Such a great way to appreciate our state's history!

The Mission San Diego De Acala in Mission Valley and San Luis Rey in Oceanside are two gems to visit to help get firsthand knowledge and an authentic feel for our remarkable history!

Good and wholesome. We enjoyed the hint of rosemary on the skillet toast. We had hash at Hash House a Go Go a couple days earlier and thought it was much better than the Mission version. Perhaps their style was just too subtle for my taste

Went here while accompanying my wife to San Diego for a conference. Was on my own for most meals, so had some good opportunities to explore the East Village and Gaslamp District. Good reviews brought me here, but attentive staff and excellent food will bring me back. Had breakfast, Roast Beef Hash, couldn't have been any better. Well maybe if... More

Had breakfast here with my husband recently on our first morning in San Diego and it set the tone for the rest of our trip! The atmosphere was great. We arrived for breakfast about 7:30am and had our choice of seats on the patio. There were a few people stopping in for coffee and pastries to go but the place... More

Excellent service, delicious food, huge portions, and great prices. Our server was so kind and was super knowledgable about the menu. She made great suggestions for my husband and I. Will certainly return on our next visit to San Diego.

We were in town for 48 hours and wanted the best food possible. I wish we would have gone to Snooze (another breakfast spot) both days. They do have fresh flour tortillas here...which we can't get in our area...so I liked that. The French toast looked pretty but was just ok and pretty sweet for my taste. We first went... More

This is a good breakfast spot. Notice I said good, not nice. Not somewhere I would have picked to go but my brother thought we should give it a try. Not a great atmosphere but the food was good. I got cinnamon bread, which was quite delectable, different from the cinnamon French toast my brother got that he seemed to... More

Read about this on the internet, so we gave it a try. Great service and food! Large portions, I had corn beef hash and potatoes, all delicious. My son had blueberry pancakes and he said they were wonderful!
