
