Have dined here twice, food and service were very good on both occasions. Most resent visit we had the Lobster Salad, Turkey Burger, Beignets and a birthday dessert. Only negatives on both visits, the restrooms were dirty and need to be maintained more often.

Salted Caramel Maple Bacon!🥓🍳 this place is worth the wait and they do take reservations, so knowing that now, I will definitely go that route next time...and the time after that and the time after that. White Peach Bellini is the best I've had 🍑🥂🍾

Good thing my friend made a reservation in advance, the wait is about 40mins. But that wait would still be worth it! We started with the bacon maple donut, it was SOOOOO good. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside! I ordered French toast with bacon, French toast was mouthwatering and caramel iced bacon was scrumptious. Hands down... More

I dined at Great Maple a week and a half ago and I'm still daydreaming about my delicious meal. Let's start with the fresh powdered sugar beignets...served hot with lemon curd...to die for! I like donuts and these beignets made my list for best food hands down. We tried the bloody mary shots $4.00 and it was fairly spicy and... More

This old Dennys made hipster cool and fun has outstanding food and service. The beef brisket sandwich is over-the-top fantastic. Really. It's $18 which is New York expensive but it is really great. You can't go wrong here but figure $50 for two for lunch.

We ordered appetizers twice because the first round was so delicious. Everything we tried we really enjoyed and hope to go back next time we are in San Diego!

Ok so the crown jewel of this place is the maple bacon donuts, served hot and they are just amazing! We when then went for something a little more savory in getting the beef brisket, comes with potatoes and poached eggs, the potatoes and poached eggs were amazing but found the beef not to have alot of flavor, I asked...

This place is well worth the trip when you come to San Diego. I made a reservation for myself for 10:15 am on a Sunday and the number of people who come here to wait the 30-45 minutes for a table was mind boggling; but after having eaten there, I understand. I took Uber from my downtown hotel and it... More
