Chicken tortilla soup is always delicious, you can tell it's homemade and with care. My husband usually orders the tuna melt or breakfast burrito. Personally I do a soup and sandwich. Have to share a donut and coffee for dessert.

This little gem is on the corner of El Camino Real and it is easy to drive past it on your way to Baskin Robbins. But, stop here first. The place is very small and gets crowded on weekend mornings but so worth the wait for a table!! The menu has an amazing variety for being so small. We got the breakfast burrito, omelet, and blueberry pancakes. Burrito was perfect - lots of cheese, eggs, and they don't skimp on the bacon here. Ratio of cheese and bacon were right on point with the eggs. They also provide a good salsa on the side. It's got a good little kick to it. Omelet was perfectly cooked and had loads of cheese and bacon in it too. Delicious! The blueberry pancakes were good and came with eggs and bacon on the combo plate. Great food, big portions, and good people. Love this place!

The Acai fruit bowl with warm granola is a must. Once you get it turn west on Avienda Del Mar drive 5 minutes to a hidden oasis beach with early morning surfers and joggers.....paradise.

My sister-in-law took us here for breakfast for which I am thankful. Small interior for this café and good outdoor seating. My wife had corn beef hash with eggs over the hash and potatoes. I had a burrito with eggs, potatoes and Louisiana Hot Links, huge and hard to finish but excellent.

We have enjoyed a lot of great breakfasts, but this one satisfied the whole family the most. We started with 3 different massive breakfast burritos: 1 with eggs and potatoes, one with machacha beef and one with chorizo, eggs, and potatoes. They were all AMAZING!!!!! Don't forget to eat the yummy salsa with the burritos. We also ordered a Mickey Mouse pancake for our youngest and that was great .... not too sweet like most restaurant pancakes.
We were all totally stuffed after devouring most of our burritos (took leftovers home), but when at The Grill you have to order some of their delectable donuts. The donuts do taste as good or even better than they look in the display. Yummmm!!!!
This is a must eat at breakfast spot. Come super hungry and don't forget the donuts!
