The Mission in East Village is a quaint spot on J Street in the East Village. Parking is really difficult in the area as there is primarily only street parking available. We stopped in on a weekday for a late brunch and there were only...a few other tables while we were there. We were greeted cheerily by the staff as we walked in and the service overall was prompt and friendly throughout our meal. We ordered a Chorizo Mission Omelette and a Tortilla Soup to share. The thought of jalapeños, chipotle crema, tomato and jack cheese with the chorizo had us really looking forward to a spicy delectable omelette but we found it a bit bland so that was a disappointment. We added plenty of hot sauce to spice it up a bit. The Tortilla Soup was super fresh and tasty and we highly recommend that and would order it again. As for atmosphere, I would probably recommend sitting inside to avoid the potential homeless encounters in the area. Definitely a solid brunch spot with excellent service.More

Love the variety, and the food is always fresh, service is prompt, and the servers are very pleasant. I am a breakfast food person, but the salads, quesadillas etc. are great.

Breakfast with friends is always a treat & this one at the Mission definitely was. Not only wonderful company, we were beautifully looked after & given a menu full of intriguing delights-all very Mexican based & food you felt good about eating! Mainly vegetarian but...there was always a meaty side if desired & we all loved those heavenly black beans. Another fabulous start to the day.More

We had breakfast on a Monday morning. We were able to walk right in and choose a table. Cute place with lots of interesting art. We chose this place because I knew they had gluten free options. I ended up getting the Mission Rosemary breakfast...which included eggs, rosemary potatoes, rosemary toast, and added bacon. The rosemary potatoes and rosemary toast were delicious. It was hard to believe the toast was gluten free. I would have liked to have tried the gluten free French toast. My husband had the breakfast quesadilla. Reasonably priced meal that kept us full. Service was good. We would definitely go back if we lived in the area.More

My family really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at this restaurant. All of the food and drinks were delicious, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. The pancake portion was too large for our kids, they could have split an order. If...we lived in town this would definitely be one of our go to places to eat.More

The food here is not great at all and it is not reasonably priced. The service is fast and kudos to Maria. The food is basically Mexican themed breakfast offerings. The beverages were average in quality, specially the coffee. I also ordered hot chocolate but...it was not hot and it was lacking in flavor and richness.More

We came across this as we were driving around and exploring the area. We arrived just before they closed for the day. Plenty of parking on the street. I had the veggie sandwich and my husband had the tortilla soup with some type of sandwich....The price was reasonable and the service good. I noted many people having breakfast with drinks. We would return if in the area.More

Per the reviews on TripAdvisor, I had to check out The Mission in East Village. Located a short walk from downtown, I went for a glorious brunch and it sure did not disappoint! The turkey sandwich on rosemary bread was delicious. The herbs gave an...excellent aftertaste to the savoury turkey and bacon. A tad more mayonnaise and it would have been perfect. The sidesalad was generous, although I would have preferred less balsamic. I went for the banana and strawberry pancakes for dessert, which were one of the best I ever had, mainly thanks to the wonderful garniture. The atmosphere was tranquil on a Saturday in January. Maria stood for genuinly nice service! I had a big smile on my face for the rest of the day.More
