We enjoyed our breakfast here. Service was good. Food came quickly. Portions were large. It was a busy place even on a Thursday morn. Bacon was burnt; but tasted ok. There's a few options for vegetarians too.

Very good food! Pancakes were awesome. So much fun to get the trio. The sweet potato pancake with pecans and caramel sauce...yum! We are from Las Vegas and somewhat spoiled with food. This was a really good breakfast.

As a vegetarian, they have great options; soyrizo(soy chorizo), tofu, and more a la crate but you can also substitute these for meat (tofu or soyrizo tacos are a personal favorite). For my family and I, snooze is a go-to however if you choose to go around 9-10 the line gets very long. Ask what the pancake of the day... More

This restaurant features pancakes, but also a full breakfast menu. Be forewarned that there is usually a wait, and lines can be long and out the door for a relatively small number of tables. That said, the food and service were both terrific. Two of us had the signature pancake flight, where you can choose three different kinds of pancakes.

I really enjoyed my meal at Snooze, I want to be really clear about that. But I'm also a disciple of Ron Swanson, in that I like pretty, dark-haired women and breakfast food. They have a great selection of benedicts, but besides that there isn't anything you couldn't get elsewhere for less than a 1 hour wait for 2 people.... More

I'm not a pancake/breakfast person by any means but my sisters love this place. If you want to try the pancakes but can't decide, get the pancake flight. Ask for the pancake of the day as well. My son loved the molten chocolate one. I had the Sweet Potato and the Pineapple Upside Down. They're all delicious! Be ready to... More

Everything you've read and heard about this place is real - and even if you "low carb" it - you HAVE TO HAVE some of the pancakes!

Snooze is fantastic. Pricey as is most in San Diego but the food was great and the service was outstanding. Try the breakfast bowl. And expect to be full when you are finished. Not only ours but others' looked to be very big on portion size. The only down side was the wait. But there is a nice coffee shop... More

This is a cool and hip little breakfast spot right in the heart of Hillcrest. Their breakfast food is delicious if you can get there early enough. The line is always annoyingly long and out the door. The food is good, but it's not wait in a line for an hour good. It's also a little more expensive than some... More
