    Food and service is good and a great atmosphere. If you are sensitive you better not eat here. I got sick.

    breakfast is the bomb. many gf options and they will make substitutions. don't be in a rush, many times there is a line, this place is popular and worth the wait. every time we forget how good the food and service are.

    I ordered a gf/df club and after I was finished the waitress said she forgot that there was milk in the bread. Ugh. It was an ok sandwhich but not worth the raging belly I have now.

    Loved my French Toast, Bacon, and Eggs on a rainy morning at Mission Beach. Great service. Great knowledge. Loved it so much that I took a sandwich home too!

    Too busy to wash pans, too small to prevent cross contamination. Bread source claimed to be made and processed in same facility that makes wheat breads with no separate ovens. Too many red flags for a celiac's safety. Ok for fad dieter in my opinion.

    Loved the Rosemary bread (and blackberry jam). Would have given five stars but they got my order wrong the first time and brought my sandwich with cheese even though I ordered it without. Bread was thickly sliced and made it hard to eat the sandwich with my hands as it started to fall apart so I had to use a fork and knife.

    I was very excited to have gfree French toast but then very disappointed to find out that they used the same batter on the regular french toast to dip the gfree French toast... Cooking surface is one thing, but batter filled with regular crumbs is another! I still had some very good chicken apple sausages and rosemary bread that was "just okay". Our server was nice... The atmosphere is nice as well... Just don't show up excited to have french toast! ;)

    Great separate gluten free menu with large selection! Everything tastes wonderful! The The french toast is good (beware the French toast may have cross contamination because they use the same mix for both GF and regular bread)

    The power Plato was delicious! The rosemary toast was a great replacement for the tortillas. I want to go back for a GF lunch.

    good rosemary gf bread, but not impressed with service. our waitress, when asked if they were careful with cross contamination, said, "hope so." not what a severely sensitive Celiac wants to hear. I risked it anyways and had a nice sandwich.

    Food was ok, ordered eggs over easy with my meal and scrambled eggs came out, they took those and didn't bring the others for about 15 minutes and I was done eating by then. We both left unimpressed, pretty generic breakfast food.

    I ordered eggs, rosemary potatoes, gf rosemary bread and sausage. It was good and I didn't get sick. The bread is dense and thick. The potatoes were kinda burnt.

    I usually get the Rosemary off the GF menu, with eggs over hard instead of scrambled. The rosemary potatoes are really good, and always have lots of crispy bits. The GF rosemary bread is phenomenal!!!! There is a gf french toast option, which I haven't yet tried, but I wish you could get gf pancakes here!

    We've been here a couple times. Once with our Pup and once without. We loved it both times. For lunch I had a sandwich on the house made GF Rosemary bread. For breakfast I had a croissant sandwich and it was amazing! Pup had a great time too.

    Tasty food, not Celiac friendly. GF bread not toasted separately. They were really kind, and brought me untoasted out of a fresh bag, but without toasting was so dry. No kids menu. Very limited choices for celiac- quite certain you can't avoid cross contamination.

    I was happy to see they had a gluten free menu but there is risk for cross contamination. The manager said he wasn't familiar with Celiac but took time to listen to our needs. He made a special plate for my son and used new utensils and pans in the kitchen to avoid any contamination.

    Amazing! I love this place! The rosemary potatoes are OFF THE HOOK good and the GF rosemary bread with blackberry jam... I over-ate here more than once because it was just so good. Scrambled eggs are fluffy and need no ketchup - so yum. Try an iced Thai coffee if you're looking for a drink - yum!

    I had the gluten free French toast and it was wonderful! They did inform me upon ordering that the homemade gf bread would be dipped in the same batter as the regular bread but that worked for me as I do not have celiacs. They offer a seperate gf menu and the staff is very friendly and helpful

    Honestly, I wasn't overly impressed with the Mission for what it was hyped up to be. Although everything on the menu looked good - I wasn't overly impressed with their sandwiches that we got. I also noticed that the bread was toasted (only after I had eaten a part of it) and I'm really wondering where they toast it??). They waiter seemed rushed to understand my gluten allergy (even though they were super busy). The bread was way too thick and didn't hold up (go figure, it's gluten-free!!). I guess I could have ordered breakfast before really judging the place, but to have to wait SO long to get it, it might just be easier eating gluten-free breakfast on my own!

    Had the turkey sandwich on homemade rosemary GF bread! Bread was soft and thick, it fell apart a bit, but it was worth it to not have a sandwich on toast! Oh and have their coffee! They use local San Diego roaster Cafe moto! BEST COFFEE!!!! :) next time I'm have breakfast, my mom got the sweet tamales that were GF and vegetarian. We will be back!

    The turkey sandwich with gkuten free rosemary bread was a large sized sandwich and icluded fresh tomatoes and lettuce. Separately they serve a salad included and everything tasted really good as was fresh. We did our sandwiches as take away and called ahead to pick up on our way to the San Diego Int'l Airport since the airport does not offer gluten free options. I will go back again!! If you go to eat inside on a Sunday morning for brunch or lunch, give yourself plenty of time. Not much else available in the area and the food is good.
