Love the fact that the whole menu is available all day. Their french toast is awesome! Seating is ample and quite comfortable. We were only disappointed because they were out of T-shirts! Haha.

It is a small place with lots of young people enjoying themselves. We thought the menu had some great options. The staff was fast and polite. We each enjoyed our picks and had a relaxing meal looking toward the park in La Jolla.

We met Adam, Amanda, and Bison at dinner at The Shack where they told us about Cody's. We went with our kids for breakfast the next morning and it was great. It has a beautiful view overlooking the ocean park and the blackberry sage mimosa...More

I see a lot of pictures of a lobster roll, but don't see it on the menu. Is there one?

When I was there in early August 2015, they did have it. The table next to us had one and it looked delicious!
Had the best cup of black tea there today. There were hints of orange. Please let me know where I can purchase these tea bags. What a great start to the day. Oh and the food was amazing.
