We felt it was expensive for brunch. There were 4 of us and has a total of 3 drinks and entrees and it was over $170 for. Brunch that was ok at best.

Best Cobb salad in town. Chorizo scramble was tasty. Save room for the beignets with lemon curd. Nice outdoor seating during Covid-19. Recommended for lunch or dinner. Delicious food.

Food is super creative and loved the atmosphere, the portabella fries and the beignets are incredible but the food is insanely expensive even for San Diego prices, $20 for a veggie scramble is out of control

Service has a lot to be desired, from seating to server. Parking lot is not ideal for eating as traffic noise was a bit overwhelming. Food is good but way too expensive for what you get.

Great updated set up with spacious outdoor dining in their parking lot. The kitchen didn’t skip a beat, still serving up DELICIOUS unique dishes at a timely pace even during a busy Sunday morning. Finally, as always, friendly efficient service!

3 words, maple bacon donuts. Drinks and food amazing. Can’t go wrong here. No more waiting an hour and half which is the cherry on top. They finally take open table reservations.

This little gem is my go-to every time I’m in San Diego. Everything on the menu is fantastic, especially the French Dip, Truffle Deviled Eggs, and Maple Bacon Doughnuts. Try the pineapple jalapeño margarita while you’re there. The staff is super — very knowledgeable about the menu & really friendly — which is important to me because so many places have such rude staff nowadays — but everyone & everything about this place makes me smile :)

The food is amazing! My husband had the fish and chips and I think he said 5 times during the meal, “this is really good, this is the best fish and chips I’ve ever had !”. I had the egg whites/avocado toast, yummy! Fresh ingredients, fresh baked bread! Coffee was delicious too!

Great food and great service! Hostess Candy, server Mozar and manager Leslie all contributed to a very warm, welcoming atmosphere!
Highly recommend the lamb shepherd’s pie along with their risotto .
Great place for everyday or date night.

I commend the great maple. Every visit is such a pleasure and I’m never disappointed. I brought clients to brunch and it was the perfect casual atmosphere needed. They were wowed by everything, from trying beignets for the first time to the obvious crowd pleasers of extricate bloody Mary’s, French toast and poached eggs. Even with new staff this place was great. And the covid implementations I could tell my guests felt safe.

Really terrible service. Did not refill drinks, some food came out after everyone was finished with their meal, server did not check on us at all even though they attended to other tables, it was also not busy so I’m not sure why the service was so bad.
