Great food, but always crowed I guess that's a good sign that the food is good. Plan to be there before you're starving!

Sunday breakfast with the family. 13 adults and 4 children. Got there at 8:30. Did not have to wait long to be seated. Food was great. I suggest get there early. By the time we left there, there was a wait.

My wife and I visited Aunt Emma's Pancakes in Chula Vista the other day and had an OK meal. We had not been to Aunt Emmas for a a few years and the taste and presentation of our meals were not the same.

The food is quite good, service is personal and welcoming, the only minor difficulty is parking in the area.

You will walk away satisfied appetite but they seem to be quickly overwhelmed by the volume of customers. We went there for 3 breakfasts because it was close to our hotel and each time we watched the waitresses running from seating, getting orders, bringing food, bussing tables, etc. This would be okay except three times in a row the order...

The place has been around for a long time and there is always a line on weekends (that should tell the story) I have never had bad service or poor quality food. Prices are reasonable and I think most people would enjoy the food.

I brought my friend here for her birthday because Aunt Emma's has a great reputation for breakfast. She ordered a crepe and I ordered blueberry pancakes.
