The Fig Tree Cafe, located in the eclectic, historic community of Hillcrest in San Diego, is one of my favorite places to start a relaxing weekend. They have a great menu of homemade items, and you definitely have to try the house-made rosemary focaccia bread.
They open at 8 a.m. on weekends, and I recommend coming early, the place will fill up fast. There is patio seating, where you can enjoy the soft morning light. They also have health drink shots, like açai berry to give you an energy boost.
I'm not really into a lot of sweet stuff in the mornings, but their mascarpone-stuffed french toast, topped with strawberries and mangoes, is absolutely divine! I can only eat one and the other I take home for dessert.
