“Very good breakfast. Reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Rated No. 10 restaurant so, we decided to go for breakfast. Although parking is an issue since it is one block from the beach, it was well worth it. We enjoyed a very large order of three blueberry pancakes the hash steak and potatoes with rosemary bread. While the steak was not to my liking - I prefer corn beef hash - it was good. I thought the potatoes were very good as well as the bread. So, if not for so many other breakfast restaurants rated highly, we would go back. Really enjoyed it and recommend it highly especially because the price was reasonable.

“Eclectic and Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Yuppy, but not. Interesting and eclectic for sure. The banana granola pancakes are tasty and beautiful.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Went for breakfast with my family. Long line (usually a good sign) that moved quickly. The bright and fresh interior was packed, but not crowded. The Mission has a varied menu with a lot of options. Service was prompt and friendly. Food had ample portions, top-notch presentation, and even better taste. Only regret is that we did not find this gem earlier in our trip. If you're driving, note that finding a street parking spot can be a challenge. There's a pay lot across the street if (when) you give up.

“Brilliant food, excellent ambiance and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Went for a brunch with a friend. They were super packed but were were lucky to to find a table quickly. Numerous options for Breakfast. The two of us shared CHICKEN APPLE SAUSAGE & EGGS and BLUEBERRY PANCAKES and that was so much food that we had to literally drag ourselves out. Excellent food that was very tastefully presented. Great coffee as well! Oh and the staff was wonderful. Our served saw on the feedback card that we were visiting from Germany and immediately stuck up a conversation in broken German - turns out he was an exchange student in Germany once. Such a positive experience overall! Finding a parking spot close to the cafe is tricky though.
