When staying in La Jolla, make sure to stop in at Cody's. It is right on the Cove and next to La Valencia. Breakfast foods served all day make for a great brunch. Quintessential beach restaurant. Outside seating has a fabulous view of the ocean. Huevos Rancheros (with a pomegranate mimosa) , biscuits and gravy and country breakfast were all... More

A smaller menu, but they do it all well. The view is incredible, the food is good and the portions are large. Walk down the the cove when you're dinished!

A little hectic at times but good pub food and a good craft beer selection. Very quirky atmosphere adds to the ambiance. A very good choice for a satisfying lunch or dinner . Very friendly servers.

We had brunch here and enjoyed sitting outside on the small terrace. The breakfast was well-prepared, and the tomatoes tasted farm fresh. I especially enjoyed my grilled seafood tacos with a delicious sauce. Prices are good, and the service is great. The restaurant is in a good location within walking distance to the cove.

The service here was friendly, and the quality of the food was unusually good, with fresh, well-prepared ingredients. Sitting on the patio is really nice, with a casual, touristy atmosphere. The inside was OK, but seemed a little noisy. The chicken sandwich with pesto was very good, and the French toast looked fantastic. The restaurant is a bit hard to... More
