The food is always amazing and Jennie and her staff are so nice and welcoming! My kids love the crazy pancake. It's loaded with bacon sausage and chocolate chips and it's as big as a pizza! My favorite is the padre sandwich!

We found this restaurant via a Groupon. We read reviews before purchasing the Groupon, as we had visited Oceanside before but had not heard of Jennie's. What a nice find! The first time we went for breakfast my husband had the Shrimp Eggs Benedict with home fries, and I had the Fresh Benedict- avocado, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms with home fries.... More

Sounds like they didn't plan for a holiday weekend. I can't wait 40 mins for eggs. Had to leave. I'm a resident and people ask where to for breakfast. Not sure about this one.
