This may be the best breakfast in La Jolla. We come here every year for the French toast and Chicken with Biscuits. It has a great view from the deck and its pet friendly. One of my favorite breakfast places of all time.

Very friendly and helpful staff and stunning views over La Jolla beach. I had sliders (crab and beef, separately) which were absolutely delicious. Had to be a quick meal ahead of a flight, but will definitely go back there!

Love the food. They are known for their breakfast and brunch. The crab cake benedict was amazing and the view of part of the La Jolla coast line on the expansive patio is picture perfect.

We had lunch outside so we could see the ocean. Cody's offers a nice kids menu which is the reason why we chose to try it out. The service was slow and the food was ok.

Cody's served very well executed small dishes. We loved the sliders trio and the meatballs. I wish they would offer more options on the menu, and more vegetables. Wine list is pricey. Atmosphere is very pleasant and service is friendly.
