Wilma's has occupied a location that has seen more than a few restaurants come and go over the years. This one seems to have stuck. It has long lines on weekend mornings for breakfast, which is their best meal.

I ordered the huevzos rancheros, it was delicious. I can’t eat real spicy and the Wilma’s sauce was so tasty. They do have a spicier if you wanted. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It’s cute and could be someone’s home.

It’s hard to beat the picturesque Balboa Island bridge and street where Wilma’s is located. Wilma’s has a down home breakfast that we always enjoy. Nothing fancy but cute and fun. Good home cooking! Pancakes, eggs, waffles and more. Love it:)

You have to park in the Main Street (Marine Avenue) or in the nearby streets. It can be a bit challenging especially during weekend.
