Good food. I was excited about their featured stuffed hash browns, but it was average. Fresh fruit and blueberry French toast was delicious! As was the San Diego Style. Service was a little slow. Another review said arrive early or you're out of luck. We arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday and there were a few people there. By the... More

Don's has been around for years - and it gets better and better. Their "Stuffed Hashbrowns" are a local well-known favorite. No matter what you order, you will get a large plateful of homestyle food - and they don't salt the food either. Good service, friendly people, and if you end up having to wait to be seated: the parking... More

Totally welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The place is pretty small but the portions are pretty big🙂. Staff was friendly and prompt. Dons had that "diner" feel.

We were visiting the area and met friends here on New Years Day. This place seemed like the only place open for breakfast/lunch and the wait time was around 45 minutes-which I don't think is normal (in their defense, we had 6 people). They are only open until 2pm and offer breakfast and lunch "all day." Not a very big... More

This place has it all. Friendly, attentive staff and EXCELLENT food. Their Bloody Mary's with bacon rock. I have taken many friends there and they always rave about the food. My personal favorite is their Beas Eggs Benedict with Avocado. It is always cooked perfectly.

The breakfast they serve is huge and wonderful! This is a local restaurant and loved by the locals! The staff is great and fun. I have never had a bad meal here and the prices are very reasonable. Only serve breakfast and lunch. And be sure to go hungry!

Get your mimosas here! You can get a bottle of Champs and juice for less than $17. The stuffed hash browns were enormous and delicious at an affordable price. Staff was very friendly.

Found this place online during my stay in Oceanside. Had a little bit of a wait on a Sat. Morning around 0930. Met by friendly staff and a clean restaurant. The person who took our order answered questions and ensured our order was correct. I ordered the stuffed hash browns. It was very good, bacon/sausage/grilled onions/cheese/hash browns/gravy. Needless to say... More

Less than a mile off the fwy worth the small detour. By the far the BEST hash browns I have ever tasted. I asked Henry for suggestions he put the perfect food in front of me. Great courteous, friendly service at a reasonable price. Wish they were in our town.
