We ate here last June on a vacation, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since! We're coming again in a week and I can't wait to go back! I had Bella Benedict and Chilaquiles and they were absolutely astonishing! Wait staff was stellar! Young feeling, but still felt welcome with a family. One of the best experiences!

What can you say about a restaurant where everyone inside bends over backwards to please you and you aren't paying an arm and a leg for service. I went there for a late breakfast Tuesday, the day after President's Day. The food was great and the service was top notch. Oh and if you like coffee, like I do, their... More

My best friend and I love finding great breakfast spots when we travel. Hands down "Snooze" is by far our favorite Breakfast Restaurant. The "Pineapple Upside Down Pancake" is Heaven in your mouth. You have to dine here while in SD!

This place has quite the reputation, so come early or expect a wait of 2 hours. The staff are extremely friendly and will let you know when your table is ready. There is water and coffee available while you wait. I've tried the pancakes, eggs Benedict, and breakfast potpie. Everything is really tasty here. I enjoy their Mexican take on... More

We were in town for a few days and decided to try this place. After waiting an hour we finally sat down. We explained to our waitress that we had never been there and she was so helpful and helped us select our entrees. I explained to her I wanted 2 different pancakes and couldn't decide. She told me not... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here. Service was good. Food came quickly. Portions were large. It was a busy place even on a Thursday morn. Bacon was burnt; but tasted ok. There's a few options for vegetarians too.

Very good food! Pancakes were awesome. So much fun to get the trio. The sweet potato pancake with pecans and caramel sauce...yum! We are from Las Vegas and somewhat spoiled with food. This was a really good breakfast.

As a vegetarian, they have great options; soyrizo(soy chorizo), tofu, and more a la crate but you can also substitute these for meat (tofu or soyrizo tacos are a personal favorite). For my family and I, snooze is a go-to however if you choose to go around 9-10 the line gets very long. Ask what the pancake of the day... More

This restaurant features pancakes, but also a full breakfast menu. Be forewarned that there is usually a wait, and lines can be long and out the door for a relatively small number of tables. That said, the food and service were both terrific. Two of us had the signature pancake flight, where you can choose three different kinds of pancakes.
