Stopped by on our way back from the safari park. Service was friendly, and the atmosphere was comfortable and cozy. Plenty of options on the menu, and the servings were a healthy size. Would return if I am ever in the area.

I fancy a great breakfast any time of day! Carlsbad has a pretty broad array to select from, but most restaurants are pretty pricey, as well as pretty touristy. When I'm on business and traveling alone, I like to find a place where the locals...More
