Each year when we visit the San Diego area, we have breakfast or lunch at the Coffee Cup. The food and service are great. Our table had yogurt with fruit and granola, blueberry pancakes, egg omelets with sides and cappuccinos.It is a favorite among locals and I can see why. It is in the center of the La Jolla downtown... More

Coffee Cup restaurant is a real gourmet experience. I do not eat eggs so when my daughter told me that I could substitute tofu for eggs in most every dish. There was a small wait for an inside table but the meal was worth the wait on a Sunday morning. We ordered the Chrizo Scramble and Enchiladas both with tofu.... More

We ask for the Jalapeño, Avocado, Bacon special although it is no longer on the menu. So yummy! Tried other places but always come back to the Coffee... More

Note that the portions are huge...quality of food is excellent. We are here two times on our trip and were more than satisfied both times, The only odd thing was the way they prepare their French toast...doesn't appear to be battered - looks like they just heat up the cinnamon bread on the griddle...it was good, but not French Toast....
