Backyard Kitchen and Tap

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Start your morning off right at Backyard Kitchen and Tap. Located only a block for the Pacific Beach sand, this hidden gem is family-friendly with great outdoor space for kids to run around. Backyard Kitchen & Tap has menu options that to please kids’ appetites and parents’ budget. We recommend the BKYD Bowl with bananas, blueberries, strawberries, honey, apple juice, homemade almond granola and acai. Little ones go for the Brioche French Toast that’s made with cinnamon batter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh seasonal berries and your choice of bacon or homemade sausage patties. Or you can opt for the Green Omelet, Brisket Hash or Chicken, Biscuit n’ Gravy for the best in comfort food.

Insider's Tip: Make sure to order a side of maple bacon donuts. They are delicious and will make your day even better! Backyard Kitchen & Tap is also pet friendly! So bring Fido to breakfast, too!
