We stopped on our way to Coronado Island for brunch. The food, service and ambiance is wonderful. My hubby says they make the best scrambled eggs and he loved the apple chicken sausage. I had ricotta pancakes, a little dry but tasty.

Very nice lunch at a comfortable and friendly cafe. Very good service. Fresh ingredients with healthy menu. The steak salad, falafel appetizer and fresh chicken salad were very tasty.

Good food and wait staff. The place just has a nice vibe about it. Also very pet friendly. Lunch starts at 11:30, so if you are after breakfast get there earlier.

A favorite for breakfast or lunch for many years; we’ve been away 3 years and recognized some staff and the food was still worth writing about. We had a short wait at 1 pm and it was with it. Summer stone fruit salad was excellent...More

Easy to get to, parking was simple enough ( I might have gotten lucky tho') The menu has deliciously tempting choices, the quinoa salad is genuinely one of the best I have ever had! I would literally drive back to California just for this quinoa...More

We loved the atmosphere of this place. It seemed like just the sort of place we like to go. But we found the experience underwhelming. First, the service was extremely slow. I'm not sure if we just caught them on a bad day but we...More
