Most notably known as serving up the “best breakfast in town,” The Mission Café is one breakfast restaurant you have to check out. The menu is amazing, but makes it difficult to order only one breakfast. With everything from banana blackberry pancakes, rosemary potatoes, fresh smoothies and baked goods, you might want to bring a few people along so everyone can share! The Mission Café supports the local art scene by featuring artwork throughout the restaurant, adding to its energetic and vibrant atmosphere. For the past 10 years, The Mission Café has been serving locals and tourists and everyone just keeps on coming back, so much so that you should plan on arriving before 9 am because everyone wants “the best breakfast” and the line tends get long. If you wake up late, no worries, grab a coffee and enjoy the music from inside and the beach scene outside while you wait for a table. The food is most definitely worth the wait and will keep you coming back, if not waking up earlier.
The Mission Café is located at 3795 Mission Blvd. and is open from 7 am until 3 pm daily.
