If you want hospitality, warm atmosphere, good coffee, fresh baked crumbly coffee cake, any kind of eggs you can imagine and great meats like country sausage, virginia baked ham, crispy thick bacon, this is the place for you. Nobody does Hash Browns like they do too. Crunchy brown on the outside and soft potato inside. Ask for Kristi and you... More

The place was packed but it moved fast. They offer people coffee while they wait. Great breakfast! The California omelette was wonderful!

I've been coming here for at least four years and hands down this is consistently the best breakfast place in town! From the amazing food to the fast service and nice staff, it's no surprise why you'll always see this place very busy!

We Love and food and ambience! Everyone does, which makes this restaurant a must stop for breakfast, brunch, etc. However, lineups are commonplace. So, how to beat the wait? Takeout!! Order what you want and hit the park or the beach, the Marina or The Strand! In and out in 10-15 minutes which is typically 15 minutes less, at a... More

Probably the most popular place in Oceanside for breakfast any day of the week! Expect to wait for a table on weekend mornings but it's always worth the wait. Perfectly decorated with Surf memorabilia, old surf magazine cover shots under the table glass, surfboards on the roof, collectibles and signed pictures on the walls! Awesome spot for a good meal...

I've eaten breakfast here several times. Everything is great. The portions are ample. Everyone I've met at the Beach Break is super friendly. The prices are reasonable. I have absolutely no complaints about this place.

Great food, kind people. There was a wait but it wasn't too bad. Food came out quick and it was really good, plus breakfast comes with coffee cake!

We had a nice time coming here for breakfast on a family trip. The best part was the atmosphere and pleasant service. On a Friday morning at 10am there was about a 15 minute wait for our table. We all thought the food was ok but nothing special. Have been to lots of breakfast cafes in other places with similar... More

They are rated as one of the best in this area so we stopped by for a brunch while traveling from San Diego to Newport Beach. The place which is only open from 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM was packed but the wait was truly worth it. We reluctantly accepted the first available seats by the counter but was pleasantly... More

My wife and I enjoyed this wonderful local café for breakfast several times during our 40th anniversary visit to the Carlsbad area. The servers were prompt and courteous and the food is just outstanding! The coffee cake is the BEST we've ever had anywhere (including mom's – sorry!) , the massive omelettes are delicious with all kinds of options, and... More
