Visited for breakfast. The food was delicious, served fast and hot. I enjoyed a breakfast sandwich which was great. My son and husband shared a big breakfast #2. The scrambled eggs were perfectly fluffy, the home fries with the cheese were decadent and enjoyed. The...French toast was also amazing. Highly recommend.More

Martin, Steve and the staff here are one of a kind. My wife and I have brought numerous friends and clients here for years. There have been a few days where we had breakfast at 730 AM and lunch at 130 PM. Favorites are the...french toast, pancakes with blueberries or bananas & the breakfast sandwich. The views are also top notch as the Crystal Pier is to your left and the Sandstone Cliffs and Ocean are to the right.More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and this place was a short walk away so we decided to try it. Ended up getting breakfast there every day and lunch one day too. Everything we had was great and the prices were very reasonable. Staff...was very friendly too. Overall an excellent place for breakfast and lunch. Occasionally there was a long line but it moved quickly. Indoor and outdoor seating or get it to go.More

Very popular spot right on the beach. Line forms in front of a window inside cafe where you place your order. You have the choice of sitting inside, outside near the restaurant or across the boardwalk behind a little shop on the ocean. The food...is amazing. Plates were huge. We were so impressed with our breakfast, that we returned the following day. I ordered big breakfast #2 which included eggs with cheese, home fries with bacon and cheese, an English muffin, 2 slices of thick bacon and 2 pieces of thick, I mean thick French toast. Price was around $11.More

We stopped here for lunch while on vacation in the area, after taking surf lessons on Pacific Beach. There was a long line out the door, and we discovered through conversation that many of them were locals. We ordered the chicken breast burger, the Kono's...burger, an egg salad sandwich, and an egg burrito. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Tip - there are a few places you can sit; inside the main restaurant, outside next door, or across the street which overlooks the ocean (highly recommend this option!). We'd definitely return here if in the area again.More

What a cute little gem on the beach. My husband discovered this little restaurant while on a morning jog on mission beach. The smell of bacon grabbed him. This is a pretty small restaurant with really good breakfast. It’s no frills but really delicious. I...had the chorizo breakfast sandwich and it was delicious. The fruit cup was a generous size. My husband had #1 with eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes and potatoes. Lots of food. You could share. Again, so good. There is a reason why the locals go here. Try it!More

Our hotel concierge suggested Kono’s for breakfast and he was absolutely right. Go in and order from a good choice of breakfast burritos, sandwiches or plates and eat outside just off the beach. We grabbed a table on the deck at their coffee bar next...door and had really well made expresso drinks with our burritos. I’m a decaf drinker and always love when a coffee shop has fresh decaf beans, which they did.More

My family has been coming here for over a decade. Their specialities are breakfast burritos and cheezy/oniony potatoes. Be prepared to wait on the weekends but the line moves.
