I was expecting more after being to Snooze... The place is nice and the food was good (portions are really big) - but overall nothing special...

I am a sucker for properly made home fries. I do not like the proliferation of riced potatoes served as hash browns. I was excited to see home fries on the menu here and even more excited to taste them when they arrived. They were fried to the point of containing many bits of "scrapings", the parts that get burned... More

We found Mission through Trip Advisor when looking for a place to eat breakfast on our visit and are we glad we did! The menu has a little but of everything. The French toast, pancakes, bacon, and black bean with eggs burrito were all DELICIOUS!

I ate here while on vacation with my family. We showed up quite early on a Wednesday morning so there was no wait for a table. By the time we left the restaurant was full so I would recommend getting there early. I had the "Papas Loco", which was hash browns covered in black beans, jalapenos, cheese and salsa. My... More

The French Toast is delicious! we ordered the sausage/potatoes and 1 slice of french toast (else by default it comes with 3 slices). Both the food turn out to be delicious! The pan cakes suppposed to be famous too! but we are too full to order more plates... worth visiting place for food.

This place is a great breakfast spot, def one of the best in the city(note I didn't THE best). long waits(though by no means the longest in the city), good service and very good food. not "cheap eats" but its very good quality and therefore comparable(most dishes are about $9-14). its consistently good a very good choice(albeit not the best).But...

We had to wait 45 mins for a table for breakfast on a Saturday morning but when we sampled the food the reasons for its popularity became very clear. Efficient and attentive service, delicious food, excellent value.

Took my boyfriend here for breakfast. He had fruit pancakes and I had eggs with potatoes and chicken sausage. We were both really happy with our meals. My potatoes were seasoned perfectly and the sausage was super good too. Helpings were more than generous. The person who seated us was really nice and towards the end of our meal the... More

Mission Cafe & Coffee House was a great place for breakfast. The portions were huge and the prices very reasonable. The breakfast we had was of very high quality. The staff was very kind and friendly. Perhaps a few less menu items with rosemary would be nice. I would certainly return on another visit.

Coffee was good as well as the espresso. Chicken apple sausage breakfast was so good that I came back another day. The service was good and friendly. Their coffee drink menu was unique but I did not take advantage of it. Reasonable prices!
