Lovely brunch with a lovely view! Wish we’d asked to have the heater turned on as it was a bit chilly, but we wanted to sit on the patio. Service wasn’t fancy, but everyone was nice and accommodating. We’ll definitely be back!

Our server Daniel was on point. The mother's Day menu was a little short of your most delicious food that you normally serve.

Great experience! I had been meaning to try this out for a while and thought Mothers Day would be the perfect time. I’m so glad that I did. I called because I was running late and thought there was no way they would hold my reservation on Mother’s Day but instead they did everything they could to help me out! They could not have been nicer and the service and food were all excellent. Could not recommend enough. They really made my Mothers Day perfect. Thank you Brockton Villa!

Gorgeous view. We had a wonderful table on the patio next to the edge. Our server was so amazing. He was caring and on top of things. The food was very good, especially the Cove French Toast. Cove Mimosa was outstanding, too!

Love the menu here! It is a family favorite. Beautiful views of the water. Right now there is a lot of construction going on outside, it made it hard to park/get to the restaurant and was noisy for people eating outside, also, love the seals in La Jolla but they are a little smelly.

We made a reservation and did not have to wait in the line of people to check in. The tables are set up perfectly for social distancing. Food was excellent! We got the carne asada eggs Benedict and a veggie breakfast bowl. The BV mocha was phenomenal too. Service was also awesome! Thanks!

We ❤️ to brunch at Brockton Villa! The view can’t be beat. It is a little difficult to find parking and my husband recently had knee surgery so walking up to the seat was a challenge but the food is always fabulous.

Good food, good service and somewhat reasonable prices (for La Jolla). ...and unless you're inside a beautiful ocean view. The only down side is the lack of parking. ...and sometimes the bird/seal smell when the wind blows your way... but that's part of the ambiance.

Hi I love the Brockton Villa its the best view in Sothern Cali! I bring all my guest from out of town its so fun! My honest opinion from yesterday's lunch the food was overall very good the waiter was ok, the bathrooms were very dirty. Everyone was doing the best they can; hostesses were wonderful. My friend has food restrictions and was told very curtly no Substitutes weird... Also missing that delicious bowl you used to have and a few more veggie choices.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and service was just mediocre even though I left him a 17% tip BUT the food and view were excellent. We had the egg bowls but would try the Coast toast next visit. The Bloody Mary’s were exceptional!

It was great to enjoy brunch close to the ocean; however, we were outside up against the wall, right behind the door and it was FREEZING!!! There was no heater available in that spot so it put a damper on the whole experience.

But the food and the service was great!
