Food is amazing, service is friendly and efficient. Parking was a little tight. We are there during the week, and we got a table right away. We heard it's pretty busy on weekends. This place is a must go for our next visit!!!!

Our family of six enjoyed breakfast in the cafe. The staff was very friendly, the food was great. Portions are large so share or be ready for leftovers. The vanilla coffee was really good!

There is usually a line but it is worth it! The food is great and what's unique is that they offer the best cinnamon cake as part of your breakfast! It is a generous portion, warm, very tasty and drizzled with icing. Don't miss it!

There will be 32 family members staying at THE STRAND OF PARADISE in Oceanside next March 2017. We need a place to go to breakfast before our drive back to Arizona on March 15th (Wed.) 2017. Would you be able to accommodate that many of us!? It is my husband's (the Grandpa of these 22 grandchildren) 66th birthday!!! Ü

Make sure you get a reservation, they have lots of room but would need time to prepare for a large group. I didn't see a party room, but double check.
