The place is very nice. The food was very good. It's a bit expensive but it's not their fault everywhere is expensive these days.

For the price you pay I thought it was not worth it. Had the Crab Benedict surely wads not worth the price.

Excellent food, especially the French toast and seafood chowder. Great service and perfect spot by the ocean. However, not a good place if you’re walking challenged. Lots of stairs, no elevator.

That was one of the best brunches I've ever been to! The location was perfect, the food was wonderful, the service was awesome, and we got one of the best tables in the house! I'd requested a view of the beach for some colleagues/friends visiting from England as Sunday was their last day and they absolutely loved it!!! I'm so glad my friend recommended Brockton Villa!!! I will definitely be back!!! Best brunch on the beach ever!!!

Went here on Saturday morning 1/15 and had a fantastic time. The manager with the pink hair was friendly, attentive and went above and beyond. The food was incredible, the beach views are to die for and the POG mimosa is out of this world. Highly recommend.

I went here for a Friday brunch and enjoyed my coffee while looking out at the ocean. I enjoyed a classic breakfast and had a bit of the bananas foster French toast and it was delicious! This spot is perfect for a coffee or a mimosa and the staff is amazing! I cannot stress that enough! Overall great experience with a view!

Food was great, particularly the cinnamon pancakes. My husband enjoyed his 1/2 pound burger. My only complaint is about the lack of ADA access. My husband and have arthritic knees and those stairs are challenging.

I ordered the "lump crabcake" eggs Benedict and it was extremely disappointing. The crab cake was not "lump". It was almost a crab paste. Totally unsatisfactory.

Funky ambiance, excellent food, and an ocean view. The surrounding area has heavy tourist traffic, so I was worried this might be an expensive tourist restaurant with average food. Pleasantly surprised!

Outstanding service, excellent coffee and toast. I always love coming here for breakfast, it is terrific every single time. The ocean view is exceptional of course. I loved that the waitstaff was so kind yesterday to allow my friend and I to stay at the table for a little longer than we probably should have, and catch up. We haven't seen each other in a very long time. Thanks so much!

We were looking for a place and my husband didn't want to try Brockton. After a walk through La Jolla shopping area looking for a restaurant, my husband caved. I made the res and we were able to get a table outside overlooking the cove. My husband tried the Coast Toast and I went with Guaca-Mame. He couldn't believe how good his choice was. Mine was great too, but his french toast was like eating a soufflé. I was going to get it too, but wanted something different on the table to share. Anyway, we loved it so much, that we found a similar recipe online to make our version for a Christmas brunch with friends. It was a hit.
Our server was fun to talk to as well.
We will definitely return. Love the history of this place that doesn't look like much from the outside, but worth it to visit time and time again. And we told friends that enjoy San Diego.

Location was great. Our hostess was very friendly and the food was good but the service from our waiter was horrible. He took our order and then disappeared. Brought our food and disappeared again. We ate with no water, couldn’t get coffee refills or more mimosas. So because of that it wasn’t a nice brunch. It wasn’t that busy either. If you want good food with good service I’d go somewhere else.

Great little place in an historic home along the coast. Delicious food and a chowder that had a bit of curry, yum! The weather was overcast and chilly on our visit, but on a sunny day it would be spectacular.

The service at Brockton Villa has always been exceptional, with views of La Jolla Cove that are second to none! I always make it a priority to visit Brockton Villa when I’m in town, and have made lots of fond memories dining here! If it’s your first time dining at Brockton Villa, I highly recommend the Coast Toast and BV Mocha! The breakfast bowls are also delicious if you have a craving for hearty, savory dishes!
