Having eaten at as lot of breakfast places around the country, the main thing you want to look for is the freshness in your meal...I know you want that in every meal but you can get away with it during other times of the day...More

This is a favorite spot to bring visiting relatives and friends. Great menu and food is consistent. Service has gone downhill the past couple years. Seems the crew would rather talk with each other than take care of guests. Not sure who is supervising. With...More

Tried to find a breakfast spot and went where all the people were. Glad we did! The pancakes, French toast, and hash are great. Weird thing is they close at 3 so no dinner here.

I had strip steak and eggs for under $10, can't find that anywhere!!! What a convenient place to have breakfast. Close to my hotel when I want something cooked to order for me. I was checked on often by the staff, which I appreciate.

This is a local icon that is always busy and serves a very good breakfast and very quickly. Great for very casual family fun.

Tuna Melt with sweet potato fries and a pickle. Sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a beautiful San Diego Sunday. Lunch after 2pm is quiet and service was fine.

We were very disappointed with Broken Yolk. Our eggs were overcooked, the pancakes were tasteless, and the bacon very puny. While it is not expensive, you get what you pay for--which in this case is not much value.

Food was pretty good, but in my opinion it's hard to screw up breakfast foods. Good selection. I ordered a Diet Coke and their serving is a ginormous cup, that I was able to take the balance in a to go cup. Quite frankly it...More
