Excellent coffee and everything breakfast- French toast is fantastic. Enjoyed the bacon too. This place is dog and kid friendly.

They placed it's in the back which is a nice shared area, but then they promptly FORGOT ABOUT US. No body send us. I tried to wave someone down but nobody looked our way. Food is still good but just terrible service

First time at The Fig Tree Cafe today. We arrived at 9 on a Saturday morning and waited 15 mins for a table. The setting was certainly nice, with the huge ficus trees outside the cafe. My wife ordered a Bloody Mary while I got...More

Pacific Beach is very busy and not in a good way. There are moments when you want to escape the crush of the youthful crowd and beach people...and Fig Tree is the ideal place to go. Sit on a large, shaded patio and simply enjoy...More
