A walk on the beach, a beautiful sunset, and then this quaint establishment! The outdoor seating was perfect for our Halloween dinner. Our server was attentive, personable, and friendly. The food was delicious. We are so glad we found Crown City. We will be back!

Nice little bistro location on Orange Ave. Walking distance from several lodgings on the east side of the island. Staying at a hotel with a continental breakfast? Treat yourself to a mimosa and something yummy. The French toast doesn't even need syrup.

My husband and I ate two meals at the restaurant. The meals were good, but the strawberry Belgian waffles were exceptional! I would, however, suggest having the strawberry preserve/syrup and whip cream on the side to avoid sugar overload.

This is a small bistro that serves a very good breakfast and brunch. The eggs benedictine are delicious and the dish is very well served so are the waffles. They served a delicious homemade jelly.

What a great find here on Coronado Island. Looking for a nice, cozy place to have a great dinner with outstanding customer service, this is the place. My wife and I were in search of a local restaurant to enjoy for the evening and found it here. Will definitely go back again.

On our first trip to Coronado, we heard the Bistro was a favorite of the locals. We had to try it. Delicious breakfast! They serve other meals but we usually have breakfast there.

We reserved outdoor table in advance for dinner. The place is small and has indoor and outdoor sitting, outdoor is nicer to my taste. Friendly service, food is well prepared, not bad

This is a great breakfast spot. I always make sure to find something to slather the wonderful homemade jam on. The bistro is small but the food is large with flavor. A good consistent spot which is hard to find in Coronado.

Our grandkids LOVED the delicious belgian waffles; and we grownups were equally pleased with our breakfast selections. All the food was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. We liked it so much that we booked a table for the spanish food and wine tasting dinner, which did not disappoint. Wonderful flavors and wine pairings, in a festive holiday bistro atmosphere. Go...
