Food is ok. It's a very local place. Like the bar in Cheers. Regulars are greeted warmly. The food isn't outstanding buy it's not bad. Comfort food without any flourishes. I've visited 4 times and the woman owner is so friendly. The son doesn't have the same people skills.

My favorite is the Mariah 'blue burger' - juicy burger with blue cheese and onions. I've also had the bacon burger. I like to sit outside on the patio, which has sun umbrellas, on nice days - which, because this is in greater San Diego, are most days. Also, the service is very warm and friendly.

Visited recently with a friend for a Friday breakfast. At 8am was really quiet. Nice clean diner with indoor/outdoor seating. Service was very quick. Had an International omelette with hash browns and toast. I rate it good, but not great. My friend goes often and really likes it. Very reasonable prices and certainly worth a return visit.

Have gone here many times for breakfast with family. The staff are friendly and everyone feels welcome. They have a nice outdoor seating area. Their chicken fried steak breakfast is a hit with my family. Big portions and reasonably priced!

I use to frequent this place when it was in Carlsbad. Absolutely loved it. I was so happy to find out it is 7 minutes from where I live now. Wonderful staff, great food and great Bloody Mary's. Plenty of parking too. They have dinner specials on Friday nights only. I have yet to try it though. Good home cooking... More

Excellent breakfast!! I travel the country for work and constantly seek out top notch breakfast places. Mariahs is now on top of my list. The food was outstanding and combined with exceptional service makes this one of the best cafes I have visited.

We were looking for an out of the way restaurant so that we would hopefully be less likely to have a long wait. We arrived at the right time before the rush (i called first).Our server was outstanding, we were happy with the breakfast, didn't wait too long for our food, good value, friendly staff.

The Corn Beef Hash was Excellent! The bacon was crispy, the Biscuits and Gravy were not horrible, not great... better than most the breakfast places around this area. I did not order coffee here due to reading other reviews, however we did order a mimosa, I would not order that here again. The service was friendly, however it seemed that... More

I wasn't too impressed with this place. My husband and I decided to try something different... Especially after all the reviews. Place was full, luckily someone was leaving so we were able to sit right away. Tables are super small and booths are tight. Not quite fluffy friendly.. The busboy was friendly and attentive.. The waitress not soo much. We... More

Had Sunday brunch there with 6 girlfriends. Servings very generous, we shared the Benedict and were stuffed! Delicious coffee too. Excellent service out on the patio.
