This place is a hidden gem. Absolutely the best service, great wine list and a fabulous rotational menu. We had the crab cakes - FAB ! Crab mac n cheese, chicken gorgonzonla and seared Ahi. All cooked to perfection.

Waiter was perfect amount of attention and time away.

Parking was a little interesting - mostly street. If you are staying on the island, its easy to walk and enjoy the town.

You could wear blue jeans or a ballgown, they had a wide range of clients/customers. There are 12 tables, most for 2-4, but they have a group of 10 while we were there and had no problems accomodating. Mix of patio and indoor seating - with warmers outside, but you don't need them in Coronado.

The restaurant (Crown Bistro) is pretty unique and right next to a small hotel (Crown City Inn) so if you blink you might drive right past it. It's a little out of the way but definitely worth the drive.

The restaurant is hands-down THE BEST breakfast in San Diego County. It is known for its great breakfast selection, Banana's Foster French Toast, Ricotta stuffed belgian waffles, Eggs benedict (and variations thereof), fruit preserves like mom makes, FRESH ingredients, Prompt, friendly service, Reasonable prices for what you get.

The little hotel is a quaint & cute with a friendly staff, a pool, free beachcruiser bikes, a guest laundry room, complimentary morning coffee, well kept grounds, and well within most budgets.

We stopped here toward the end of a week long visit to Coronado,
and we're so glad we did. The breakfast was outstanding, and reasonably
priced. Wonderful omelettes, waffles, and homemade preserves.
We only wish we had discovered it earlier, so we could have tried them
for lunch or dinner.
