This coffee shoppe serves a very good breakfast with good prices. It is only a short walk from the Marriott hoel on Ocean Avenue. We ate there twice on our trip to San Diego--enjoyed the employees

We were here for breakfast. The facilities are pretty simple but location is good, close to the beach. Excellent breakfast and very good service. Will try their burgers for dinner next time.

Small coffee shop good for breakfast and lunch on Ocean Ave. Reasonably priced and interesting menu. Good smoothies. Right opposite the Viceroy Hotel. Can get very busy so put your name down in advance.

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
