Healthy, creative dishes and a friendly staff make this art-filled East Village café a local favorite for breakfast and lunch. Hungry San Diegans wait 30 minutes or more to enjoy fluffy scrambled eggs with chicken apple sausage or strawberry banana pancakes with a side of eggs and bacon. Also popular are Mexican-inspired dishes like chilaquiles, breakfast burritos, and quesadillas. Outstanding rosemary, cinnamon, brown, and gluten-free breads are house-made and the Mission Mocha coffee and Mexican hot chocolate are like liquid desserts. Lunch favorites include border-inspired chicken pesto quesadillas, tamales verdes, and grilled chicken tacos. Locations also in Mission Beach and North Park.
