“Yummy and huge portions”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Like everyone says, you can't visit San Diego and not check out Kono's. We had breakfast at Kono's every morning on our trip because we knew on our first visit no other place would compare. The line is a bit long, but moves quickly, and the staff have always been so friendly to see us when we finally got up to the counter, and never made us feel rushed. My hubby and I tried various items on the menu and were never disappointed -- everything was delicious and full of flavor. I was only disappointed that i couldn't finish my breakfast each day !! The portions are HUGE! I would have rather shared it but my hubby insisted on getting his own and getting it down :)

“Average at best”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Yes, the location is primo, but the food is mediocre and there are plenty of other beachfront dining positions. The breakfast burritos basically lacked flavor ad the coffee was weak. Nice staff though.

“Great Breakfasts”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Awesome breakfast while you sit right by the beach. Pay the 50 cents for the extra plate as you get enough to feed 2 people
