We enjoyed two breakfast here during our recent trip. The food is outstanding, and the service and atmosphere match the food quality. Fantastic way to start the day.

Best breakfast place we've found to date. Everything is super fresh. The "Amazing French Toast" really is Amazing! Little pricey but worth it

We love Cody's. It's a must for breakfast at least once whenever we're in La Jolla. Cute restaurant with nice outdoor seating and if you're visiting on a not busy day you can get the corner outdoor seat and have a beautiful view of the water. Excellent service and great food. I especially like the crab Benedict and the breakfast... More

The view was my highlight. On a cute street, you could see the ocean from our table on the patio. My mimosa & french toast were good, with a nice presentation. Servers were a little busy, understandable for such a popular restaurant. Sure, check it out.

The is in a great spot in La Jolla Cove, but the food is nothing to return for. The "American Breakfast" at $12 is only two eggs and potatoes, no toast fruit...a side of bacon is $3 so now your breakfast is $17 and still doesn't even include toast. The coffee is $3.75 a cup - I don't mind paying... More

This place is a gem. Excellent location with plenty of outdoor seating. Came on a Saturday around 10am and was pleasantly surprised to find there was a table available. The food was excellent and they have ginormous portions. Everything on the menu looked great. I opted for the eggs benedict which was perfect. No complaints. Come here then walk down... More

This quaint restaurant on the side of the street is a real gem!! Enjoy the outdoor seating and the view, and don't worry blankets are available in case you feel chilled! Each breakfast item we ordered was a vision as well as a tasty treat! The farmers omelette was loaded with fresh veggies and goat cheese, yum! The blueberry pancakes... More
