They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with live entertainment, including belly dancers on Friday and Saturday nights. Hours: Tues - Fri 8am – 9pm and Sat - Sun 7am – 9pm, closed Mondays.
The menu is very complete. The name of each dish is in Armenian and Greek/Arabic with a good description in English. The region is heavily into lamb and the menu represents this.
We were there for breakfast. We had the choice of a huge menu. There are eggs as you like them, omelets and scrambletts - with traditional Armenian/Mediterranean and American fillings as well as lamb kebabs, souvlaki and pita bread. I had a three-egg meal with scrambled eggs, lamb kebab, cottage potatoes and pita bread. My wife ate the omelet with spinach and feta cheese. They were both excellent. The coffee was great and the service was wonderful. The tab came to $28 for this high-end, delicious breakfast. Wholly and highly recommended.

This style of food is very healthful and my companions were pleasantly surprised by the beer-it was very good. Many downtown restaurants are more expensive than the Armenian Cafe so this is a good alternative for budget-conscious, cholesterol-watching diners. As in many beach towns, downtown Carlsbad has some tourist traps-as a general principle, the fancier they look, the more you should check if only fellow tourists are going into them. Ask locals; also don't be put off by plain decor,as smart restauranteurs here know they have to survive after summer's gone.They don't overspend on decor and concentrate on providing good value.
