Does anyone know of a good place to have breakfast on Christmas day? I have a group of 40 that had a reservation at St Tropez in Hillcrest but the owner just called and cancled last night, saying he didn't want to have to fully man the shop on Christmas.

Ideally, it would be a nice cozy place, like Naked Cafe, Hash House,Bread and Ce, but none of those places are open. So at this point I'm wide open to suggestions. Just want good food.

  1. Have you checked with The Prado in Balboa Park. They are almost always open on holidays.

    1. Check City Deli 6th/University, I love there breakfasts. For that matter I haven't had a bad meal in over 10 years of going there..

      Merry Christmas!

        1. I do hope you've been using the phone rather than just looking here and waiting for a suggestion since you have FORTY people who need to be told when and where....

            It's more than just the 40 people. Finding a spot to accommodate 40 people for breakfast on any morning is hard enough let alone a holiday!
