We had breakfast there before heading to the zoo and we enjoyed the food. I got french toast and my wife got biscuits and gravy. Both were tasty and we got them very fast. The crowds came around 8, so get there early if you want to get in and out pretty quickly. The service was excellent and we were pleased with the overall experience. If you are expecting something new, exciting and funky, this isn't the place. If you want really good breakfast food, then this is a great little spot in Coronado.

This is a good place to eat, not great, but good. Pretty average breakfast food, nothing to rave about. The food seemed a little bland overall, but they do give a nice size portion. Service was good, could have been better, but we did go during a busy morning time. It appeared this is a popular place for the locals to go. They have a walk-up window outside that you can get food to go which is nice.

Clayton's is a no frills diner right out of the fifties. Good food, great service and fair prices. Always busy, but we had no problems getting a table or a seat at the counter.

The food is terrible. People go here for the feel of the olden days when diners were the goto restaurant. They have the little jukeboxes at the counter and a real old fashioned jukebox. There is always a line of tourists. So if you want a taste of the old days, then go, but don't expect a good food experience.

We enjoyed Claytons so much we had breakfast here a few times on our trip and used their quick service coffee window. We loved their peach mango smoothie. Their eggs are great, so are the pancakes, French toast, and donuts. There is always a line and a short wait during breakfast but it is worth it. The service is wonderful. No matter how busy they are the staff keeps up with everything . They take your order quickly and always check back with you, no matter how busy they are you never feel rushed. This place is not to be missed when in town. More of a locals place than a tourist location. Good prices, good food, good service.
