Have been coming here for several years now whenever we return to San Diego and will be here again at the end of the year.This past Christmas holiday was no exception. Food always very good. Great selection of veggie dishes.Usually a wait for us but certainly worth it.

We only had a 10 minute wait for a table (perfect!). There are benches outside while you wait. There are stores across the street and the bay is only a block away, down the alley. I had a chai latte and the soy chorizo breakfast scramble. It was delicious! The leftovers from this meal lasted me 2 more mornings! The... More

Everything from the coffee and juices, to the crisp edge of the potatoes right off the grill, the fluffy pancakes w/ sweet fruit toppings on whimsically decorated plates, it's all delicious. A varied menu w/ great service, makes this a family favorite everytime we're in town.

We needed an early morning breakfast place to get the day started, and picked Mission, which opens at 7am. Pancakes and eggs were great, but the bacon was not as good. French toast was excellent, as was the coffee. Top flight service.

Two thumbs up!!!! Our food was very good, waiter was friendly and efficient. Rosemary hash was fantastic, going back for more as soon as I can. A bit pricey but worth every penny.

The food was great and the ingredients seemed fresh. Their house Bloody Marys were not good though; they were very watery. The blackberry banana smoothie was excellent. The pancake was big and fluffy. The mission croissant, a homemade croissant with eggs, cheese, tomatoes and scallions, was delicious. Their croissant was as good as a French croissant. The chicken apple sausage... More

We were looking for some place away from our hotel for a late morning breakfast that would reflect the local character of San Diego. We found it in the Mission Cafe. Despite a waiting line, we luckily were able to get right in. I had the hash. I have had hash throughout the country and this was as good as... More

My first trip was a solo breakfast. I had the veggie Tamales Verde. This meal has prompted a tamale craving that has last a month. The next day, I brought my partner so she could enjoy the experience. It was just as good as the first day. She had French toast and I had the soy chorizo and eggs with... More

Looking forward to a decent breakfast so got here early on a Sunday morning and ordered the chicken sausage and rosemary potatoes. The food came promptly, but it was on a cold plate and therefore everything cooled off very quickly so as a consequence it was a little unappetizing. Also the eggs were very stiff and in my opinion overcooked.... More

The wait was about 20-25 minutes for us, but worth it. The food and service is excellent, though the service was good, food delivery was longer than I would have expected. All in all you should plan for 45 minutes form arrival to getting your food. Portions are generous and prices good. All staff were great and if the food... More
