Let's admit it- that's why you come here. The breakfasts are good too but it's always sooo crowded and the service can be spotty.

Still- it's an awesome spot to sit and people watch and enjoy the beach.

This is my favorite place to be with my husband in all of San Diego. It is very romantic, especially on the patio at dusk. There is a story behind the green flash but you must dine there to find it. The Bloody Marys are out of this world and the steamed clams are unsurpassed.

My boyfriend and I went there for one of our anniversaries and the view from inside is beautiful. The restaurant is on the beach and is very romantic. Great prices on the food and great service also. Great place for an anniversary or somewhere to eat that is on the beach.

A friend of mine and I were leaving back to S.F. so we hurried over to the beach area to have lunch before our flight and this place was busy so we went in. I ordered a salad at first and then switched to the crab cakes, she ordered a burger. I figured why be at a seafood retaurant and not order seafood. Oh my goodness.........I didn't even think it was possible to mess those up. They were absolutely disgusting!!! Her burger was good but very greasy. So when we were checking our server asked how the meal was and I told her what I thought about the crab cakes and she replies with "I've heard that before". So I ask why she didn't mention it to me when I ordered and she said she's never tried them personally. I told for next time if someone orders the crab cakes to kindly let them know that you've been told that they are not that good. DAH!!!! I don't know what happened there. And they were also very greasy.

Pros: Great view of the ocean

Cons: Greasy food

I guess you can only see the green flash certain times of the year. When I ate here, I didn't see it. The food was decent but the service could've been better. The seafood could've been better considering it was right on the ocean! Still, the patio was neat and it'd be cool to actually see a green flash here sometime.

I had breakfast here and it felt like a nice restaurant without the high prices. We sat on the patio and had a gorgeous view of the ocean and the sandy beach. Great food and good service as well.

This is one of the greatest little beach cafes ever! It is almost right on top of the sand and the view is great (espeically if you like to people watch). It is a small place and half the dining is on the patio. They have great breakfasts and even better prices. It has always been a favorite of ours to take out of town guests to. Be prepared to wait a little or get their early if you go on the weekends but it is definately worth it. There is nothing better!
