Breakfast servings are huge - bigger than your head. This is an old style greasy spoon. Good solid food, nothing fancy. Come early to get a seat at the counter so you can watch the cook.

Stopped in here for a quick carnitas taco after a day of shopping. Delicious and fast! Getting a seat can be a problem during the peak hours. Be prepared to get your food to go.

At a conference a Hotel del Coronado. This place is an easy 20 minute walk. Small cafe with counter, back counter and a few outdoor seats. Large breakfast with fresh ingredients. Coffee is hot and the juice is cold. Good service and a great breakfast.

This is a small diner, that has been in business since 1929, the Esquer family has owned it since 1996, we have 20 seats and the counter surrounds a flat-top grill and vintage hood that was salvaged off a ship more than 100 years old. You watch your found being cooked by one person, depending on what cook you get your food will get to you fast or...not so fast but will always be delicious!. Weekend mornings are the busiest and we are open late, Friday and Saturday Nights till 4am.
