Beach Grass Cafe Restaurant Review

: Despite the fairly austere setting and haphazard, often slow service, Beach Grass Café produces some tasty food. Breakfast draws a crowd, especially on the weekends, and for good reason --- the chilaquiles, scrambled eggs and corn tortillas in homemade red chile sauce with shavings of Asiago, are first-rate. Dive into a plate of upside-down pineapple pancakes, or try the maple, bacon and cheddar version. A medley of eggs Benedict variations includes additions like crab cakes or house-made chicken sausage. Lunch is equally appealing, and also gently priced. We recommend the ahi salad, grilled salmon sandwich with sun-dried tomato mayo, and Kalua pork tacos with smoked mozzarella. The vibe is laid back and casual, just like the low-fi town of Solana Beach.
