Good breakfast in a nice old style diner. Food was good and timely. Our waitress was very good, friendly and attentive. Would and will stop again.

Three times for dinner and enjoyed the food, the server (Lisa) and the 50's music. Will eat at Tommy's on our next trip to San Clemente.

Recently enjoyed our dinners here after being overdone on the local Mexican food. We enjoyed the best fried chix & mashed potatoes as well as the butternut squash bisque w/ grilled ham & cheese. Hit the spot! And Lisa, our awesome server, was the sprinkles on top!

We live in Poway, and on the way up to Los Angeles area, or on the way home, we stop at Tommy's--always have and always will. We bring an appetite, b/c the portions are large and the food is great.
Fluffy pancakes; a HUGE breakfast quesadilla with half of an avocado; large white mugs to contain the great coffee, hash browns are shoe string style-just perfectly crisped, bone in ham, bacon perfectly prepared, breakfast steaks --you can't go wrong. They also have other meals besides breakfast, and , while I am sure they are great too, we always have a breakfast meal, regardless of the time of day. It's also a friendly cafe--the owner/manager is on site, the wait staff is cheerful, pleasant.

This is a convenient stop off of the 5 (El Camino exit, go west). If you have had a busy morning,day--traveling back from a track meet, surfing, hiking, biking, or even suffering through southern CA traffic, this is a great spot for sustenance .

If you are looking for a good home cooked meal, Tommy's is the place to try. Menu is extensive and the portions large enough to take home and enjoy later. Desserts are a must try.
