“Crest Pasta”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I honestly dont care if Guy Fieri has been here or not, I was here first ! The crest pasta is to DIE for !! Thick yummy pasta with shallots, Canadian bacon and a wonderful cream sauce ♥♥
It is NOT for someone on a diet but if you get one and split it with your friend with a salad you will have less guilt, a MUST try item

“really pleasant restaurant”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We sat on the sidewalk for a lovely lunch. The food was imaginative and tasty, and the portions very generous. The sign said it was a "DDD" place, but it sure seemed a cut above!

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

We saw this place on Diner, Drive-ins and Dives and knew we had to try it on our recent visit to San Diego. Their menu is so extensive, if we had more time, we would have come back!! Our breakfast was just delicious. Service was great and will definately visit again.

“YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

EVERYTHING was amazing and I feel like the rating should be higher. Will be back in April for sure when in town. WE HAD YUCATAN TOSTADAS, FRENCH TOAST, AND HANGOVER OMELET. SO MANY OTHER ITEMS ON THE MENU I NEED TO TRY. FRIENDLY PLACE BUT TIGHT SEATING. Also have fresh squeezed juices. Tangerine was amazing. Please try this place out and enjoy!
