Breakfast in La Jolla?

Hoping for a place open early with a place to sit and have a good coffee. Still on east coast time...

    Downtown LJ on Girard.
    Classic and the best!

    1. Harry's is definitely a classic place -- my kind of place.

      But my favorite for a light breakfast (or just coffee) in LJ is Goldfish Point Café. Their bacon and egg Panini and Greek-style scrambled eggs are both very nice. Great view and a great spot for people-watching.

        Goldfish Point Café is great to take that latte to go and hike around the Clam and walk along the cliffs toward the caves and sit on the benches that only some of us locals know to connect with the sea, dolphins and all its beauty.

        The views up the coast are stunning..good place to get your fill of negative ions.

            How is the food at Bird Rock Coffee? Never have been there for breakfast.

            Too bad Richard Walker's isn't open yet.

              RB- Good point to raise on Bird Rock Coffee.. The food is basic bakery items and oatmeal. My breakfasts are 90% coffee so I'll admit to being skewed here.
