Fig Tree Cafe: Breakfast Sushi at Liberty Station San Diego

Located on the south side of Liberty Station, next to a Tender Greens and a yoga studio, Fig Tree Cafe fits in perfectly. It is one of those places you would expect to find yogi’s eating at after their class, and that is a good thing as it has a relaxed vibe and fun atmosphere. Of course, none of that matters if the food isn’t good, and with a menu that includes breakfast sushi, it had a lot to live up to for me. Thankful, it was even better then I expected it to be, and I am glad I stumbled on it. Here is all the info.

Fig Tree Cafe-1

The restaurant is located right in the middle of a courtyard, and I almost walked past it when I was looking for it as the sign blends in. Most of the seating is on the outside under a beautiful awning, which provides shade for the meal. There is a lot of seating, and we had no problem getting a table on Friday morning.

The staff was fantastic as well, super friendly, and they kept the coffee flowing. Here is what we ordered:

Pecan Coffee Cake

Fig Tree Cafe-5

Smooth pecan flavor, suitable for sharing as an appetizer for breakfast or just to have while you sip coffee. The fresh strawberries are a welcomed addition too.

Wally Burrito

Fig Tree Cafe-6

First off, the rosemary country potatoes are mind-blowing. So good with a massive flavor and a flakey crunch skin, make sure to order them. The burrito had three eggs, avocado, scallions, and cheese; it was hearty and fantastic.

Breakfast Sushi

Fig Tree Cafe-7

This is the reason I went, as I saw a photo of this online and needed to experience it myself. The bacon is candied with brown sugar and paprika; then, it is wrapped around rice, eggs, and scallions, which make up the sushi middle. The whole dish is served with a bacon and plum sauce that I would recommend you put on the side as it is a little strange. I honestly thought this was something that would look better than it tasted, but I was wrong.

Fig Tree Cafe-3

Overall, Fig Tree Cafe is an excellent spot for breakfast in the Liberty Station area. We went there when we were staying on Shelter Island at Kona Kai, and I am glad we did. I love trying places that have something unique, and the breakfast sushi fit the bill. All in all, I recommend you give it a try and be sure to head to Stone while you are there as well.
