Does anybody do it better?

Posted on

“My Coco’s” is located inEl Cajon,CA at1025 Fletcher Parkway.  It’s a nice building complete with an ecologically minded insulated wall, made of standard construction but on the outside of this restaurant, they’ve piled high a wall of dirt (maybe 42”) which grows nice green vegetation.  They’ve got plenty of seating available for diners plus they can host meetings at the same time.  I believe the Kiwanis were there when we went.

Coco’s offers three squares plus they’ve got a decent bakery with their showcase offering some mighty delectable pies, cookies and sometimes I’ll see a nice cake or two.  On a recent Saturday brunch, Nancy and I went in search of good waffles. Coco’s came through with a nice breakfast and great service.  They offer an upscale coffee but we’ve come to the point where we know we just don’t have the gourmet palette for gourmet coffee, so we enjoyed the standard roast of their generic coffee.  It’s good and priced right.

They offer a large array of pancakes reminiscent of I Hop’s multitude.  Given that I’m on a quest to find the tastiest of waffles I passed on the pancakes, the French toast, the crepes, omelettes (of which 7 offerings are looking very tasty), and the hearty egg traditional for the Belgian combo, which was nice and priced right.

Still looking for peak peach pie  (Marie Callendar’s, none better), we took home one single crusted peach pie with glaze because it looked so good.  The price is as good as it gets but I’m just going to have to buy another peach pie next week, ‘cause this still isn’t peak season.

Coco’s does family style as well as anyone, and better than most.  This location ( does a good job getting your food to you quickly and always with a smile.  Prices are very competitive.  If you try another location and find the wait a bit long, try another location, after talking to several locals, I learned some of the stores are mired in molasses.  They can be long in getting your order to you, but not so this one.
