    Nothing beats a nice morning walk with some kick ass breakfast that doesn't break the bank.

    The service is great, it's an enjoyable environment and the food is absolutely amazing... during breakfast you get a very beautiful view of the beach.... Definitely worth coming if you're in the La Jolla area.

    Excellent casual spot for a quick brunch. Good food, generous pour on the mimosa. Great access to beach to take a stroll after you eat.

    The food is good and the staff friendly. But what makes this a great place is the stunning view.

    Gorgeous panoramic beachfront view... With great food, generous portions and fair prices you can't get a better sunny day introduction to this beautiful part of San Diego. That's what you'll find at Caroline's... A hidden gem... Have a little slice of Southern California lifestyle with your breakfast. Then walk down the stairs to one of the prettiest beaches in the world. When out of towners visit, THIS is the first place we take them!

    "Great location..."

    Practically on the beach, the location of Caroline's can't be beat. This is a great place to take a break from strolling the beach for a cup of coffee, tea, breakfast or lunch. I had lunch there twice while visiting La Jolla and the food was great. This was a great place to stop on the way back from a long walk on the beach. The modern architecture is great too.

    “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."
