Yes there may be a line, but it moves fast. The price is right. TIP: places to sit outside across the street oceanside.

If you've ever seen Kono's, you know that there is always a long line to get in. Most of the time, I never had the patience to wait. Well, last weekend the line wasn't terribly long and I finally got to have breakfast there. I had a breakfast burrito about the size of my daughters head. Okay, that might be... More

Portions are huge so order accordingly. Everything tasted great from the simple pancakes to the extreme breakfast. Should have been five stars. Would have been five stars but they like so many others use paper plates and plastic ware.

This is the spot for breakfast! Definitely get there early as there's always a line (it's that good!). Very affordable and cash only! Enjoy breakfast looking right at the ocean! It's the best.

This is a wonderful little spot. I ordered the Little Breakfast and was surprised with how big it was, the employee just laughed and said, "You should see the Big Breakfast!". Great service!

A must for breakfast in PB. Beware, the line quickly wraps around the building and up the street as soon as they open. Great place to grab a breakfast burrito and eat on the beach!

I took two business friends for a quick breakfast around 9 am on a Sunday. We took an Uber from downtown ($20 each way) and had a great breakfast for $35. Always a good place to visit and eat. Great area to stay as well.

Yum! This little place on the beach has delicious food. Whenever we are in San Diego we always go to Kono's. Their breakfast burritos are so delicious and huge! And the potatoes, words cannot describe how incredibly good they taste. I highly recommend this place if ever you are on the beach.

This is the type of restaurant I hate to review because the food is excellent and they get crowded. Excellent breakfast burrito. My husband and I split one which is perfect size and reasonably priced. Even though they get a line, service is VERY fast. Great employees. Well organized!
