We went to this cafe as it was near our hotel (the Catamaran) and I'd read so many positive reviews on here. It didn't disappoint! Purely based on reviews I ordered the cinnamon French toast - WOW! Never eaten anything like it, it was fantastic! Even my husband, who isn't a huge cinnamon fan, ate 1 of my 3 pieces... More

The Mission is great! Anything you order will be delicious. Their French toast is fluffy, their eggs are tasty, the potatoes fresh and their warm drinks are excellent. I wished we had more time in our most recent trip to San Diego to visit more than once, I have so many favorites on their menu! You may have to wait... More

From the warm greeting to tell us we would have a short wait before being seated, to the attentive waiter, to the great food, this place hit the spot.

Ate here after reading all the great TA reviews. Yum, yum, yum! As the reviews indicated, the line did move fast and we were seated w/in 20 min. The food is super fresh, ample and excellent. The lady next to me had the fruit with granola and it looked sooo good and the guy had the cinnamon french toast which... More

We had to pay $5 in a lot across the street - totally worth it. They were very busy, but we were seated quickly. Our very friendly waiter got our drinks to us right away, and our food was out in less than ten minutes. The guys had pancakes and I had eggs and rosemary potatoes. All great. If I... More

Came with a party of six and we were seated immediately and apparently before the rush. But by the noise level it seemed crowded. We all had something different and everyone really loved their food, but we all agreed it was a little too loud for us. Service was great; fast and friendly. If I lived closer, I would probably...

There are 3 locations in San Diego, but this is the original. A fantastic spot right in the heart of the beach community -- head across the street to the water right after. Great, hearty breakfasts (pancakes!). Lunch is served too, but the breakfast is why you come. Gluten friendly options too. Popular with locals, so come early to avoid... More

What a great breakfast joint! Everyone from our group of 4 enjoyed their meal thoroughly and all of it was excellent! Pancakes were extremely fluffy. Rosemary potatoes were great and just as good when we re-heated them (had to take our leftovers). Eggs were great as was the Breakfast Burrito. Had their coffee which was very good, too. Wish we...

I love breakfast and they really know how to make breakfast. I believe they even had a gluten free option for those with gluten sensitivity.
