Great neighborhood find
I love the service and the food. The corn chowder with crab cake ball is the best. We go their just for soup sometimes. A great place to take our out of town guests too.

Outstanding Breakfast Adventure
My two boys recommended that we go to Adam's Avenue Grill for a Saturday Breakfast adventure. This quaint little bistro was a bit of a surprise, appearing out of nowhere toward the west end of Adam's Avenue. Once inside, the light, cottage ambiance was immediately relaxing and inviting, even though the place was packed. The boys had suggested that the eggs benedict was the best they had ever had, but then I spied the Lavender infused vanilla french toast - which was fantastic. (the bennies were excellent, too)
We did not wait terribly long (maybe 10 minutes) and the food arrived quickly. In the meantime, we had many games of tic-tac-toe on the butcher paper table covers.
Tim, the owner/chef, even came up to check up on us personally.

The food was superior, ambience
The food was superior, ambience was great., darling neighborhood Can't believe I've lived in San Diego for 20 years and had never been here. This restaurant will become one of my favorite "Go To" spots for an authentic dining experience.

Adams Ave. Grill
Went with friends and had a great time. The food was wonderful and service excellent. The only shortcoming is that parking is not always easy to find as you must park in the surrounding neighborhood since the restaurants has no dedicated parking.

Small, casual and very busy. Parking is never easy here on Adams Ave. in San Diego, but this wonderful place is on the residential end of Adams, and parking at 11:30 Sunday am was almost impossible. Since I am handicapped, I inquired if there were any places I wasn't aware of, and the manager actually let me park in the employee lot behind her car! Talk about a wonderful place! My gnocci with a red pepper sauce and veg was beautiful and yummy. My friend had the chicken wrap, ditto, and we could actually hear our conversation. We couldn't finish the large portions, and then found that dessert (choice of three) was included in the reasonable price. So we got the peanut butter bars to go. Good choice. Must-go for San Diego.

What a find! This is the kind of place that every town should have. Great food, wonderful atmosphere, service really fine. Must go back at least a few dozen times to sample all the delicious items on the menu! Highly recommended. All this nestled in a quiet pretty neighborhood,

Out of towners
I am a neighborhood guy who had 3 visitors from out of town, one eats anything, one was vegan and one didn't like fish. I am happy eating anywhere, but as host and neighborhood ambassador for that particular evening I wanted to take them to a restaurant which was a personifcation of how good and cool this pocket of culture I have come to love truly is. They wer all 3 gobsmacked with the food, the ambiance and the charming pigtailed waitress, as was I. Great restaurant. I'll be back.
