miss this type of breakfast

Som Tommy

Love the hashbrowns from Perry’s


I don't think I've ever had fish as a breakfast protein! I'll have to look for it on other menus.


A diner type, more or less basic American breakfast, Kat. "Comfort" food at its best. So unpretentious.

Perry's does do the hashbrowns right, ST-crisp and thin.

Oh, the catfish at Lake Hodges was kind of a perfect meal, Sandy. The cod is very nice with the light pan fry. I've been sorely disappointed with bacon for a few years now-too thin (no flavor), too thick (chewy) and simply unsatisfying.


Looking at these pictures reminds me that I haven't had a good deluxe frittata from them since before the pandemic. God I miss that, and I need to fix it.

I'm glad to see they survived it and are doing well; growing up the son of new yorkers I heard (and had a brief experience) with the diner culture on the east coast, and I feel like Perry's is that for San Diego. Miss going there, sitting at the counter, having a meal and reading.


We've always enjoyed being seated at the counter, Loren; the viewpoint while seated watching the behind the counter atmosphere of workers is part of the meal experience. The consistency of food prepared here is also part of the comfort. The frittatas are wonderful.


Perry's looks cool. Sad to hear Smokey's is closed.


Perry's has good old fashioned food served in an old fashioned atmosphere, Soo. I miss the El Cajon location. Smokey's had the fishing licenses and supplies as well as canoe rental just to the left when you walked in; I hope that area is still operating; was really sad to read the news about the restaurant.
