I loved this place! It's location is awesome and sitting outside on the patio was really nice. The service was great and the food was fantastic. We had the french toast and crab benedict and it was exceptional. We were going to eat at The Cottage (we've had it before), but I liked Cody's a lot better. Make sure that... More

Loved this little restaurant we stumbled upon for breakfast while visiting the La Jolla Cove. Great menu, nice view of the water (especially if you sit outside). Would definitely return.

What an incredible location for a tremendous breakfast with my wife! Beautiful outdoor seating is available and we took advantage of a 70 degree sunny day in LA Jolla. The staff was laid back but super fast and friendly. Best french toast we've ever eaten.

We stumbled upon this place after parking our car. They have a brunch menu and it is amazing. The food was fresh and delicious, service was outstanding. I would definately go here again.

This place is always packed. They too have a delicious lobster roll and craft cocktails, perfect for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, they have a great view of the ocean.

I had a day to myself in LaJolla this week and wanted lunch with a view. I peeked at several menus as I meandered through the area, and this one seemed to have a good selection, decent prices, outdoor seating, and a view of the ocean- everything I was looking for! I ordered the Cody Burger (without the bun), fries,... More

My wife and I stopped at Cody's for breakfast prior to our drive back to LA. First off, it's a great location with nice indoor and outdoor seating. Service was prompted and attentive. After reading the on-line reviews (all extolling one particular dish) we ordered the Veggie Hash (wife - this was the dish reviewers were nutty over) and the... More

Location is king and they sure have it. The spritzers are killer but they lack a full bar. Food was solid and our waiter was good. The hostess was overwhelmed and the customers felt it. That should never be your first impression.

Nice view, attentive staff, very fresh but Mahi tacos were under seasoned for my taste. Not much food, though my friend's lobster roll was overflowing with huge chunks of lobster.

This is to this day the best breakfast food I've ever had. Their coffee is delicious, their service is great. The atmosphere is cozy. And the food, oh my goodness. Everything we tried was simply delicious. If you're in San Diego it's worth the drive to La Jolla. Get there early though, it fills up.

Thank Chris W
