My daughter and I had brunch here on a Sunday. The traffic getting there was heavy as it was all over town. Amazingly, we found a place to parallel park a few steps from the bistro. You can sit inside and dine but it is cramped and a little dark, so I would opt to dine out front in the... More

Have only been for breakfast which is always delicious with a nice range of menu items. Crown City Bristro is small so there can sometimes be a wait but it is worth a little bit of time to enjoy a great breakfast.

I stopped in the Crown City Inn & Bistro for breakfast a couple of weeks ago while I was on Coronado for business. OMG the Strawberry and Banana French Toast was the best I had ever tasted. The staff was ever-present to fill my coffee cup (and the coffee was very good). I was seated immediately and was able to... More

We were staying at the adjacent inn and decided to give the restaurant a try. The first surprise was that there wasn't a wine list despite the menu inviting you to ask for it. The waiter, almost surprised to be asked for it, reeled off a few bottles of wine and beer leaving you little or no time to decide.... More

Delicious and it is bistro style. Probably best to look off orange ave to park but well worth any walk.

We enjoyed our first breakfast in Corinado here. My wife had artichoke Joes, scrambled eggs with artichokes, tasty! I had the crown special breakfast with eggs and meat and potatoes with toast and homemade jam. Excellent coffee. The table next door got a huge plate of peach French toast which looked terrific. We. sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather.... More

This is a restaurant that is part of a hotel and is quite small, about 5 tables inside, but seating outside as well. We had walked by and were given menus by a very gracious lady at one point when they were closed, so we tried it a few days later. When we arrived for dinner, she was not in... More

My family and I wanted to try a new restaurant. We looked at their menu on the website and it sounded appealing. My husband had the Village Omelette, he said it was good, but the serving was somewhat small for him. Our daughter had the waffle with ricotta cheese, she was satisfied as well. I ordered the Eggs Benedict, the... More
