Tent City is in a prime location on Orange Avenue. From the nice outdoor patio you can watch Coronado life all around you. We especially enjoy their nutritious and delicious smoothies for an afternoon pick-me-up and their breakfasts.

We ate breakfast here on two of the mornings that we stayed in Coronado. The food is fresh & healthy. The veggie omelet (not on the menu) was very good and my kids loved the waffles covered in fresh fruit.

A good spot for breakfast in Coronado. This midwesterner would characterize the food as "Californian" with lots of sprouts and avocado. Food was good. Service was very slow, which was unfortunate since the restaurant was not very busy.

Average food for the price. Quiche was tasty but small portion with only choice of salad for the side. BLTA was good.
