Food detective

For me, it's Mama Kat's in San Marcos. They have very good eggs.

Passionate Eater

Haha, yes, if you do SYSCO or Reser's potatoes right, I think you can make magic happen!


Hi TFD - Didn't you guys show me where that place was? I'll have to check it out one of these days.

Hi PE - It's so nice to hear from you!


Kinda surprising about Perry's, then again I still love the place. It's a great breakfast.

If you want a small surprising place to eat, go to Clayton's Cafe on Orange Ave in Coronado. Very old school coffeeshop with the counter and everything along with good solid food. Recommend the garbage omelette.

Great sunday; park off orange, go to clayton's, walk to the hotel del, then walk back, have moo town, go home


My current favorite is Home Sweet Home Cafe in Escondido. I like their biscuits and gravy. The gravy has an interesting garlicy flavor and plenty of bacon. Also, if they have cinnamon rolls that is a must have. Their chicken fried steak is good too. They make it from scratch I think.

And hey, its quite close to the Stone brewery so you can stop by there for a tasty beer afterwards.


lucky's sounds like a great place!


Hi Loren - I know...I usually really enjoy Perry's. Hopefully it was just a one-off thing. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Jane - Oh, good gravy! I've got to check that place out. Thanks for the recommendation!

Hi Kat - At the least it's interesting!


i guess i just wanna know--does golden phenix really serve actual chinese food????


Hi Caligirl - From what I understand, Lucky used to serve American-Chinese food. Now he just sticks to breakfast.


Lucky's is good and really cheap! Haven't been in awhile but I really like it there. My current favorite is Tobey's 19th Hole on the Balboa Park golf course. Love that place!


Hi Mary - Lucky's is a great bargain, that's for sure!
