Breakfast and brunch
There are so many good options, you are not going to want to waste a meal here. Do yourself a huge favor and skip the hotel breakfast. Check out some of these recommendations instead, including Richard Walker’s Pancake House and Great Maple, to name a few.
Breakfast is always popular, and that will mean longer-than-average waits in most places. If you can schedule your brunch experience for a weekday and avoid the weekends, you won’t have to wait nearly as long.
There are few who will argue with the assertion that San Diego has some of the best Mexican food you’ll find anywhere in the U.S. However, specific restaurant recommendations are a contentious issue because everyone has their personal favorites, and they’re all different.
One key thing to note is that the further you get from the downtown area, the better the food will be in general. Don’t be afraid to go off the beaten path here in search of that perfect burrito. If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, be sure to try Coasterra.
If you have time during your stay, you’re definitely going to want to schedule a brewery tour. San Diego boasts some of the best craft breweries in the country. If you’re a fan of craft beers, you are not going to want to miss this opportunity.
