    The Crest Cafe is by far my favorite place for lunch in San Diego. The menu has some innovative and tasty items, and the Oui Oui Burger is the greatest. The decor almost too modern for San Diego, which is a good thing It's original, not your typical commercial spot. All the waiters are friendly and service is fast.

    Great people... Attempting to purchase a gift certificate for a friend moving to SD the staff did everything possible to accomodate me. Emailing back and forth several times in my last minute effort of trying to give a friend a gift before moving from Chicago the owner and staff I spoke to were SOOOO nice! That's rare to come by..

    Great little breakfast spot I've visited this cafe a handful of times, and to my recollection, I've only ever ordered one thing. To the best of my knowledge, that is the Hangover omelet. This comes with Jalapenos (not too few, not too many), avocado, spicy chicken sausage, and jack cheese, topped with a chimichurri sauce. I have no idea what a chimichurri sauce is, but sprinkle on some table-side Tapatio hot-sauce, throw some ketchup on the very well done potatoes, and you have yourself a great breakfast.

    Solid breakfast spot where the lines aren&#39 ;t too long. Order Sam the Cooking Guy's Blueberry French Toast! My wife had the Eggs Benedict though, and the poached eggs were like hard-boiled eggs.

    This place is my favorite comfort place!! Whenever I need a meal to cheer me up I ALWAYS think of crest!! The food is fabulicious!!!! Portions sizes are just right...not too big but definitely very filling. I've probably eaten here about 10 times now and service has been hit or miss...sometimes it's great and sometimes I think the staff is still struggling from the night before. But even with so-so service, it's never deterred me from wanting to go back. Just because the food is soooooo yummy!!
