In the center of a thriving beach community, at the north end of San Diego was this location, the food and service were outstanding. Fresh ingredients, ample portions, unless you happen to time it just right, expect to wait in line, it's worth it. Casual, hard surface noisy but it's all a part of the casual beach side ambiance. It's... More

The three of us (me, hubby and 10 yr old son) were in San Diego over the Labor Day weekend. We went to this restaurant for breakfast on Saturday. The place was bustling but we were seated within 2 minutes. The decor inside is very artsy and tasteful. Our server was extremely competent, attentive and friendly. I ordered the Zen... More

This place was recommended by a friend who lives locally and we were not disappointed. When we arrived around 11.00 there was a long queue which to us meant that it must be good! We only waited 5 mn and we quickly sat and offered drinks. They have a nice menu and a very good selection of dishes from pancakes,... More

Tasty food and a nice alternative to the usual breakfast cafés. This was recommended by the valet at our hotel. I had pancakes and fruit, with their house coffee, everything was so fresh, I only wish we would have found this place a few days earlier! The staff were really friendly!

Great local place. Lot's to choose from. Even has a gluten free menu. I had a breakfast burrito which was fantastic. Pop in for a coffee or a meal. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

I lived a few blocks away for years and visited dozens of times. It's a hidden gem with great mexican style breakfast and a casual ambiance. The French Toast is still my wife and I favorite! We've put it to the test with places in L.A, San Fran, Vegas, NYC, resorts in Hawaii and the Caribbean... it is simply that... More

Mission Cafe at Mission Beach/Bay, a wonderful place to have breakfast. Me and some friends went there at 12 to 13pm, we must wait about 5-10 minutes, but it is no problem.Some people say that in the morning you have to wait more than 10 minutes, so take a good time to go. The Staff is really,really nice and good... More

We went to get breakfast on a Sunday morning. Though you will typically wait about 15-20 minutes for a table on the busy weekend breakfast rush, it is well worth the wait. The waitress was very attentive, despite the many tables and loud crowd. Pancakes were amazing! I got the strawberry banana panackes and they were huge! No wonder eggs... More

The restaurant is unassuming and you might pass it by so keep a sharp eye out. My family of five agreed that this place was our favorite, hands down. Breakfast was in a good portion, made with fresh ingrediants and VERY tasty. Rarely do my kids rave over food but at this restaraunt, they insisted everyone sample their dishes. Not... More
