Lunch the Danger Burger or fish tacos. The... More

We had been to Beach Break on previous trips and looked forward to returning. Beach Break Café did not disappoint. The service is very friendly, quick and the food is excellent. We went back again two days later.

They had both breakfast and lunch items available. We had poached eggs which are not always available and they were done just right. Our server was friendly and patient with our... More

Every time I am home in Oceanside I have to have Breakfast at Beach Break! Big Lines to get in on the weekends but definitely worth the wait. Excellent Food, Great Service, Fair Prices. Homemade Corn Beef Hash, Awesome Omelettes, Mango Coconut Pancakes, Best Biscuits and Gravy etc....Gary and Zell and Their Staff are the Best!!
