We have been looking forward to going here after good reviews from friends and family. We caught a break on long lines as the weather was cool and rainy. We were able to get right in to order and find a table. I had the pancakes, bacon, and scrambled eggs. The pancakes were average. The scrambled eggs were fantastic. The... More

We came here for Breakfast and four of us ate for $35 with tip, which was cheaper than the IHOP up the street. I had a massive plate of eggs, pancakes and bacon for like $6.50 plus coffee. The place is packed and you will probably have to stand in line, but they are fast with the food once you... More

Would recommend to anyone who visits the Pacific beach area. Generous portions (we took half back to condo), fair prices, especially for the area. The service is so good, and the people who work there are exceptionally friendly. If you are looking for fancy, don't bother. If you are looking for quality, it is a must. Get there early as...

My family stating a small condo right across the street from this wonderful little café. Walk in and experience the 'local flavor' of Pacific Beach, and a laid-back setting providing great, fresh, simple breakfast including breakfast burritos big enough for two.

This was our favorite place we ate at during our stay in San Diego (not just the Pacific Beach area). Friendly and good food (good coffee too). We had both lunch and breakfast here during our stay. Everything was good! Good people watching too if you eat outside.

Had their breakfast burritos. They are huge and very good. Great deal for the money. They were $6.50 each and we ended up splitting them and having them two days in a row. The line gets really long but once you've ordered, you get your food in about 5 minutes. I was the 4th person out the door and it... More

Always a good sign when there is a line out the door at 8am on a weekday! Once we ate we knew why. The meals were of very large portions, and were very tasty. The Kono potatoes were one of the highlights. If you have the chance to stop by Pacific Beach for breakfast, this is the place to go!

we had been to the place cause a friend of us recommend it to us. This place was much to crowded and the food we got was not very delicious - on the next day we joined the pearl beans coffee next to the konos and prefer this.

Be prepared to wait a little but it's worth it and it goes pretty quickly. Breakfast is my favorite meal and this place was never disappointed me. Don't change a thing. Thank You Kono's Cafe!!!

We ate here twice in a week! The cheapest and best breakfast in San Diego! Humungous portions. Get burrito #1 yum!
