Mission Cafe (Gaslamp/SOMA)
San Diego, CA 92101
Price: Least Expensive
This funky, casual eatery attracts an eclectic crowd with its stellar breakfast and lunch menu. Even with three locations in the San Diego area, weekends often mean waits.
Breakfast favorites are all here. If you are carb loading consider the cinnamon bread French toast. It's considered to be the best and you can order just one slice as a "side." Do it! Looking for something less indulgent, the Zen breakfast offers egg whites, brown rice, grilled veggies and teriyaki tofu. We suggest getting extra salsa on the side for the egg whites and veggies. Yum! The all-day menu also serves up sandwiches, wraps, Mexican dishes and salads.
(Open daily 7 am to 3 pm); Vegetarian friendly; Expect to wait 30 minutes on weekends if you arrive later than 9a.
