Went for breakfast with my brother and 5 year old nephew. Waitstaff was amazingly patient with us. The food was very good. My nephew had pancakes, I had eggs and bacon my brother had the breakfast quesadilla. I will definitely come again on my next visit.

We stopped in for breakfast. Staff was great, quick. In addition to my pancakes I ordered a fresh baked croissant. It was the best croissant I have ever had. Delivered to the table piping hot. My wife had rosemary potatoes with scrambled eggs and avocado which came with rosemary bread...she loved it! The only item they need to work on... More

Came here on the basis of other excellent reviews. Actually surpassed my expectations! Many choices for the strictest of diets. I had the French toast and it was perfect.

I've been to The Mission about a dozen times. Sometimes the food is pretty good, sometimes it's great. It's a little pricey and I wish the servings were a bit bigger, but I'd say its a good breakfast spot overall.

This joint is popping. Luckily on a Sunday morning we only had to wait 20 minutes for anseat and 20 min for our meal. My friend had the Strawberry and Banana Pancakes. So tasty and huge. Why do restaurants make pancakes the size of your head and give you three of them. Too much. 😉 That is always my worry... More

Very good coffee, friendly and attentive service. Had blueberry pancakes and breakfast quesadilla, both were exceptionally good. Muffins looked amazing but breakfast servings were so big we couldn't eat them. Excellent vegetarian and gluten sensitive options too.

Several colleagues and I were referred to this restaurant by our hotel. Turns out that the locals frequent it regularly. We had the choice of breakfast options at 2 pm which was wonderful since we hadn't had breakfast yet. The plates were large and the food very fresh. Our waiter suggested variations of the menu items to satisfy our individual... More

This is one of the best establishments I've ever been to in my life! The Desayuno Burritto was incredible, the coffee unbelievable, and the service was outstanding - way above and beyond for a small joint.

Mission is amazing! Gone there with my family a bunch of times and the rosemary potatoes and coconut french toast very good. i always get the Italian ice to drink. Only thing I would say that's negative is that there's super long lines though.

Had some great Mexican food for brunch. The service was great. This place is often busy, and you may have a little wait. But it is worth it. Good value for money.

Thank Mark H
