Five Stars! Old fashioned service and great menu. Meals like the ones that use to be served instead of menus designed in NYC or SFO. Prices are very competitive with food factories close to freeway. I can recommend a detour off the highway to eat here. Reminds me of the Texas cafes of years past. For a little local information,... More

Found through a google search for Best Breakfast in Carlsbad... smallish, down home setting for amazing home cooked meal. I regret not trying the biscuits and gravy... but we did have a French Toast meal (complete with eggs and a side of meat) and a Kielbasa Scramble with Rye Toast. Let me just say, I usually avoid a carb heavy... More

Downhome cooking! Yummy breakfast, reasonably priced. A definite "don't miss" if you are looking for big portions and fast service.

Visiting friends that are locals - and this is a favorite spot for them. I had an avocado, bacon eggs benedict - was delicious! More food than I could finish and the waitresses are very attentive - hot coffee. Great food in a casual, comfortable atmosphere!

On a business trip and found this little jewel for breakfast. Nothing fancy but great food. I had the biscuits and gravy and really enjoyed it. Wish I would have had more opportunities to try more things on the menu because it looked like some great options. It was February when I visited but enjoyed breakfast outside. Waitress was very...

Restaurant is in downtown Carlsbad. Restaurant was great for breakfast, several choices to pick from. Restaurant is small so it doesn't hold too many people. Orange juice is fresh squeezed! I would recommend this restaurant.

You can eat like a local in Carlsbad. The food at Don's Country Kitchen in Carlsbad is exceptional. I highly recommend anything on the menu. I had the Bacon and Alvocado Stuffed Benedict, it was huge, and a bacon lovers dream come true. My wife had the Banana Nut Pancakes and we took home enough food for at least another... More

Dons country kitchen is situated in the quaint downtown area of Carlsbad. We had an outside table; several of the patrons had their well-behaved dogs at their feet. I had the stuffed hash browns, very tasty. I am a bit of a fanatic about hash browns; I like them extra crispy. I neglected to ask for extra crispy so they... More
