My wife and I stopped in this morning for breakfast and both loved it. The mission French toast was perfect. Not too heavy, yet very tasty. Recommended.

Very down to earth restaurant. Offer good food and expect you to go as soon as you finish for high turnover. Food is good and big in size at good price. Could definitely share. Lots of choices for pancakes. Good breakfast place.

Had to wait for a table but it was very much worth it. Great specials, great eggs Benedict (my gauge for all restaurants) and friendly friendly service.

Came for breakfast and enjoyed the latin style cuisine. I ordered the vegetarian plato con huevos verde and it was delicious. The savory and slightly spicy tamatillo sauce mixed with the sweet corn tamales was a marriage made in food heaven! I also got a slice of toasted cinnamon bread, because, why not?!

Ate here for Sunday brunch. Atmosphere was adequate. Food was adequate. Rosemary potatoes were good. Not at all worth the fifty dollar price tag for two. Have had better basic breakfasts at many small diners.

They are open early until 3:00 pm, so breakfast is their focus, but they have a lunch menu too. Service is friendly. Food was fantastic. Their specialty is cinnamon bread French toast, and it did not disappoint, with 3 huge slices. The breakfast quesadilla is outstanding, esp paired with a Bloody Mary. Parking is a challenge, but the food is... More

A great breakfast place sandwiched between Mission Bay and the ocean. Authentic cuisine and reasonable pricing. Show up early to get a table or be prepared to wait your turn.

The wait wasn't too long. I had the breakfast quesadillas. They were delicious. My husband had the roast beef hash plate and the mission French toast. They were also good. He didn't care for the rosemary toast but I loved it. Would definitely eat here again.
