If you Snooze, you’ll never lose

The Pancake Flight includes three flavors: Peanut Butter Cup Pancake, Caramel apple Pancake and OMG! French Toast.

When Snooze opened in Del Mar last fall, it didn’t take long for locals to wake up and take notice. On a typical day, this mainly breakfast- oriented eatery is buzzing with activity, as people relax over steaming cups of organic java and a hearty meal. Some bring their dogs and soak up the sun on the patio; others find comfort in the “retro-future” dining room’s crescent-shaped booths.
