Very early breakfast in San Diego

I'm driving a friend from Escondido to the airport and will be done at 6 am. Anyplace interesting, swank rather than dive, for me to have breakfast? Thanks.

  1. Cafe Chloe or Park House are nice.

      Thanks for the suggestions, but Chloe opens at 7:30, Park not until 8:30. I really want something at 6 or I'll just go home and catch some more sleep.

        McCormick and Schmick at the Omni Hotel next to Petco has a nice Breakfast Buffet along with menu ordering and they open at 6 AM I do believe

          I am not really exited about it but Cafe 222 is not bad and we had breakfast there at around 6:30 am after brought visitors to the airport.

            What's better waiting in traffic?

              I'm never in San Diego so early. Will I hit bad traffic at 7:30 am?

                depends on the day.... if weekend, no...

        2. just returned from a weekend trip down there. In gaslamp many people recc Cafe 222 for waffles, Richards in gaslamp for pancakes. The Cheese shop for any other breakfast items :) enjoy!

          1. Flight is even earlier, so guess I'll just drive home and go back to bed. Thanks for the ideas.

            1. love love love the Waterfront for breakfast and a bloody..
              MaryJane's at the Hard Rock Gaslamp has a pretty good breakfast too.


              1. What about The Mission in downtown? I think they open early. Sort of a bohemian swank.
