Graduation Lunch and/or Brunch

My family will be coming down to SD for my graduation at the end of May. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for some good restaurant choices. Nothing too expensive, but still nice. I'm not looking for a dinner spot (it's a morning ceremony). I'm graduating from SDSU, but I don't mind taking my family towards downtown or the beaches. Any recommendations would be nice though!

      It's going to be on a Saturday the weekend before (21st). I would prefer to stay within 10 maybe 20minutes of State. I know no one is going to want to go too far.

    2. Urban Solace. Patio if the weather is nice. Make a reservation.

      Urban Solace Restaurant

      1. Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano

            Remember, he said somewhere "nice". And he's graduating college. Sure, the pizza may be great. But when I think of inviting out of town family to go to a "nice" lunch, for a college graduation, Bruno's wouldn't be anywhere near that list.

            I think Beach Chick's recommendations above would be a much better choice.
