Good food, neat outdoor atmosphere. Enjoyed the fish and chips. A little light batter and very flaky. Wife had chicken sandwich. Could have done without the slaw, but rest was good. Kids enjoyed their dishes.

Quaint cafe, and staff was very friendly. The food was good; drinks were pricy. We ordered seafood, of course. I enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere, taking in the sites and sounds of La Jolla.

Excellent food. They specialize in breakfast foods but we chose the burger and chicken Caesar salad. All natural ingredients. $16 for a burger. Fresh fries. Great salads.
