    OMG French Toast is to DIE for! Had to wait 75 minutes for a table but totally worth it! Waited by the bar drinking the complimentary coffee. The bacon, corned beef hash... EVERYTHING was AMAZING!

    Only week day 8a breakfast in Hillcrest I found. Plenty of bar seating with comfy chairs. Parking is tough north of University so grab a spot just south and walk the 1/2 blk. Plenty of spots there.

    Popular and good vibes. a Loud, young breakfast spot. Great food and nice staff in a nice vibrant area of the city. Good place to stop if heading to SanDiego zoo as well.

    Come early! We arrived at 830 am and still had to wait 25 mins. Bar seating is available though. We really enjoyed the cinnamon pancake, the chai tea, the pot pie, and early harvest Benny

    Snooze in Hillcrest is one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Not only was the food amazing, but the atmosphere was great. Our waiter was wonderful. If you're in San Diego you can't miss it!!

    That sweet potato hash, with sunny side eggs, and (in-house) habanero salsa was ridiculously tasty!!! The coffee here was really good too! A very satisfying experience. Glad we stopped by!

    Seriously the best pancakes I've ever had ever. Definitely get the pancake flight which allows you to try multiple flavors of pancakes! They also let you choose two Benedicts on one plate! Perfect!

    Cinnamon roll pancakes are no joke. All pancakes can be made gluten free . Breakfast tacos are HUGE...and amazing. Also try the breakfast pot pie (not GF)...tip: recipe on the wall by bathrooms :).

    Free coffee while you wait. Pancake flights are the best way to try three amazing pancakes. The upside down pineapple pancake is my favorite. The OMG french toast is also amazing.

    Asking for half portions of two dishes is an excellent way to go. Amazing food and awesome service with a smile. So many delicious dishes it's impossible to pick a favorite.

    This popular spot for breakfast and brunch looks like it belongs in The Jetsons. The vast menu includes bennies, super-sweet pancakes, and lighter choices.

    Try the delicious OMG French toast. It's sweet so I'd recommend sharing. I ordered the chilaquiles benedict which were also awesome. Super fresh salsa and great balance of meat and tortilla.

    Great breakfast spot and not that expensive. The only two things I don't like: waiting time and loud music.

    Amazing place, it's hard to choose one item. Ask about half orders of French toast or eggs Benedict. That way u can try two different ones

    Get the Snooze Spuds Deluxe with hash browns covered in jack cheese and an egg and add avocado, pico de gallo and goat cheese. Worth the 2 hour wait.

    Love the hashbrowns. Takeout is a great option for locals who don’t want to wait. Breakfast burrito and spuds deluxe are faves. Love the coffee too.

    Fresh with a great street presence and an impressive volume of the space. It engages the sidewalk on both a small and large scale and its warehouse aesthetic has a timeless quality to it.

    I had the “OMG! French Toast”. It was great! It’s not a huge portion, but it’s enough. Caramel at the bottom of the toast did the trick!

    Off menu they have a "sinful pancake." It's a major sugar rush with bacon, pecans, butternut sauce and just incredible. Order that and you won't be disappointed!

    Snooze serves Colorado's delicious Bhakti Chai, a fresh-pressed ginger chai that tastes great in a Dirty Chai (soy chai latte with a shot of espresso). Doooo it.

    Ask about HALF ORDERS!!! Some of your favorite items can be combined into one plate. 1/2 eggs Benedict & 1/2 OMG French toast is just one example

    You have to try the Peach Cobbler/Pie pancake! Do the pancake sampler or swap (small upcharge) the toast that comes w/ your eggs.

    Don't wait 2 hours to eat here. Breakfast pot pie was fine but not incredible. Loud pop music & extremely bright makes it feel like the food court at a mall. Julie at the bar was great and hospitable.

    Snooze Spuds are my favorite. Get them with carmelized onions, mushrooms, and chicken sausage. Also if they ever bring back Shrimp and Grits get that as well.

    Gazpacho is the bomb. Socialist Pig not so much. Breakfast pot pie is also amazing. Worth the wait for sure. Very reasonable prices.

    The staff here is great, always willing to make sure you have a great time. If you can, 18-22% gratuity is a great way to show them you appreciated all their hard work !
