We had breakfast here on a Saturday. There was a short wait but it was totally worth it. The breakfast entrees are inventive and delicious. Lots of Mexican influence. The Hanger Steak Hash was absolutely delicious. The steak was tender and tasty. The rosemary toast was addictive. Every entree was creative and yummy. If you are in the area do... More

Our first breakfast in America. Great service. Great noisy busy atmosphere! The soy chorizo eggs were delicious. The kids' pancakes were insanely large.

My family and I really liked this breakfast place. I had the blueberry pancakes, and the were scrumptious! My son had a breakfast quesadilla and loved it! Good service too.

Mission is always busy but the food is great--especially for breakfast or brunch. Not really fancy. But is extremely popular with the locals so you know they are doing something right.

The food is good and actually not expensive considering how popular this place is. The rosemary potatoes and bread is excellent and this place is situated right on Mission Beach so there is a lot to see and do right around here. Unless you come very early you won't find any place to park which is the only downside

I returned to The Mission to eat breakfast (my favorite meal of the day). I had the breakfast quesadilla, my wife had the power breakfast and daughter had eggs & a side of yogurt & granola. All of the food was fresh and tasty! I will return to The Mission whenever I return to San Diego/Mission Beach!

Thank charles b
