Fig Tree Cafe

Top choice cafe in San Diego

You'll queue at the weekends for this laid-back outdoor cafe housed in an old cottage. Eat breakfast, brunch and lunch in the leafy garden area or patio, with heaters for cooler months. Our favorites are the stacked pancakes with strawberry, banana or orange, and melt-in-the-mouth Benedicts – accompanied by smoked turkey and avo, Canadian bacon, or with sun-dried tomato, spinach and basil.

The burritos and sandwiches are hearty affairs, too; the latter is served with fries or salad. Happy hour is between 2pm and 4pm daily, and includes two-for-one specialty drinks.
