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.

The restaurant was quite crowded on the rainy Tuesday morning. I order the Don's stuffed hashbrown dor my brunch. The waitress was kind of impatient. The hashbrown taste good in the beginning. After a while, you would feel that's just okay. I'm not sure why...More

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