I only stopped in here once and it wasn't too bad. Nothing spectacular, but I had a quick snack and was on my way. The place seemed quaint and probably had some loyal customers who hang out there a lot. Thats what the place seemed like.

This is a great neighborhood breakfast place, if you are willing to wait 30-45 minutes to get in. These guys are always busy.

They are famous for their Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast. This is a definite must have, but probably only once. I suggest you share it with someone - That much peanut butter in one huge plate might overwhelm you. It is delicious though.

There are plenty of other great items on the menu. You have to eat here at least once. I am sure you will be back for more.

Absolutely the best breakfast we've had in 49 years!! The menus selections will amuse you (green eggs with spam), while the food will delight your tast buds.: The food food was absolutely spectacular. We would recommend that you allow time for your food to be prepared -- this isn't McDonalds, thank God!

What a cute find. Small but good food and fast. Can dine outside which inside is very small. Very good service and fun place to dine for breakfast and enjoy the San Diego weather.

Everytime I go to San Diego I make my way to Cafe 222 for breakfast. I love the tamale breakfast, the atmosphere is great too. It is a small quaint cafe on the corner of some condo's.

Pros: Great Food

Cons: Bad coffee

Lots of variety on the breakfast menu. Loved the beef tamale, wasn't crazy about the peanut butter waffle. I love pb, so had high hopes, but texture was doughy and flavor wasn't strong. Disappointed that I never got offered more coffee despite sitting at the small counter. Overall, cute place, would try again.

i was tempted to get the pumpkin pancakes, but i played it safe and had the mexican omlete (i believe) instead. i was with a party of 9 and everyone enjoyed their breakfast. The cafe only sat about 40 some people so it was relatively small. Definitely worth the visit again!

Pros: great in every way

Cafe 222 serves up really good breakfast fare with style. But the crowds on weekends are excessive, and the prices are a bit high. It is oh-so-popular with the trendy young residents near the Gaslamp. Good place, but I'll stick with less-crowded venues.

if you go try the eggs benedict. you will not be disappointed. if you feel daring try the tamale special, very suprising. the wait is always 30-45 min but it is always worth it. there is no bad time to show. there will always be a wait, and they don't take reservations but it is worth the wait.

Pros: people friendly and pet friendly. a must go

Cons: the restaurant is smaller than a studio apt. but dine outside, its very nice

.

This popular place features a great selection of breakfast options. We like to come with our pooch and sit outside when the weather is nice. Parking can be problematic at times.

If you love breakfast, no even if you don't love breakfast you need to go there. All their egg scrambles are amazing, try them with foccacia bread. The best part about this place is the pumpkin waffle. I mean, everyones heard of pumpkin pancakes but the waffles are really heaven. You can buy the mix in the store too. I've tried to make them myself but they weren't quite as good. They also have something like a bacon and chedder waffle? All I know is that everything is amazing and needs to be tried. Enjoy!
