We are staying at the Crown City Inn and decided to try the Bistro for breakfast this morning. This is a very small place and since it was raining the outside seating was closed. We managed to arrive early and were seated immediately. I ordered the crab Benedict and it was wonderful. The eggs were perfect and the hash browns... More

We went for years and the quality remains. Great food with specialty menus to try. Lunches and dinners as delicious as their wonderful Sunday breakfasts. Worth a try. Interior is cozy and outdoor tables have umbrellas for sunny days. Alright for Kids too.

While staying at the Crown City Inn , my husband, and myself ate at the Bistro. We ate breakfast there every morning. We liked that it wasn't your normal everyday breakfast food. Edgar was our waiter the first day, and Laura was our waitress the second day. Both very good, and funny. A little pricey for breakfast, but worth every... More

When on Coronado island and looking for a restaurant with french bistro capabilities, look no further. This place has it. Good honest food with very kind service. I think breakfast is good too. The line was pretty long, so be on time or reserve a table.

On a Friday morning because of high Trip Advisor rating drove over from Hyatt. Only 10 minutes drive. Put name in and was told 30 minutes wait. A hour and 20 minutes later got a table. Food was great but staff working hard to move people through a very small place. I would go back because of good food and... More

We stayed here and we're quite satisfied. The front desk workers were accommodating, and the room was fine in every way. Food was good at the bistro.
