When on Coronado island and looking for a restaurant with french bistro capabilities, look no further. This place has it. Good honest food with very kind service. I think breakfast is good too. The line was pretty long, so be on time or reserve a table.

On a Friday morning because of high Trip Advisor rating drove over from Hyatt. Only 10 minutes drive. Put name in and was told 30 minutes wait. A hour and 20 minutes later got a table. Food was great but staff working hard to move people through a very small place. I would go back because of good food and... More

We stayed here and we're quite satisfied. The front desk workers were accommodating, and the room was fine in every way. Food was good at the bistro.

I can't ever get enough of this little gem on out Crowned City! My absolute go to is the crab benedict with very berry french toast for dessert, but you absolutely cannot go wrong!

My daughter and I had brunch here on a Sunday. The traffic getting there was heavy as it was all over town. Amazingly, we found a place to parallel park a few steps from the bistro. You can sit inside and dine but it is cramped and a little dark, so I would opt to dine out front in the... More

Have only been for breakfast which is always delicious with a nice range of menu items. Crown City Bristro is small so there can sometimes be a wait but it is worth a little bit of time to enjoy a great breakfast.

I stopped in the Crown City Inn & Bistro for breakfast a couple of weeks ago while I was on Coronado for business. OMG the Strawberry and Banana French Toast was the best I had ever tasted. The staff was ever-present to fill my coffee cup (and the coffee was very good). I was seated immediately and was able to... More

We were staying at the adjacent inn and decided to give the restaurant a try. The first surprise was that there wasn't a wine list despite the menu inviting you to ask for it. The waiter, almost surprised to be asked for it, reeled off a few bottles of wine and beer leaving you little or no time to decide.... More
