The breakfast setting is great. The location is across from the Chula Mall, parking is great. The staff is so friendly.

Delicious food and service was great. The only negative if you can call it that, is that it is a lot of food. We had breakfast and had enough for two other breakfasts at home.

Ordered the corned beef hash and got a lot of bland food even the salsa in a little weird cup couldn't help rescue it. It's also dark and unwelcoming. Tried it for the good reviews. I just don't agree.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. The food is consistently delicious. Whenever I'm in town I always eat here at least once. It's a Chula Vista classic!

A good old fashioned coffee shop that the locals love you will often find a line but it seems to move pretty good. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal.
