August 18, 2016

Wake up and smell the coffee! Whether you’re into a good ol’ cup of joe or require a super nutritious power shot to get your day started, we all know the early bird gets the worm. Slip out of your pajamas and into these six San Diego restaurants that are serving out-of-box cups of morning buzz.

Breakfast Republic has breakfast-goers cluckin’ for fan favorites like Oreo Pancakes and S’mores French Toast. Making it evident that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they don’t disappoint when it comes to creative breakfast drinks to accompany that pile of fluffy hotcakes. Choose from a variety of coffee drinks like the Salted Caramel Latte loaded with whipped cream, sprinkled with salt and drizzled with caramel. If that doesn’t add an AM pep in your step, we're not sure what will.

Farmer's Bottega Mexican Mocha
From benedicts to French toast, there is something to please every morning bird at Farmer’s Bottega. This Mission Hills hotspot knows breakfast isn’t complete without a little something sweet to wash it all down. That’s why they pour Mexican Mochas for all of your sipping pleasures. This drink combines the best of both worlds as it’s made with coffee, hot chocolate and little Latin kick of cinnamon spice to wake you up when you need it the most.

North Park’s Encontro is known for their fast service and good vibes, making it the perfect place to enjoy a cold brew while people watching on University Avenue. Best yet, they serve a cold brew coffee on Nitro by Stumptown Coffee Roasters that will impress any coffee-connoisseur. This Nitro Cold Brew is cascading and creamy with a smooth, nitro-draft feel.

With locations in Liberty Station, Pacific Beach and Hillcrest Fig Tree Café encompasses all that is the SoCal vibe we know and love. Wake up at this eatery and have a different kind of morning pick-me-up than you’re used to… an immune boosting mixer! Fig Tree Café offers plenty of health-conscious, morning drink options like the Living Tea Ginger Kombucha. This trendy tea includes lightly carbonated, fermented and organic tea, herbs and spices with probiotics, antioxidants and vitamins. This fizzy libation will start you off on a healthy note, preparing you to tackle the rest of your day.

Mission Beach’s Miss B’s Coconut Club is serving up Caribbean-style fare with a full-fledged tiki bar atmosphere. Safe to say you won’t find anything like it nor will you find a better place to get your drink on…cold brew drink on that is! With dishes like Coconut Rum French Toast and Jerk Chicken and Waffles, you might just be transported to a tropical island. But, nothing says “good morning” better than the Caribbean Coffee on draft. This Yirgacheffe Ethopia Cold Brew has been infused with nitrogen gas, making it creamier and richer than traditional iced coffee. One of these bad boys will have you coming back to Miss B’s every morning.

Now that your breakfast-drink horizon has been broadened, all you need to do is turn off that snooze button and make your way into these San Diego restaurants. You’ll never underestimate the power of a good morning buzz after trying their pick-me-ups!
