This quarter’s featured business is Daddy’s City Diner.

Located on 265 Reservation Rd Ste. F., Daddy’s City Diner is family owned and operated and is a Marina favorite. Serving up great homemade favorites such as pancakes, omelettes, chicken, chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, fries, burgers and more.

My father used to make the best S.O.S. when we were growing up and I have never seen it served in a restaurant until now. And they make it just the way my dad used to make it. My son now loves it and orders a side of it with his breakfast every time.

Our family loves good authentic filipino food. We were quite surprised to find some of our favorites on the menu such as the Filipino breakfast which includes garlic fried rice, eggs, tocino, and longanisa.

Service is always fast and very friendly. There is usually a crowd just about any time of the day. With so many Marina regulars, it feels like the local hangout of Marina.

But dont take my word for it, read what others have to say about it.

“I’ve only been coming here for a few months and I definitely recommend it! Great breakfast spot, the staff is pretty attentive and super friendly…I always order the Filipino breakfast =] (garlic fried rice, eggs, spam, or Tocino, or longanisa) thumbs up!” Jade L. – Yelp Reviewer

“Came here for the first time yesterday. I’ve been meaning to try the place out for a long time, but never made the drive from Monterey to Marina when in town. Totally worth the extra 10 minutes! I had corned beef hash and eggs- nothing special, but cooked extra crispy exactly as I requested. Kids breakfasts were a great deal. A half-dozen mini-pancakes were under $5, as was half a Belgian waffle. The best dish by far was the Filipino breakfast. Three eggs, longanisa, and tocino over a mountain of fried rice-way too much food for one person. We could have probably gotten one order for our whole family. Next time I’d order fried eggs to let the yolk soak into the rice. Service was fast and friendly. Lots of people coming in, despite it being mid morning on a weekday. Ample parking, but easy to miss the location. It’s in a strip mall behind a McDonald’s, with the signage very hard to see from the street.” – Bruce C – Yelp Reviewer

“Love this place. I don’t live in the area, and I found it thanks to Yelp when I was in town and looking for breakfast. It is now a favorite breakfast stop when my travels bring me nearby. Friendly service. Prices that match the quantity/quality of food. Things I can’t find everywhere, like the Filipino Breakfast or Linguica Omelet. A lot of side item options for the breakfasts, like rice, biscuits, pancakes, toast, or fruit. I don’t know if it is family run, but it feels family run. Efficient coffee refills.” – Mstori – Yelp Reviewer
