Located in the Welk Resort, San Diego, this restaurant provides for both the guests of the resort and general public. We ate many of our meals there and found them well prepared, well served, attractive, and good.

This restaurant was our #1 breakfast choice during our week-long stay at the Welk Resorts. Wait people were pleasant and quite well-trained. Many had a hard time with orders in English. California Omelet was my personal favorite.

This is the only sit down restaurant at the resort. The food is good but the menu is pretty standard. Music in the background is from the 50's and 60's. Prices are reasonable and the service is OK.

We ate breakfast on April 13 and it was not busy but the service was slow & poor. This was our first meal at this restaurant and will be our last. We hated wasting time when we could have been enjoying the resort activities instead.
