A few weeks ago, I made a list of 100 good things to eat (and drink) in San Diego, and you can bet that if I'd had these back then, they would have been right up there near the top. A couple of Sundays ago I
I'm always hard pressed to make breakfast or brunch recommendations here in town, because so many places are hit or miss, and/or have a ridiculous wait on weekends. I just don't believe in that - though it seems a lot of people feel differently, judging by the crowds outside Hash House on weekend mornings. There are a few places that have just one good dish on the menu, like Brockton Villa (which I still like because I just love that little house) with their Coast Toast, Hob Nob with their Corned Beef Hash, and Crest Cafe's ricotta pancakes. There's really only one dish I like at Hash House too, now that I think about it. Sage Fried Chicken with Maple Reduction (that did make the list) but I just can't bring myself to wait an hour and a half for it. Urban Solace also serves good brunch, with an especially nice pecan french toast.
Farmhouse is only open for brunch on Sundays, which coincides nicely with the nearby Hillcrest market. That is, if you can resist the Thai coconut pancakes and kefta kebab sandwiches offered there...
