As a customer of The Ramona Café for many years, I miss the great meals they serve when I am traveling around the world. I have a funny occupation; I have been designing and creating restaurant point of sale software for Microsoft for the past 20 years, so I am in restaurants nearly every day of my life. I also get the chance to go and visit the customers in the field. Eating breakfast at Denny’s is a 2 or 3, and eating breakfast at The Ramona Café is an 8 or 9.
I typically have the ABC omelet (avocado, bacon, and cheese) with cubed potatoes (minus the onions), sourdough toast, and a side of crispy bacon. I have never had a bad meal and I have eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner there for over 10 years.
Typically the weekends are a little crazy until about 1pm (though they serve breakfast until 2:30) which is great for my wife as she enjoys a Buffalo burger with cheddar cheese, bacon, and mushrooms, and I enjoy my breakfast. After our great meal, we typically head to Julian to walk through the town and shop (plus to walk off the calories).
We use to live in Ramona and I would visit more frequently, though when I am in town, I drive from La Jolla to enjoy a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
