This is a great place to have breakfast or lunch. The only real downside is the lack of parking because the La Jolla Cove area is so busy with tourists. Sometimes when the breeze shifts, there's a "bouquet" of seagull/sea-lion smell, but that soon passes. If you can find parking, then this is a great place to visit. You won't be disappointed...

Great place to catch the sunset. OK for dinner. Inside with a large party beside us was extremely noisy. We asked to move & were quickly accommodated.

We had a fantastic meal at 8:00 pm. We were sat on time, the service was friendly and attentive. The food: grilled artichoke, Korean barbecue salmon were delicious and perfectly cooked. We had an ocean outside view and kept nice and warm with the heaters. Really magical.

So romantic, perfect view and the sweetest staff! She told us all about the history of the building and we will come many many more times!!! Also maybe the best steak we’ve ever eaten. We both gorged!!

Unfortunately we came during the hours of 3-5 on a Saturday which was the small bite menu, we got the charcuterie board and it was not worth cost at all. From the reviews, I’m assuming that we had unfortunate luck in our timing and charcuterie board doesn’t help customers compare to the actual cooked food form the chefs.

We did get great drinks, amazing service and stunning view. I would come back again to try breakfast or dinner.

Have brunched here for years and it’s always a delight. Steamed eggs, fresh juice, and of course Coast Toast and the view are always five star. Staff are also always friendly, attentive, professional, and relaxed.

The view is the best in La Jolla, right in front of cove. The ambience was excellent. The service was also amazing. The food was also good but the chocolate cake wasn’t good at all. Felt like bought from a grocery store and served.

BV remains a family favorite. Tried the new Crabcake sandwich - fantastic! Nice local beers to choose from. Service is always very good. Construction at the Cove will be over soon. Right now you might have to walk a couple of blocks to get to BV but it's worth it!

The 3 of us enjoyed the different dishes we ordered. Brockton Villa is a wonderful place to dine. Right now the drawback is the road paving and noise. Beautiful view, though, and great food!

The view was amazing and the coffee was delicious! The server was wonderful, but the food wasn’t very amazing!
I ordered the French toast and it seemed moist and maybe not cooked all the way. My niece ordered the eggs, bacon, potatoes plate and that wasn’t very exciting either! I would’ve expected the potatoes to have more seasoning and taste much better than they did. The applewood bacon saved the meals!

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!
