Great coffee, very good service, good food

We were seated quickly, waited on quickly and let to sit to enjoy our breakfast and coffee. Granola and fruit was good as was the cinnamon toast with fresh fruit - all very fresh. Would go back.

Have been for breakfast numerous times and will continue going back. The food is great. Only downside is that it is noisy. Besides that it is a gem.

Breakfasts are amazing, espcially the Mexican specialties. The size of the plates is stupendous, so maybe share - if you have kids, they should definitely share. The service and quality are worth it.

We had excellent breakfasts in a laid back atmosphere. Food is great, especially huge fluffy pancakes and latino inspired dishes. Staff is nice and service is relaxed, in a pleasant way. Very popular so difficult to find a seat even during school days. Coffee is especially good and super-recommended.

Love, love, love this place! The food was so fresh and inspired! Go check out their menu. As far as breakfast/lunch (brunch) style restaurants, this place is one of the best I've ever visited. To top it off, the service was more southern hospitality than anything. Our waitress was so incredibly kind, thoughtful, friendly and she was always on top... More

The prices on the breakfast menu range from $6 to $12 per plate. Most egg dishes are accompanied with their tasty rosemary tomatoes with just enough spice to make each bite interesting. Their chicken apple sausage and banana pancakes are wonderful. Although it is a busy place for breakfast, we were seated quickly, accommodated with a high chair, and served... More

Ooooh lala - The Mission is amazing!!! The coffee is excellent. The Latino breakfast plates - ohhhhhhhhh man! The BACON! We didn't order pancakes but the people next ot us did, and I must warn you, a plate of pancakes is about as big as a birthday cake!! They looked delicious but for sure enough for 2 or 3 people....

Great food! Great service! The only reason it's not 5-stars because it's pretty pricey. For 6 of us at breakfast it was $84.40.

We ate here on some advice from my cousin who lives in San Diego. So glad we did, the morning before we tried Olive Cafe a few blocks down which was just okay so we wanted to see if this was in fact a better option. As other TA reviews state, you have to wait, we ate here on a... More
