Came for breakfast with 4 friends. Food was served quickly! We were all happy with the portion sizes for the prices. Our waitress was very sweet. Will definitely come back next time I'm in San Diego.

This is a popular place on 5th for breakfast, lunch/brunch of dinner. The service is diligent and the atmosphere is friendly. They food ranges from very good to just average depending on what you are having and when. Pizzas and pastas are usually very tasty.
