This may be the best breakfast in La Jolla. We come here every year for the French toast and Chicken with Biscuits. It has a great view from the deck and its pet friendly. One of my favorite breakfast places of all time.

Very friendly and helpful staff and stunning views over La Jolla beach. I had sliders (crab and beef, separately) which were absolutely delicious. Had to be a quick meal ahead of a flight, but will definitely go back there!

Love the food. They are known for their breakfast and brunch. The crab cake benedict was amazing and the view of part of the La Jolla coast line on the expansive patio is picture perfect.
