Description: At Tent City Restaurant, we want to make you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. Our name celebrates Coronado history and we strive to honor that name by providing residents and visitors with the same warmth that John D. Spreckels provided Tent City guests back in the year 1900. Both our unique location in the heart of Coronado’s beautiful Orange Avenue, and our menu selection inspired from different tastes and styles make up for the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner setting.

“Good breakfast in a great spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Five of us stopped for a late breakfast on a weekday (like there's a difference in Coronado!). We'd been here before and again it was very good. The only thing that could have been better was the coffee. Three of us agreed it was bitter and not up to the level Tent City should serve. We'll be back anyway!

“People watching and great drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Tent City is always a must stop for us when visiting Coronado. The outdoor dining here is a perfect location to sit, sip, and watch the world go by.

“Great breakfast and outdoor seating - perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Stopped here on the way to the beach as it looked inviting - glad I did! Baja Shrimp omelette was delicious with just the right kick from the jalapenos, setting me up nicely for the day. Recommended!

“A very nice and light lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We entered this restaurant while wandering around Coronado. It looked nice and tempting and sometimes we let our emotions rule the road. We were right! We had Thai chicken wrap and crab and shrimps sandwich, with side of hand made chips. Light, good and delicious. Acceptable espresso at the end. Nice and friendly staff, definitely good.
Should you happen to pass by, just make a stop there.
