I made a list from tripadvisor of places to eat while on vacation in San Diego. Kono's Cafe was one of them based on the ratings. Our family and I went there for lunch after my granddaughters surf lessons. We all ordered different hamburgers from the menu,and they we gooood! The beef was freshly ground and cooked just right. They don't sell beer there but you can go next door to the pub for that. The people working at Kono's were very friendly too. I will go there next we visit SD. Thanks for all your reviews.

This little surf shack turns out great food in a fun location. We eat breakfast here every time we are in San Diego. The staff is friendly, the patios overlook the ocean, the food is tasty. However, they are stingy with the jam, so if you like more than a thin smear on your toast, do ask for an extra packet.

Delicious food for a fabulous price!! Long line served quickly. Short wait for our great breakfast. Ate on the deck overlooking the ocean. So glad we ate at Kono's!

This place is great. Don't let the line deter you. It moves quickly. Nothing fancy. Order at the counter. Paper plates. Plastic silverware. But, the food is great and the portions are ample. Some of the best scrambled eggs and french toast I've ever had. And the location, eating outside by the beach makes it taste even better. Prices are very reasonable, too.

Stumbled upon this place during a recent trip to Pacific Beach. We arrived within 10 minutes of it's opening on a Sunday morning and there was already a line out the door to order. After a few minutes in line we ordered breakfast from a very friendly gentleman who answered questions with a smile. They have two great patios in addition to the inside seating, and within a few minutes we found a corner oceanfront table. Our breakfast was delivered promptly and we were amazed at the portion sizes. All three of us could have shared the "little breakfast". Can't imagine what the "big breakfast" looks like!
We ordered coffees and a smoothie from the outside coffee bar and were pleased with everything we ordered. There's a reason this place is so busy. Great food, great coffee, great view and a friendly staff. We will be back!
