Deserves 5 stars as, although it was really busy, there was a good reason... The food is delicious ! We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and even more so considering I have a dairy allergy and this was more than catered for. We had to wait for a table at a weekend but not for long and it was worth the... More

Upon this year's trip to San Diego, we eagerly headed to North Park for our past fav "The Mission". Our first visit this trip was with the family for breakfast. Parking is street parking, and we drove around the block several times until we scored a vacant spot and walked two blocks. You may want to drop someone off to... More

We chose The Mission in North Park because it was rated #1 on TripAdvisor and close to the Zoo. We had to drive around the block a few times to find parking but it was worth it. We were greeted right away by a smiling face. it was busy but still had plenty of tables. Our waiter was attentive and... More

We came here for breakfast as it was close to the hotel and rated highly on Tripadvisor. It was disappointing. The staff were courteous but not cheerful or friendly like every other place we visited in San Diego, they were not attentive either and it wasn't a busy Monday morning. The fastest thing about the place was the bill which... More

This restaurant is very casual. The French Toast is excellent! It is a huge portion, enough for 2 in my opinion. Just a block from the beach.

The pancakes were perfect, light and fluffy, we got the strawberry granola, nice crunch. The rosemary potatoes are amazing, must have, well seasoned crispy on the outside smashed redskins. The chilaquiles were only left down. Had they called them breakfast nachos it would have been great because they were very tasty. But I was actually expecting chilaquiles not tortilla chips... More

Excellent restaurant, a friend of mine recommend it and I was pleased, the service was very friendly and charm. Prices are ok and food quality superb. We went on sunday and was crowded and has to wait 30-45 mins our 8 people table, so if you´re in a hurry or hungry take your time. Worth it!!!

Went to this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. Believe the reviews!!! Very popular as we had to wait 10 minutes for a table (never a bad sign). Portions are huge and the food is superb. Ended up going back again.

We walked for about a mile to get to this place and are glad we did. The menu was extensive with loads to choose from, I got a little lost in it to be honest, so opted for the look around the packed restaurant method to see if anything caught my eye and saw a guy tucking into something that...
