#1 Best Breakfast in San Diego

This is one place where waiting for a table proves worthwhile – The Mission is the local favorite for hearty, unusual breakfasts and lunches. Fill up on Chino-Latino and American dishes like the Zen Breakfast (scrambled egg whites, braised tofu, brown rice, and lightly grilled veggies), the Desayuno Burrito (tortilla filled with potatoes, eggs, cheese, beans, and chipotle cream), strawberry-granola pancakes, and roast beef hash and eggs. Great coffee; wonderful quesadillas, wraps and tacos for lunch. Prices are reasonable and portions are huge with some saying a stack of pancakes can feed multiple people. The Mission is also very kid-friendly.

The Mission Restaurant was selected as one of the top 25 breakfast spots in the country by USA Today and Zagat.

36 Hours in Downtown San Diego

The Mission restaurant is a San Diego institution, serving Mexican-inspired breakfasts and lunches at three outposts. The branch (1250 J Street, 619-232-7662) in SOMA (for South of Market, but no one calls it that), in an old plantation-style building that sits in the shadow of the Petco Park baseball stadium, is light, airy and filled with young hipsters from the surrounding lofts. Try a breakfast quesadilla or a Mission croissant stuffed with eggs and cheese.

15 Must-Try Lunch & Dessert Spots in San Diego

The Mission is a local favorite that serves affordable, health-minded Chino-Latino cuisine with a whimsical edge. Stop in to this urban bistro for lunch and try one of their exquisite and unique quesadillas, the Baja shrimp wrap, or any of their gluten-free or vegetarian options. Local restaurateurs, Fay Nakanishi, Deborah Helm, and Thomas Fitzpatrick came together to open the original Mission Café & Coffeehouse in Mission Beach in 1997. Since this time the restaurant transformed and expanded to two additional locations in North Park and SoMa East Village. The Mission has been praised by numerous renowned publications for its award-winning eats.
