Have been there twice and will probably go again tomorrow. I had the breakfast sandwich today (English muffin with egg, bacon, tomato, mayo), very tasty. Yesterday had small plate with over easy egg, potatoes and toast, plus added three strips of crispy bacon for an extra $1. Hubby tried big plate 1 and 2, preferred the French toast. Very busy...

Don't worry about the line out the door it is worth the wait. Breakfast burrito is big enough for 2 people & you need to have the Komo potatoes. Eat outside and watch the surfers

Not only is the food delicious, but the view from the patio is gorgeous! They only accept cash so come prepared. Make sure you grab a cup of coffee at their coffee stand next door. The employees are friendly. Try the fresh squeezed orange juice!

This place opens at 7am and there's a queue. Fabulous breakfast burritos about $6/7 each. Great hot coffee all served out on the decking. Lovely way to start the day.

Located along the boadwalk on Pacific Beach and offers outside dinning with a spectacular view of the Pacific ocean. The food is prepared quickly, tasty and served hot.

This was a reasonably priced, delicous breakfast! I would highly recommend. The weather wasn't great the morning we ate there, but they do have outside seating.

I ordered the little breakfast with bacon and it was NOT little. The fried potatoes are loaded with cheese, onions and peppers. Quick, friendly counter service, good coffee and both indoor and outdoor seating. Fun location right by Crystal Pier. Only issue was under cooked eggs, so don't order over easy, go with over medium.

Thank kay k
