The restaurant was quite crowded on the rainy Tuesday morning. I order the Don's stuffed hashbrown dor my brunch. The waitress was kind of impatient. The hashbrown taste good in the beginning. After a while, you would feel that's just okay. I'm not sure why...More

I love Don's! It is only open till 2 PM, and they only do breakfast and brunch/lunch. The food is super good - homemade and all. Nice portions, good prices, very friendly, and has great outside, dog friendly seating. They have the best homemade potato...More

Restaurant is in downtown Carlsbad. Restaurant was great for breakfast, several choices to pick from. Restaurant is small so it doesn't hold too many people. Orange juice is fresh squeezed! I would recommend this restaurant.
