What was very good was these guys were open at 4.15AM when most other restaurants and United Lounge was closed. Good service and very good breakfast options. Perhaps a tad expensive but it is an airport.

Mission Bar and Grill was a great place to sit while at the San Francisco airport waiting for my nonstop flight back to Tampa. My server, Manuel, introduced me to Firestone 805 beer that was outstanding. Went well with my fish and chips.

The service was professional and the food is so yummy and served piping hot. I was hungry for something hot instead of grabbing the typical airport sandwich. I ordered a breakfast burrito and couldn't eat the entire thing. My spouse ordered the mission breakfast and...More
