  • What They Say

    *  *  *  *  *

    “Breakfast overlooking the Pacific Ocean - The best place for breakfast in San Diego on a sunny day! They serve lunch, which is also very good. Casual walk-up to order, food brought to your table, with a dog friendly patio. There is no better way to start the day than sitting on the patio at Caroline's, overlooking the ocean in La Jolla near the Scripps pier, enjoying a better than usual breakfast from their creative menu. That, combined with the breathtaking view are some of the finest moments a day can offer. Af few steps away and you can walk off your meal on the beach. Wish they served dinner at sunset."
