In the morning we found a great local breakfast haunt called Newbreak Coffee and Cafe on Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach. They offer a wide variety of options for breakfast and lunch including wraps, muffins, scones and delicious vegetarian quinoa bowls as well as really good coffee! (I can highly recommend the coffee and the quinoa bowls.)

The meal was very good and well priced. You have to bus your own tables but it is tasty food and the menu has a lot of variety. I had the vegetarian egg white sandwich and the chipotle aioli on it was very good.

Perfect location right by the beach. Nice place to get some work done (their wifi is ok and you will find more people working on their laptops). Their coffee and muffins aren't anything special and a bit overpriced, plus they close quite early. They do have a great selection of tea.

Very nice place for breakfast, snacks and coffee drinks. It is a quaint place with some street seating. The wait staff is helpful but somewhat overwhelmed with the long lines. Everything I sampled was tasty and worth the money

This counts as three reviews in one, as I came with two more colleagues. We had spent some time at other cafes, but were sorely disappointed. When we got to Newbreak, we were blown away! The service was AMAZING, the cafe is cool, and the food is GREAT! I ordered an iron skillet Fritatta, and it was fabulous. The coffee... More

I love breakfast but not a big breakfast so this cafe has the perfect selection of bakery options, healthy foods and smoothies and a coffee selection i haven't seen anywhere else. If they had one of these where I lived I would pick here over Starbucks any day.

This place is right across the street from the beach (and the public parking lot). Their tables on the sidewalk in front are pet friendly. There were a lot of people sitting here working on computers, but still space to sit and eat at lunchtime on a Monday. Food was decent.
