Whether you’re more of an early-bird-gets-the-worm type, or one who hits snooze more times than you’d care to admit, starting your day off right is key.  Plus, February is National Hot Breakfast Month, which means you’ll have even more of a reason to crawl out from under the covers. Check out of a few San Diego brunch spots serving up piping hot breakfast dishes for the city’s morning foodies.

There’s a reason Breakfast Republic’s empire of locations is always growing: the first meal of the day is definitely the best when spent there. Even better, their unique and delicious menu selections include a ton of hot breakfast options. Our favorites? The Shrimp & Grits breakfast is the definition of comfort food, and the Breakfast Sammie (complete with Jurassic Pork Bacon) will get you ready for an epic day.

Farmer’s Table‘s delectable assortment of Benedicts (Classic, Short Rib and Crab Cake, just to name a few) will stop you in your tracks, but if that’s still not enough, look no further than their omelets and frittatas. The Asiago Fennel Sausage Frittata, stuffed with bell peppers, caramelized onions and fresh mozzarella, can’t be beat. Head to any one of their locations in La Mesa, Bay Park and Little Italy to get your fill!

Lazy Hippo, the “Best Breakfast in Gaslamp,” is your downtown destination for all things breakfast and brunch. The Chilaquiles, amazing selection of egg breakfast sandwiches, and traditional American breakfast egg plates, make it the place to be once your alarm clock rings.

Miss B’s Coconut Club in Pacific Beach serves up a lot more than just cocktails and tropical vibes: their weekend brunch menu includes hits like their Coconut Club Breakfast Burrito and Cubano Benedict with garlic buttered kolache toast, duroc ham, pulled pork, house spiced mustard, poached eggs, jerk hollandaise, served with house potatoes.

Carlsbad’s breakfast newcomer (arriving on February 4th), Toast Gastrobrunch, is the latest mecca for hot breakfasts. Their signature dish, Eggs in Purgatory, prepared with poached eggs in a spicy shashuska sauce, with mushrooms, bacon, feta, scallions, and mint in a sourdough bread bowl, is the perfect way to celebrate this month of epic brunch bashes.

Still wanting more hot spots? You’ll be dreaming of Mavericks Beach Club’sweekend brunch all week long. Whether you opt for the breakfast buffet (think Cornflake French Toast!) or the a la carte Breakfast Tacos, you won’t be disappointed by this Pacific Beach go-to.

Even if you consider yourself to be a night owl, set your alarm a little earlier this month to partake in National Hot Breakfast Month festivities!
