Cully's has been in Poway forever or at least the 35 years I have been here. I love breakfast diners, the kind that are scarce and disappearing. The family diner, that is Cully's. Good food, good atmosphere and a value. Their bangers are awesome. Chorizo equally good. One of my favorites.

The restaurant could do with a remodeling. Old, smelly and gray atmosphere. They sat us down at a table that was dirty and so waw thr silverware. During the meal we didn't got a good service from any of the waitress and we needed to ask them to come every time we needed something (creamer, coffee, the check 3 times)... More

Been coming here for breakfast since 1984. Although, this is their 3rd location since then. Mark has been providing warm service with a smile every single time. Breakfast is always consistent always delicious, always fast. Nothing fancy, no great stretches of culinary re-imagination, just great home cooked food.

One of the biggest problems one encounters is finding a great breakfast spot when moving to a new area. My quest has ended. Enjoyed the pork chop special and the corned beef hash, my go to gauge for breakfast. Eggs both times were perfectly done. I have had breakfast on every continent, except Antartica, and this place is near the... More

Wonderful, friendly and attentive staff. Unfortunately, mediocre breakfast food in a dingy room. There are better choices.

Depressing decor, tired service, lackluster food. Prices are no bargain. Looks like a loyal crowd of folks who are satisfied with mediocrity or even less.

If you are real hungry this is the place to go for huge portions (enough to share) and decent prices. Only open for breakfast and lunch but very good.

Cully's has been a fixture in Poway for many years. Mark, the owner is a great guy and strives to give his customers what they want. The interior and decor are nothing to write home about, but the food and service is why locals continue to eat here year after year. Certain times of the weekend, usually early will be... More

This is a small, homey restaurant with friendly waitstaff, fresh food made to order and good coffee.
