    Lovely setting: beautiful views and sunny terrace. Their food is average and there is no table service.

    Brunch is decent but the wait is totally not worth it! Although there is nothing better near by.....

    The view is epic! The food was simple, but delicious. I particularly enjoyed the blueberry pancakes.

    THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Long wait, horrible customer service, misleading advertising to download app to beat standing in line only yielded "order to go" after waiting my turn in line after all.

    My favorite all time weekend breakfast hangout, watch surfers, steps go down to beach, or explore the trails, al fresco seating, power breakfast is favorite, go for the house coffee while you wait.

    This place deserves great rating! Awesome view just by the shore and food is delicious. Some of the servers are very nice & kind, some can get on your nerves- just ignore them and enjoy the view :)

    We asked if they had real maple syrup and they said yes. Not only was it fake, but it was the cheapest fake syrup.

    Awesome location for a cafe! Unless you have a ucsd SIO permit, parking is a bit tricky

    Nice place but the servers wanted to close up the place at 2:10 so we couldn't see the view. The place closes at 3 pm normally. WTF

    Crappy buffet food that is overpriced and oversalted. Just go to the beach.
