5. Snooze – Del Mar

Snooze has decadent and salty brunch favorites, but don’t expect to get seated right away. There will be a long line if you come on the weekends (with coffee for those waiting), all for a good reason. Order the Pancake Flight so you can try a little bit of every flavor.

4. The Tractor Room – Hillcrest

Five star service keeps patrons coming back for more at The Tractor Room. Plus, the line isn’t as long as other popular brunch places. The food is amazing and there is a great variety from the typical meal of pancakes and eggs.

3. Purple CafePacific Beach

This hidden gem usually has a line all the way to the sidewalk. Coffee is good, food is delicious, and sometimes there is even live music playing. Free Wifi, too! Their bagel sandwiches are amazing – try the pesto scrambler!

2. The Mission – North Park

With an extensive coffee and brunch menu, this might become your go to weekend recovery spot. People from all over wait in line to snag a meal at this spot. Whether you are craving pancakes or a sandwich, The Mission is sure to live up to the hype.

1. The CottageLa Jolla

The Cottage gets the number one spot for the amazing service and delectable brunch. Come on, who really doesn’t like a delicious mid morning stuffed French toast. The line may be long, but they serve you coffee cakes and coffee while you’re waiting. Yum!
