This is a small restaurant with some nice outdoor seating. Wife had the beet salad and I did the French toast which came highly recommended. Beet salad was very good but the French toast was unbelievable. Service was good.

Great location just off La Jolla Coves. Price level low, $ 14 for a BLT sandwich with salad. Free refill of coffee. Good service, welcoming staff. No wifi was a drawback.

Really enjoyed the French Toast here - and for $13 you probably should! Great way to re-energize after checking out the marine life!

The sangrias are delicious as is the food- a wonderful BLT and fish tacos! Ask for a table on the porch for a view of La Jolla- you won't be sorry!!
