If you're looking for atmosphere this is not your place but if you're looking for good food and lots of it try Izzys. Small country cafe. Great service and friendly people. Parking is limited on site but plenty close by. A must visit location.

We took a suggestion to stop in at Izzy's for breakfast. It's a gem of a place with good food and efficient staff. Prices are a little high but the food is well worth the bump-up from McDonald's. Everything was fresh and hot. Highly recommended.

For us, a good choice for breakfast or lunch after golf. Large portions and usually have a take home box.

This is a true gem in El Cajon. Great for Breakfast, large portions, good coffee, nice service. It was like stepping back in time, to a diner of the past. I had eggs and potatoes and everything was great.
