The breakfast here is great. We went twice on our four day trip. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and there are breakfast specials that are budget friendly. There is something for everyone on the menu.

Ate here for a business breakfast and the menu has many options. The Benedict and omelette selection is huge. Had the mama omelette with all the veggies! Was surprised there wasn't a chai tea latte offering. Had hot tea instead.

I had three breakfasts here during my trip (yes it's that amazing), biscuits and gravy, eggs benedict and buttermilk pancakes with bacon. Each time I loved it. Would I go back? You'd better believe it. There is a slight wait, but it's beautiful San Diego,...More
