This was really pleasant. Of course, a beautiful day, and a table on the patio was a great start. A relaxing place with a casual atmosphere. The ladies I was with had salads, which they liked very much, but I had the fish and chips,...More

Got to La Jolla about lunch-time, and the hotel recommended Cody's. We had a great lunch of Fish & Chips and Fish Tacos. The food was excellent. Good beer (unfortunately, none on tap), and Sangria, which was tart and refreshing. Sat outside on the deck,...More

This is the place to go for a super breakfast before you amble over to the Cove to watch the sea lions and seals. Portions are big, coffee is good. Go with any of the egg offerings and you won't be hungry till dinner. This...More

If you plan ahead for parking and get there early, it is worth it. My meal was awesome and my service was really good. I would go back and I would recommend it.

Great views and amazing brunch. Worth the 20 min wait. Try to get a table outside. You can see the water from some tables

I've been here 3 times already. Every visit was great! Good service, tasty food, super view. Love it! It was the biggest lobster roll I've ever tasted ;) Calamari are the best also!

Expensive for standard breakfast. No toast with breakfast. Had to ask for coffee refills. Not that busy when we went. Would suggest looking around.

This spot has become a regular stop for me and my pup on their dog friendly patio. He gets the scrambled eggs and I get the breakfast salad. The coffee is great and so is the view.

Loved dining on the patio facing the ocean. Had Fish N Chips for lunch, came with fries, onion rings and coleslaw with sauces. Loved the Blackberry Sage Spritzer. Had great service and the wait was a pleasant 5-10 minutes. Very dog friendly with dog water...More

When I was there in early August 2015, they did have it. The table next to us had one and it looked delicious!
