The Mission (Mission Beach)

Brunch: a magical word that makes all right with the world. There’s something special about sleeping in late and going out for a delicious meal prepared by an expert chef–and dishes all whisked away to be cleaned by somebody else. It truly is one of life’s simple luxuries. If there’s one thing to be said for Doug’s zany Friday through Tuesday work schedule, it’s that “the weekend” is Wednesday and Thursday and we never have to wait in line for brunch.

The Mission restaurant

One of my favorite San Diego eateries has been, for years, The Mission. My visits have been split between their locations in North Park and in Mission Beach. Both offer the same delectable menu and the same high quality service.

It was at The Mission that I discovered what rosemary potatoes are. If I could eat a heaping plateful of their rosemary potatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I would say that it was a good day. Unfortunately, last time I brunched I decided to branch out and didn’t order the rosemary potatoes, so I don’t have the appropriate photo evidence. Everything on the menu is simply terrific though! I could go on, but I’ll let the photos of my Mission French Toast and Doug’s Power Plato Breakfast speak for themselves.
