Sat breakfast between SD airport and Oceanside

missmacc Mar 18, 2009 12:18 AM

I am flying into San Diego on Sat morning. I'd like to get a nice breakfast in between getting my rental car at the airport and driving to Oceanside. Just looking for something better than random crap off the freeway!

    further off the 5, but not by that much...

    The Naked Cafe in Solana Beach (off Lomas Santa Fe and approx 5 minutes off the freeway). I think it's better than Beach Grass Cafe.

    Americana or the Pacifica Breeze Cafe in Del Mar, about 5-10 min off the freeway. Park in the parking structure under the Del Mar Plaza for the easiest (paid) parking.

      The Mission at 3795 Mission Blvd in Pacific Beach. - http://www.themission1.signonsandiego...

      Ocean Beach Pier Cafe - halfway out the Ocean Beach pier - funky picturesque and very San Diego.

      And another vote for Perry's - 4620 Pacific Hwy. These are all close to the airport so assuming you'll be hungry before you land!

        You could get the "endless meat" breakfast (or something else) and some strudel at TipTop in Carlsbad.
