Great Breakfast Spot near the Beach

We were directed to this spot by fellow tourists as we had prepared to stop in at another spot that was a block or two closer to our vacation rental. That turned out to be great advice. There was a short wait when we arrived a little after 8:00 for breakfast. Once we were seated, we had warm... read more

Traveling with family--everyone enjoyed their food. Alot of southwestern type breakfast options...which I love. i.e. breakfat burriros etc. But also offers smoothies, and typical american fare. Cute place right in the heart of Mission Beach. Parking is tough.

We were told this is the place to have breakfast. Food was average to good, service the same. But the wait times and slow serving times really made us think we probably will not be back. The pancakes are very good, the egg dishes at least what you would expect. We were a party of 6 so we got to... More

My family had a very nice lunch experience. Large plates with genuine quesadillas. The largest. Blueberry pancakes for my daughter. Fast service. Nice staff. Good choice!

My wife and I went here with our three boys and were blown away! I had the papas Loco and they were incredible! I also ordered one piece of French toast (not on the menu) and can agree with our wonderful server (Jenn) that it is incredible. They make the bread there and it is like a cinnamon role baked...

I wanted to love this place as I had done nothing but talk it up after reading many reviews and talked to a few locals. So, when my family and I made the decision to eat here, I was kinda disappointed in the food. The service was good, the ambiance is nice but the food was just so-so. My meal... More

Great food as always. Went during prime time, had about a 30 minute wait. Very well worth it. All the dishes look delicious. I don't think you can find a bad meal here and you won't leave hungry. Parking isn't easy but you find it if you try. Mission Beach is just behind you and the Pacific ocean just a... More

We have the internet to thank for this delicious breakfast place. We had to wait close to 25 minutes to get a table, which I was loathe to do (I get hangry quickly in the morning) but it took so long to find a place to park and every other restaurant in the area seemed just as busy so we... More
