Beach Break Café
Review

Great Service ~ Great Food ~ Great Friends~

 

The Beach Break Café, Oceanside, California.

For our Sunday Breakfast, the family decided to experience something different. Reef Indy’s Mom and Dad recommended the Beach Break Café. So off to 1802 S Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054 we drove.

The Beach Break Cafe - Be prepared for a short walk, because the parking around the restaurant was completely taken.
Be prepared for a short walk, because the parking around the restaurant was completely taken. However, it was so very pleasantly warm in this beach community; the walk was a plus not a minus.

This establishment, which opened in 1988, serves their customers from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every day. They do not take reservations, so there was a line, literally, out the door when we arrived. They informed us that it would be a thirty to forty minute wait. Oma did not believe it; however, our party was seated approximately thirty minutes later.

The Beach Break Cafe Famous Coffee Cake – Yummy!
Reef’s Mom and Dad ordered Vegetarian Omelettes. The Omelettes at the Beach Break are made with four large farm fresh eggs, served with your choice of our home style potatoes, crispy hash browns or sliced tomatoes, and coffee cake, toast, biscuits, or tortillas. Of course they picked the coffee cake option. Zack had been bragging about the coffee cake for months and Oma must admit the coffee cake was very moist and tasty.

The Beach Break Cafe Frisco BurgerOpa order his usually eggs over easy with sour dough toast. Oma, the last remaining local family carnivore, ordered a Frisco Burger. The 1/3 pound burger was well grilled and placed on sourdough bread. It was smothered in Monterey Jack Cheese and served with lettuce, tomato, fresh red onion and pickles. 

The escorting French Fries were scrumptious but could have been a tad warmer. Oma meant to take a photo of her food when it arrived; unfortunately, Oma eat it before accomplishing that task.

This restaurant is very kid friendly and Reef Indy enjoyed his first experience with crayons.

 Between 1999 and 2006, Gary would rummage through the Los Angeles area garage sales for Skateboard / Surf Memorabilia


On our way out, we stopped to enjoy the treasure of skateboard memorabilia adorning the restaurant walls. Mitchell Dwelley, the owner’s son explained that between 1999 and 2006, his father Gary would rummage through the Los Angeles area garage sales, while Mitchell and his brother attended water polo practice. There is so much history to absorb and enjoy!

Beach Break Pros:


  • You can order anything you want from the menu Breakfast or Lunch;
  • There was a coloring page and crayons for the kids;
  • The service was quick and friendly;
  • The ambiance is very unique and interesting;
  • If you sit in the patio – you can bring your doggie;
  • Portions are large and the food is fresh and tasty.

Beach Break Cons:


  • The restaurant does not accept reservations and can be quite busy. However, they offer coffee while you wait – you just have to ask;
  • We were seated in the patio and had to swat flies.

Oma's Review:  Beach Break Café is a"must" if you are in the in Oceanside, California area.  The food and service are both great while the ambiance is refreshing.  Everyone enjoyed their food and no one left hungry!


A friend recommended that Oma try the Steak ‘n Eggs – so that is what Oma will order next time we visit.

Oh, be sure to visit  the bathroom at the Beach Break Café, even if you do not need to use it - both the ladies and men’s rooms are works of art.
