We went there for breakfast before an event. I was a bit concerned if we would be served quickly enough but it worked out great. We were in and out in 45 minutes and didnt feel rushed. The sopes benedict were delicious! Attentive service.

This was my least favorite place in San Diego - the food here is just cheap and mass produced, and the customer service is even worse. Will definitely not return or recommend to anyone.
