Don't worry about the line out the door it is worth the wait. Breakfast burrito is big enough for 2 people & you need to have the Komo potatoes. Eat outside and watch the surfers

Not only is the food delicious, but the view from the patio is gorgeous! They only accept cash so come prepared. Make sure you grab a cup of coffee at their coffee stand next door. The employees are friendly. Try the fresh squeezed orange juice!

This place opens at 7am and there's a queue. Fabulous breakfast burritos about $6/7 each. Great hot coffee all served out on the decking. Lovely way to start the day.

Located along the boadwalk on Pacific Beach and offers outside dinning with a spectacular view of the Pacific ocean. The food is prepared quickly, tasty and served hot.

This was a reasonably priced, delicous breakfast! I would highly recommend. The weather wasn't great the morning we ate there, but they do have outside seating.

I ordered the little breakfast with bacon and it was NOT little. The fried potatoes are loaded with cheese, onions and peppers. Quick, friendly counter service, good coffee and both indoor and outdoor seating. Fun location right by Crystal Pier. Only issue was under cooked eggs, so don't order over easy, go with over medium.

Arrived at 10:30am with a queue of 30 outside which we took to be a good sign. Constantly packed but quick service and your food arrives barely after you've sat down. Have to fight a little for your table and the coffee is terrible but they are my only complaints as the menu was fairly varied, the prices were great... More

This was just down the boardwalk from our hotel. Soooo glad we gave it a try! As a matter of fact, we ate there three out of seven mornings! Be warned though, don't plan on eating the rest of the day! The eggs are some of the best I've ever eaten. OMG, drooling just thinking about it. And if you... More

Great place! So much food for so little money. Very simply menu but good food and if you can eat your way through a whole breakfast burrito then you probably won’t need to eat again till dinner. The portions are very generous, the omelets are so good and the prices cannot be beat. Fast. Sitting on the patio watching the... More
