Welcome to our new photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit San Diego's restaurants and bars to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. In honor of Greasy Spoons Week, we headed to Coronado's Night & Day Cafe.[Photos: Edwin Real]
Since 1927 (though their shirts say 1929), Night & Day Cafe in Coronado has been serving up unpretentious dishes to hungry locals and tourists alike. Breakfast is available 24 hours a day, but the recent introduction of Mexican food to the menu has only added to the many reasons to come to this diner on Orange Avenue; a beer and wine license is an attraction too. The portions are huge, prices are reasonable, and the people watching is plentiful. A seat at the counter means you can watch Night & Day's short order cooks sling your order before your very eyes.
Whether you're day-tripping on the island, visiting Navy buddies on leave, or just craving chocolate chip pancakes at 3 a.m., Night & Day Cafe offers you both a gathering place and a destination for greasy spoon goodness, day or night.
