Snooze is fantastic. Pricey as is most in San Diego but the food was great and the service was outstanding. Try the breakfast bowl. And expect to be full when you are finished. Not only ours but others' looked to be very big on portion size. The only down side was the wait. But there is a nice coffee shop... More

This is a cool and hip little breakfast spot right in the heart of Hillcrest. Their breakfast food is delicious if you can get there early enough. The line is always annoyingly long and out the door. The food is good, but it's not wait in a line for an hour good. It's also a little more expensive than some... More

I did a TON of research for our "Pacific Coast Highway" honeymoon and we dined here during the trip. I actually go to Denver frequently and Snooze has been on my list of places to try, but the wait in Denver is usually 2 hours plus. We were thrilled when SanDiego had a Snooze. Super funky decor, very clean, great... More

My family and I went here to eat a week ago. Its definitely one of our favorite brunch places. seriously, everything on the menu is so good. I had a burrito and it was amazing. The wait was really long, but it was totally worth it. Definitely a go to for local San Diegans.

Our high schoolers love this place, and the restaurant has been consistently good. They have GOOD coffee, and the "Flight" of pancakes is a great option because they get creative with pancake flavors and this is a good way to taste several of them at a time. The selection of eggs benedict prepared in different ways are also creative and... More

I have a Snooze near home in Houston and love the food here. I was excited to find one of these in central San Diego and was looking forward to having breakfast there. Unfortunately, not all Snooze are born equal. The setting of this particular Snooze is pretty awful. Yes: the natural light pouring in from the ceiling windows is... More

My daughter and I found Snooze am eatery last year before a Charger game. We needed Gluten free. SNOOZE AM EATERY was on the google search and had great reviews. I knew it was good when we pulled up and saw people waiting outside. There is limited street parking, but a flat $5 valet is also right there. We waited... More

Snooze has one of those menus that make it very difficult to choose. Seriously you could eat there every day for a week and not get tired of the menu. We had to do savory and sweet so we had Eggs Benedict - they let you do a combo where you can choose 2 different kinds. We did the classic... More

I wound up eating at Snooze twice because it was fantastic. I usually don't go back to the same place when traveling but this was well worth it. Service was great and their Drunken Monkey French Toast was incredible. Tried their hash and was very happy with that also. Highly recommend.

Thank Sharon D
