I don't know why this place gets such rave reviews. It is very small and very busy so we ended up sitting at the counter. That was okay except that we had a view into the kitchen. Wonder how they get an A rating by...More

Love the big portions and the coffee cake is simply amazing! Omelettes are light, fluffy and a meal in itself...loved this place so much, we came here multiple times during our week out here.

The food was good and plentiful. So good, in fact, that we will go there again tomorrow morning! The price was good, too. All-in-all, one of the best breakfasts we have had. Highly recommend it to you!

We tried several times to get into this establishment but line-up was impossibly long. We finally got in and found out that there are 8 or 9 tables and about 10 mushroom seats at the counter and 4 or 5 tables on the sidewalk. So...More

Stopped by for a late breakfast, and had the chilaquiles (sp?) at the counter. Delicious! Fresh, homemade, and just the right amount of food. Great cup of coffee too. Will happily go back the next time I'm in Carlsbad.
