Disentered server and cold eggs Benedict. Nothing harder to swallow then cold runny eggs. Plus no alternative to potatoe side such as fruit. Should have stuck with Al’s diner.

Grabbed lunch here while visiting the area. The food and service were very good overall, and the prices were decent. They also offer off-street parking. I would recommend this place for good service and decent basic food with no frills.

Very crowded but fast turnover on a Wednesday 9:30 morning. Senior and kids discounts. Scrambled eggs were fluffy and light, nice French toast. Bacon and hash browns were also very good. Will definitely go again. Breakfast for 1 senior 1 adult about $20.00 without tip.

Simple restaurant in downtown Carlsbad offering great food at affordable prices. I had Eggs Benedict with avacado and it was delicious. Location is within easy walking distance of train depot, downtown shops and beach.

I generally don't go out to breakfast, because I make wonderful breakfast dishes myself, but my family insisted that I should take a morning off. So we walked into Don's, a very family-friendly, non-assuming, casual eatery. They had a varied menu with a senior-priced section,...More

It is a tradition there. But I think it's early like for breakfast. Call on Wednesday to confirm.
