After More Than 25 Years, Callahan's Pub & Brewery Calls It Quits | Broken Yolk To Move Into Mira Mesa

February 20, 2017

A pioneer in San Diego's craft beer community for 27 years, Callahan's Pub & Brewery announced today that it is closing for business by the end of the month. Moving into the space at 8111 Mira Mesa Boulevard is a new incarnation of The Broken Yolk Cafe franchise.

Callahan’s Pub & Brewery was opened in October of 1989 by two former restaurant managers from Mira Mesa, Scott Stamp and Lee Doxtader, who in 1993 also opened San Diego Brewing Company, which recently debuted a tasting room in H.G. Fenton’s Brewery Igniter space in North Park. Callahan's announced its closure on Facebook.
Randy Corrigan, who owns The Broken Yolk franchises in Del Mar, Oceanside and Carmel Mountain Ranch, will open a new location at the former-Callahan's space in Mira Mesa, anticipated to debut by this summer. Founded in 1979 in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood, Broken Yolk Cafe now serves breakfast and lunch from its 20 locations located throughout California, Arizona, Illinois and Florida. The breakfast chain is also in the process of opening a location in the new South Campus Plaza development at the corner of College Avenue and Montezuma Road near San Diego State University, which also includes a Eureka! and Trader Joe’s.

There is no exact date on when Callahan's will close, but the company told employees it would be by the end of February. Those missing Callahan's brews can visit San Diego Brewing Company at their brewpub at 10450 Friars Road in Mission Valley or the new tasting room at 3052 El Cajon Boulevard in North Park.
