The portions are huge - split entrees so you can try more items. The gluten free bread is outstanding and makes wonderful, wonderful french toast. The gluten free club sandwich was also fantastic. Service was friendly and fast. Fun neighborhood very close to the zoo.

This renovated brewery/saloon is charming, and very popular. Once you see the menu (and other diner's orders coming from the kitchen), you'll understand why. Prepare to tarry, and to need a nap after eating.

I go early to avoid the rush and it works every time. It is nothing gourmet but a guaranteed good breakfast at a fair price

Go to " The Mission" when visiting the San Diego area. I normally don't fall for the hype in tourest rags, but they were spot on about the mission. We visited the establishment in North Park, and from the moment we walked in, Frank recomments the Gingerbread Latte.. Watch out starbuck, they beat you on this one. Serve in a pint glass, it was the perfect temperature, color, and frothiness. It tasted pretty darn good as well.
For breakfast, my wife had the franch toast. Perfectly done and a huge portion. I had the roast beef hash and eggs. Sooooo good. The rosemary toast with their homemade jelly was simply delicious. The potatos were perfectly cooked and the best I ever had as they were seasoned perfectly.
Hands down, simply one of the best, if not the best, breakfasts to be had in San Diego.

Should you try "The Mission?" Just look at the picture and judge for yourself.

Super delicious, super fast and big portions. Cheap. Long line, but we sat at the bar so got in fast. Ate chorizo breakfast burrito and strawberry/banana pancakes. Fresh, gourmet and so good. We talked about it for a few days after. :) Note: Fresh squeezed OJ comes from a plastic jug with a label/UPC so really isn't fresh squeezed. Enjoy!
