Breakfast on the Patio: The Fig Tree Cafe

Image

John and I were strolling around Pacific Beach a while back when we noticed a crowd of people waiting to get into the Fig Tree Cafe on Cass Street. It was pretty inside, and the menu looked good, but we'd just eaten. Finally, this weekend, we made it back.

Image

Eating at the Fig Tree is like eating on your neighbor's patio, casual and laid back. Their menu states that they make everything to order, nothing is pre-cooked.

Image

I have never heard of Meatloaf Hash ($10.25) before, so I had to try it . Diced pieces of savory meatloaf, chunks of red potatoes in their skins, and a handful of baby spinach, tossed together with pesto. It was unusual, and tasty. The three over easy eggs had a little too much oil, but were nicely cooked. Lots of food there, I ended up taking a good bit of it home.

Image

John's Monterey Scramble ($9.75) had three eggs, mixed with scallions, Ortega chiles, Monterey cheese, and diced bacon. It was light and fluffy, with sides of well seasoned black beans and Mexican rice. Instead of salsa, there was a decent ranchero sauce, and tortillas to wrap everything up.

The Fig Tree Cafe serves a full range of coffee drinks, made with local roasters Cafe Moto beans, eggs are sourced from a family owned farm in Ramona, CA.
