Great cheap breakfast. Loved the pancakes. Get there early they open at 7 and get busy fast.

“Great Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Kono's is one of my husband & I's favorite place to go for breakfast in San Diego. The food is great, cheap & huge portions. We usually share a breakfast & both leave satisfied & full. Their Egg Scramble is the best as is the burritos. Oh & the Kono potatoes are soooo good! Never had lunch there, but I'm sure it's probably good too. There's almost always a line. It's in a perfect location in PB to be able to sit outside, people watch on the boardwalk & have the ocean right there. Staff are very friendly.

“Local Diner - A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Best breakfast burrito!
Be prepared to stand in line, order at the counter, and they will bring it to you.
You can sit inside, but outside with a view of the ocean is better.

“Breakfast Burrito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Great place to wait in line for a breakfast burrito. There's been a line every time I've gone, but you can go up and grab a menu to be completely ready when you get inside. Also, I've never had a problem getting a table (they have inside and outside seating). I recommend their #1 through #5. :-)
