Had lunch on the patio and it was quite good...chicken panini and burrata salad. This restaurant is connected to the Coronado Historical Society so take a tour after your meal!

This is a nice little breakfast café. I sat outside, because it was pretty busy. But it was very pleasant outside, so that was a bonus! Good coffee and OJ! I had the Baja shrimp omelet. it was very good and hit the spot. The service was good too.

My wife and I visited in January and even though it was rainy / cool Tent City staff did a good job of making us feel comfortable. We enjoyed two meals in Tent City and recommend them if your looking for a nice place.

The food was OK and our waiter was nice enough, it just isn't anything special. They have wraps and salads and a good selection of sandwiches. They do give you large portions so If you have a big appetite, you will be appreciative of that. We had tortilla casserole and a chicken spinach wrap and they were tasty. The side... More

Service was not very good but we should have known because the restaurant was empty. It was only 6:30 pm. Food was extremely disappointing. Chicken Pot Pie had very little chicken. The burger was tough. The Brie was not very flavorful. The taco cassarol had very little flavor and not much meat. The only average thing was the spinach artichoke... More

Walking looking for a place to have have breakfast and stumbled upon Tent City. Head the breakfast special which was more than was enough food for me. Potatoes had just the right amount flavor, bacon was not overcooked or greasy, and the coffee was great. You could tell they chose the right beans because it was mild enough to drink... More

The house salad was delicious with quite a tasty dressing and add ins that took it far beyond the basic offering in most restaurants. The quiche was a generous portion and very well executed. The service was friendly and professional. Will definitely go again soon.

After a long day at the Zoo we popped into Tent city on way back to hotel. Service was very good and we had a roast beef wrap and turkey sandwich. It's fairly limited menu choices but better to do less well than overstretch.
