The meal was whatever, the prices were so high! You can get a donut anywhere for 50 cents. Here each donut is 2.50! The food isn't that great, the prices are way to high. I think the only good thing about this, is the location. Nice and tropical, and the service is good too, but I have lived here for... More

Very nice location, but average service. They do not serve soy milk. The espresso was watery, three times larger than a proper espresso. Breakfast is ok, but coffee lovers, this is not a good place for you!

I went here with my son on Sunday morning, mostly because it was close to our resort (Loews) and there aren't a ton of breakfast options on Coronado. But I'm very glad we went! I didn't catch the owners name, a Greek lady. She is the chef as well, and incredibly kind. She checks on all the tables, and genuinely... More

The service was very good. The service was great. The food was also great. The best thing is the outdoot seating and the view.

Service isn't the fastest nor the most flexible. Food was ok, nothing really special, at least for the price paid. The view on the small canal is nice though and it's more or less the only breakfast place in the area...

My husband found this place while I was running a Ragnar here in San Diego... He said the place was so amazing we absolutely had to go for breakfast before we left town.... The food was 5 stars and the owner is such a sweet amazing lady! We had so much fun and were absolutely stuffed when we left. Mimosas... More

Hanan, the owner, chef, and waitress loves her job (all of them) and it shows. Had breakfast and lunch there. Fresh simple food, nice setting to sit outside on the canal. The Island Omelet (ham and cheese with avocado) was delicious. My wife thought the grilled cheese was the best she ever had (had avocado in it as well). For... More
