Service was absolutely terrible. Unfortunately The food was mediocre. I could have went to ihop got the same service and the same mediocre food. I truly would not recommend. Honestly have no idea how it has five stars.

We had breakfast here our last morning in San Diego before driving up to LA. We arrived when they opened and enjoyed good food and good service. I think that we had an omelet and the granola banana pancakes.

Excellent in every way - a must when in Mission Bay! Despite crowd for late morning the wait time was negligible. Menu was full of tasty choices, must return to try them all. Generous portions prepared with tasty seasonings, full of flavor, perfect eating temperature,...and promptly.

I returned to The Mission restaurant in Mission Beach because of their wonderful breakfast selections. I enjoyed the savory "Mission Rosemary" with chicken apple sausage while my wife had the Cinnamon French Toast. This restaurant is located on a main street with no view of...the ocean, unlike many other restaurants in MB/PB, but the food and service are worth it. Lastly, there tends to be a rather long waiting line if you arrive during peak breakfast time.More

We stopped for a mid-morning breakfast in the middle of the week. Positive marks are warranted for both the atmosphere and service. Our food, however, was a disappointment - far short of expectations based on previous reviews. Scrambled eggs and a mushroom frittata were both...cold, and chicken sausage on both plates, while tasty, contained inexplicable bits of gristle. Lastly, the mushrooms in the frittata were severely burnt. Perhaps Tuesday was an off-day for the kitchen.More

It's reputation made me expect more from what we actually experienced. My kids very much enjoyed their blueberry pancakes and French toast, and the fruit bowl was nice, but my husband said his meal was "alright" and mine was just ok.

My husband and I came for breakfast and ordered two meals to share. One thing we ordered was the “Granola”, “coconut” banana pancakes. When they arrived we could see there was NO granola or coconut on the top. Ok. My husband cut them open and...NOPE! Only some thinly sliced bananas here and there. NO granola or coconut whatsoever. Very disappointed. We told our server who was very sweet and apologetic. She told the manager who took $3 off our bill. 🙄. We did NOT order banana ONLY pancakes. The Mission needs to change their menu to reflect that for $13,50 you will get plain pancakes with a few thin slices of bananas. Such a bummer!!!More
