Maybe you had a big night out at nearby Petco Park, or overdid it at the clubs and lounges in the neighboring Gaslamp Quarter and need a reliable breakfast. This preserved corner building from the 1870s serves morning staples like french toast made with housemade cinnamon bread, plus some of SoCal go-to's, like breakfast burritos and chilaquiles. It also has a full coffee bar with great drip and specialty drinks—order the hammerhead, which combines espresso and drip for a more aggressive jolt. When you’re feeling more like a normal human, head over to The Quartyard. They’re always hosting different events like live music, roller skating, yoga classes, and more.
