Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

There’s a new breakfast and brunch place in Carmel Valley, at the Del Mar Highlands shopping center. Always busy and open every day, they dish up plenty to be thrilled about.
Originally opened in Colorado, they’ve expanded the chain out to San Diego in recent years. They also have a location in Hillcrest.
Their specialties are of course the egg-centric dishes and the pancake dishes.
For the eggs: notable options include a wide variety of omelettes, the breakfast burrito, corned beef hash, huevos rancheros, a breakfast sandwich, and even breakfast tacos!
For the pancakes: they have a number of sweet pancake options on the menu, with one pancake of the day. If you can’t decide on just one, order the pancake flight and sample three! The pineapple upside down and carrot cake varieties are quite good! They also have plain, blueberry, and chocolate chip if you’re a bit less adventurous with your pancakes.
Additionally, they have french toast and a number of brunch options if you’re in the mood for lunchtime fare.
Juices, specialty coffees, and alcoholic morning beverages like mimosas and bloody marys round out the menu.
Come hungry, come early, and be prepared to wait, especially if you have a large party. They don’t take reservations or call ahead seating. Service is a bit slow since it’s always crowded, so it’s a great place to catch up with friends and family.
