Great service! Excellent view of the ocean. Food was delicious. My friend appreciated the Meg’s Eggs without oil + egg whites only for her diet. Breakfast tacos were very good. So many good choices on the menu.

I wish I could have given this a glowing review but I can't. We wanted a restaurant with an ocean view and this restaurant was very quaint and looked perfect to celebrate my birthday. Upon arriving, hostess could not find our Open Table reservation and argued with us even though I showed her my confirmation, insisting that maybe we made it for another day. We arrived just before 3 pm, in time for the breakfast or lunch menu, according to our waiter, who immediately pressured us to make a decision if we wanted breakfast. As a result, the appetizer came out and was quickly followed by the entree--when we really wanted to take our time but maybe that was our mistake by ordering a couple of breakfast items. Nevertheless, we also ordered an Italian soda and the waiter (the rudest waiter I've ever encountered) said they have them all, "Tell me what you want and I'll let you know if we have it!" Well, he seemed too sluggish to reel off the list, so my son asked for a menu. Only then did he start listing the options but was obviously put out. My son ordered another vanilla in defeat and this one came watered down. Waiter told us to "make it yourself...it is only two ingredients: seltzer and vanilla syrup" and brought him the items to mix his own drink. Really??? On top of everything my omelette was rubbery. What a disappointing meal and a birthday meal to boot!! Would not come back.

we travel to la jolla for brunch celebrating our daughter’s birthday on january 1 every year for the past 3 years.
the food, cocktails and views are amazing!

our server was adequate, however he didn’t go above/beyond for our daughter’s special occasion in any way. he didn’t personalize our dining experience, as i would have hoped.

Brockton Villa is a nice little gem in La Jolla Cove. The food (breakfast or lunch) is very good, and the location directly across from the cove offers beautiful views. The prices are good, particularly for the location and views that come along with it.

We had a party of 6 and had breakfasts mainly. The Coast Toast is amazing French Toast! Three of us had that. The side order of sausages were wonderful, as well. And, I am not a sausage person. We tried the cinnamon bun pancakes and cheese omelette with potatoes and fruit. All were excellent. Make a reservation and you will not have to wait. We will be back.

Not all that. The ocean view was the best. Under staffed no utensils and the food not all that. We were hoping for a great weekend away and this ruined it.

The services was great. She was friendly and made recommendations that were delicious. We sat outside but they had the screens pulled and a space heater so it felt great. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for dining by the sea!

Brockton was amazing! Being greeted by the many waiters/waitresses with A smile on their face made me feel very welcome. The views were spectacular and the service from Steven was great. I had the chilaquiles with carnitas and it was 🔥🔥🔥. My girlfriend had the breakfast tacos and they were also amazing.

My second time here in 10 years because of the view and great menu. Food seemed rushed with some overdone and some underdone, but not surprising for a holiday weekend and still good and worth the visit. Also surprised to find the alcohol limitation (not served until 11am) but being from Texas we've seen worse there Lol. Overall good service and flexible to our requests, though a bit loud inside - but can't really complain. Will try again on a non-holiday weekend if possible.

I would recommend that they come when the tide is in. My guests from out of town were a little distracted by the smell from the cove. As the tide came in the smell dissipated. Only other suggestion is that they provide more bathrooms. The bathrooms were not very clean

Food was delicious and location is great. Sunset view was good but not perfect in winter months since the restaurant faces slightly north. It would probably be perfect in summer months.

We went for breakfast on my birthday. The food and service was fantastic. The place is super cute (beach cottage converted into a restaurant) and has a lot of interesting history behind it. We sat on the balcony overlooking the cove. It was beautiful.
