There are three Mission restaurants scattered across San Diego. We went to the one near "J" and 13th downtown. What a nice find.

We sat out on the porch that surrounds two sides of the restaurant. Service was warm and friendly, courteous and professional.

I ordered the roast beef hash that came with rosemary potatoes and toast, and perfectly scrambled eggs. My only complaint is that the coffee was weak but most folks would probably think it was great. Being from the Pacific Northwest, I love it strong.

My wife ordered the pancakes with banana slices, blueberries and raspberries embedded in them. For $2 more it included scrambled eggs and two thick slices of bacon.

This was our best meal in San Diego and we plan to go back again before we leave.

We ventured into The Mission for breakfast and it was delicious. We had the homemade granola, fresh fruit, and yogurt and the breakfast burritos. The portion sizes are kind of small, so be sure to order sides if you are hungry. The service was good.

This is my second favorite breakfast place in San Diego. Arrive before 9am on the weekends if you don't want to wait, but if you have to stand around for a bit it is worth it.

Average food & service ... Noisy! We waited quite awhile. Once seated we waited for beverages. Once we ordered we waited again for food. Breakfast should not take 1-1/2 hours

Having been once before about a year ago, we knew a return visit to The Mission was in order during this trip to San Diego. We arrived later on a Monday morning, and the wait wasn't bad at all. The wait staff was friendly and the food was amazing, both in flavor and presentation. The Strawberry Banana pancakes, and the Rancheros Verde were both delicious.
