What to Order:
THE SOUFFLE PANCAKES.
SERIOUSLY. These fluffy morsels are worth coming here alone. These delicacies take a little longer to make than other items, so ask for these when you place your drink order. It comes with two little cakes a little smaller than the size of your palm. This dish is great to split with a friend or eat on your own…because come on…I know you do (I do too.) 😏
My bestie swears by the Morning Glory Fried Rice and Crispy Potatoes. Get an order of each and fill yourself with warm deliciousness.
This breakfast/brunch place in San Diego has three locations: North Park, Mission Beach, and East Village. The Mission is a casual spot for locals to come grab a cup of coffee and read the paper kind of vibes.
What to Order:
THE MISSION FRENCH TOAST.
Hands down, it’s one of the best french toasts you will have for breakfast/brunch. It’s also massive with three large slices, so it’s a great menu item to split. Although, if you’re hungry, you can finish it yourself (I do every time…😋)
It’s made with decadent fresh-baked cinnamon bread and has berry puree drizzled around the sides of the plate. If you’re going with kiddos, you can ask for them not to skip that part.
This Southern California brunch spot is a must-go-to when you visit San Diego. With 11 locations in total, there are 7 in San Diego, so you can easily find one that’s close to where you are staying. This charming, almost rustic feeling brunch spot will hook you on the first bite of its delicious breakfast.
What to Order:
Omg. The Breakfast Republic is made for those with a sweet tooth. One of my sweet friends (hi, Megs) took me here once and I literally had to go three more times after that week, haha. Okay, so, you can go the pancake route or the french toast route. Here are the delicious deets.
S’MORES FRENCH TOAST
SO DANG GOOD. Graham cracker-crusted brioche bread comes smothered in toasted marshmallows and chocolate syrup.
OREO COOKIE PANCAKES
I’m crying literally writing this haha. These chocolate pancakes are “buttered” with oreo filling and cookie crumbles in between each layer. The stack of three is dusted with powdered sugar for a delicious final touch.
“FLIGHT OF 3” OR “FRENCH TOAST SAMPLER”
If you simply can’t decide, choose a flight of any three pancakes or a sampler of three french toasts. You can pick whatever suits your fancy, and trust me, these flavors will suit your fancy.
OREO COOKIE SPECIALTY LATTE
To top off your sweet breakfast (literally in every way), you have to try this specialty latte. It isn’t rot-your-teeth sweet, so it honestly makes a perfect side to your order of oreo cookie pancakes.
