On our last day on our trip we decided we wanted a great breakfast spot to grab a bite to go and head to the beach and dine. I remembered reading about Pipes. Easy to find although parking is a bit of a challenge. We stood in line and being New Mexicans for years immediately landed on the breakfast burrito. We both enjoyed the bacon egg potato and cheese. I requested my pica sauce on the side not knowing what to expect. The burrito was enormous! The pica sauce was tangy and spicy and I thoroughly enjoyed too much of the whole experience. Definitely could share a burrito unless you are super hungry! There are a few tables to dine inside and out. The place was active the entire time we were there. The value is crazy and it's easy to see why the locals love this spot! Breakfast on the beach was perfect with our handheld burritos the size of logs and our coffees! For under $10 this was a morning feast for the senses!!!

First, if you do not enjoy the "vibe" of Southern California, you won't enjoy Pipes. But for true American standards like scrambled eggs and pancakes, the place offers terrific value.

The menu is somewhat limited, but what they do have is tasty. The service couldn't be friendlier. My favorite is their egg salad sandwich.
