We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but you know what else is important? Having an amazingly delicious breakfast, beachside, while clinking mimosas and bloody marys. Now that’s a way to welcome the day! From stuffed french toast to salmon egg benedicts, Pacific Beach is home to some of the best breakfast places in San Diego, but which one is your favorite?

Every Saturday and Sunday, The Patio on Lamont hosts its “funky brunch, ” with innovative yet delicious selections including the bourbon dutch pancake and the breakfast flatbread.
