This place was recommended to me. i had the chicken Apple sausage with eggs. Big portions of tasty food. My friends were very satisfied with the roast beef hash and the zen breakfast. Though the waitstaff seemed rushed, they were very friendly. Great place for breakfast.

Had the roast beef hash and it was great. Wife had the rancheros verdes, needed a little more flavor. Friendly staff. Small place so get there early.

This place was quite surprising. I was a bit scared of the flavors and combinations. But each dish was great. I had the french toast, which i particularly liked. It's not your traditional french toast. I also liked the soy chorizo and added that to the breakfast dishes. The flavors of the chilaquilles was perfect. At least I thought so... More

We were a little concerned when we arrived as about 50 people were outside waiting for a table. We were told that the wait time would be about 25 minutes. We waited 35, but it was worth it. Breakfast/brunch menu is full of options; several with a Southwestern flair. I had the Rosemary breakfast (most items except the egg had... More

I'm not sure what all of the fuss is about with The Mission. My fiancé and I had breakfast there on our last day in San Diego. It's a funky little place, but it's also in a really bad part of town. We parked a few blocks down from the restaurant, got out of the car and noticed in the... More

We had breakfast here one weekday morning and it was packed! There is a good choice of healthy and also comforting food. I had the roast beef hash, which came with eggs, and a massive wedge of homemade Rosemary bread.....delicious! Prices are reasonable, service is good and the portions will leave you feeling full for hours!

Outstanding breakfast--very tasty and presented very nicely. Service is gently attentive as well. They do offer vegetarian selections and a gluten menu, but not much for vegans. Portions are generous and calorically dense, so don't be tempted to over-order! Don C.

I had breakfast there at 9 am on a Tuesday morning. The service was fantastic . Obviously well managed. Coffee and water was refilled continually and my breakfast came in 5 minutes. It was not crowded I believe people should know I ordered the rosemary potatoes, with,jalapeños, avocado, black beans, and sour cream with two fried eggs. So wonderfully fresh.... More

In town with family, we descended upon The Mission one Saturday morning. As serious travelers, we are often at a loss for something interesting for breakfast - this place was amazing. Crowded, noisy and busy, it nonetheless had terrific service (smiles from everyone) and even a nice chat with the manager. Coffee was wonderful, hotcakes and French toast the best... More
