    Wow! Went for brunch here on a Saturday. While it's a little pricy, the quality of food and service is so much better than other restaurants charging the same. Wonderful omelets, salads, drinks and more, and a heated patio outside for when the wind is a bit chilly. It was pretty crowded outside by 9:15 already, but the noise level was tolerable. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the food arrived lightning fast on this particular day! I thought that we'd be waiting at least 30 minutes to get our food or drinks. A great time was had by all, and I shall definitely go back soon!

    First time at FT. We were seated quickly and our fur baby was allowed with us on the patio (thank you). Servers were pleasant and our food came in an acceptable amount of time. We had the carnitas benedict with potatoes and it was just OK. The egg white was rubbery, the potatoes were over seasoned and salty, and the entire dish was just lukewarm. After we paid we received the receipt for another table in error.

    We had a misunderstanding about our order but our waiter did fix it as fast as he could. The restaurant is always very noisy and difficult to have a conversation but we did find the quietest table possible.

    We were a group of 8 and each ordered a different breakfast dish. I ordered the carnitas omelette. I was hoping the meat would not be fatty nor greasy and it was not. It was delicious! I don't remember what each friend ordered, but they all enjoyed their dish as well.

    Our server was delightful! I didn't catch her name, but she has a wonderful Italian accent. Very friendly staff overall, and food was good. They allowed us to sit at our table for over 2 hours (it was a friend reunion and birthday breakfast) without pressure and continued to check on us. She even brought me a delicious lemon cake with a birthday candle! That was so appreciated! I'll be back!

    Very nice outside area, went for brunch, both my mom and I got omelets and both found them to be rather dry. Potatoes were good, very crispy. Service was quick and employees were nice. May go again and try the GF pancakes 🥰

    This was our first time at Farmer’s Table in La Mesa and it did not disappoint. The food was good, what you would expect and the cost was fair. We ordered Mimosa’s and those were on point with taste. It was really loud with the music and customers. It did settle down as the brunch time was coming to a close. The area is cute and you can walk around safely to visit boutique type shops.

    Hadn’t been there in a while because they had a pared down menu. The original menu is back and the food is great .we adined outside and there were heat lamps which made for a comfortable experience. Our server, Maria was charming and attentive. I had the Farmers pizza which was delicious. My friend had a Benedict that she raved about. We both had the red sangria which was Devine. Will definitely be planning a return trip soon.

    We love this restaurant. The food was excellent and not at all run of the mill. The house salad was a fabulous mixture of baby arugula and a medley of fresh fruit, lovely. We also enjoyed the pork shank and flat iron steak. Unfortunately we were too full to try the dessert tray, will have to go there next time.

    Server was too slow. We go often and this was the first time we were disapointed with service. Server was newer than anyone we have known so that might be why? Long time to get our order. Long time to get drink. Long time to get bill. I am usually a big tipper but this time minimum.

    You'll want to order at least two pizzas for your table to share-they are so delicious and everyone should try at least one slice. Recommend the Virgin Islands N/A drink too! Lots of fun on a Saturday evening with La Mesa friends.

    I went for breakfast. The atmosphere is comfortable. The server was outstanding and regularly filled our coffee. Others came and refilled water. The omelettes are served with potatoes and choice of bread. Prices are similar to restaurants in this category. My food was just okay. The omelette was not well seasoned with bland vegetables and the potatoes tasted stale. I’d come again as restaurants like this are not prevalent in La Mesa.

    The food is excellent at Farmer's Table La Mesa. We had no wait for late brunch and the restaurant was not full. Service was poor. We did not receive a visit to ask how our meal/food/experience was to make sure there were no problems. We had to ask for refills on our beverages individually. The value of the meals we had was poor. The breakfast burrito was more expensive for less food than the Carnitas Omelette. I was surprised at experiencing these challenges.
