Cody's is such a delight! It is situated on a hill just a few steps from the beautiful grassy park of La Jolla Cove. It has the feel of a cute cottage with several tables on the patio, most have a view of the ocean....More

I see a lot of pictures of a lobster roll, but don't see it on the menu. Is there one?

When I was there in early August 2015, they did have it. The table next to us had one and it looked delicious!
Had the best cup of black tea there today. There were hints of orange. Please let me know where I can purchase these tea bags. What a great start to the day. Oh and the food was amazing.
